Coffee and Carols - Saturday 5th December

There will be a Hamper raffle, Mince pies and Sarah's famous hot chocolate!

The band's 20th Birthday CD will be available at Coffee and Carols - £5 each!!

Christmas information

Playing Christmas Carols is a very worthwhile way to spend an hour or two over the Christmas period as it raises valuable funds for local charities. We shall also need parents or adult supporters to be collectors when we play at supermarkets etc.
If you are caroling please wear something warm, dark trousers and dark shoes.
This year's charities that the band are raising money for are: East Suffolk Association for the Blind (ESAB); The Sunrise Appeal (Ipswich Hospital fund for sick children and babies); Kim You'll never walk alone - Kesgrave High School Pupil.

If events are cancelled due to bad weather or any other reason, information will be on the website

We are planning a quiz night for Saturday 13th February 2016, 7pm start at St Michaels Church.
£10 per team with a maximum of 6 people per team.

Your Suggestions please!
