We have really appreciated the kindness of everyone at George Lane United Reformed Church providing us with a great temporary rehearsal space while we could take our time to find a more suitable venue. We also must thank Claire Byrom for all the hard work and effort she put in last year finding us the venue.

Moving Into Our New Home :)

Well after a long search, we’re finally going to be getting the majority our equipment moved in to our new home at George Lane United Reformed Church in Bredbury tonight!

We’ve a little more lifting and shifting to do but we’re very much looking forward to getting settled in and being able to call somewhere ‘home’ again after being made homeless earlier in the year.

The band have pulled together brilliantly though and put on some cracking performances over the summer even through all the disruption – still managing to make each and every one of our regular events. A huge thanks to all members for the extra effort you’ve put in!

For anyone who would like to come and join us for a toot and see our new home, you can find us Tuesday evenings 8-10 pm in the backroom of the Sunday School to the rear of the main church, United Reformed Church, 41 George Lane, Bredbury, Stockport SK6 1AT (entrance to the bandroom through the little gate!…). Come and say hello and perhaps join us for a game of pool/table football in the break!
