The bandstand is ALMOST finished! There may even be a band on it on Sunday, 3rd of July, please come along and join in.

We hope to have a grand opening very soon, so keep your eyes open for our posters and press releases!

Look on our facebook page for some great photos, then come on Sunday and see the real thing!


Thanks to everyone who came long to the AGM on a pretty wet evening! We hope you enjoyed Keith Walker’s wonderful talk as much as we did.

Bandstand Collections

All through summer Sandra has been out on the green each Sunday collecting for Bandstand Restoration at the concerts on the green.  We are pleased to say Sandra raised £317 for her efforts and this money will go towards our Bandstand fund.

This was a post from 2014. Another round of collections took place in 2015, with a similar amount raised. A huge thank you to all the bandstand aficionados, and you’ll be pleased to know the bandstand should be restored in time for this year’s concerts. You may see us down there, but we won’t be shaking any buckets at you!
