St Michaels church has been booked for this informal event, all band families are invited to bring along a picnic and join in the fun. We will provide board games and rounder's, football etc. we are also looking for performers to entertain the crowds! We will be setting up an "open mike" stage for our members to show off their performing talents, no restrictions (just family friendly!) there will also be a hamper raffle to cover the church costs, we will be asking for donations a few weeks before. Please put the date in your diary and dust off those picnic hampers.

Friday 21st July

Our first practice back will be on:

Friday 1st Sept.

Practice arrangements for June

Prelims are in the church and Inters are in the scout hut.
There is no scout hall on the 7th June so there will be a joint practice for both prelims and inters in the church.
