Trailer Trail - Update!

Thank you to everyone who walked, donated, sponsored, helped and organised the trailer trail on Saturday 15th June. We are extremely pleased to report that we have raised a massive £500 towards the new band trailer! So many people were so generous with both time and money making this happen, so thank you very much to all involved. If you have any outstanding sponsor money, please give this to Sarah Cable or Chris Howard before the summer break. Well done everyone, great effort!
