Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas in Whaley Bridge without the band playing carols. Shoppers at Tescos stocking up for the festive season were entertained over the weekend before the big day by players from both Senior and Training Bands in an epic “carol-athon. Many thanks to Tescos for their hospitality, and to the residents of Whaley Bridge for their generosity in donating to band funds - over £1000 was raised over the weekend.
Thank you also to Peter Cull for the photos.
This annual event at Whaley Bridge Bowling Club is always a huge hit to a capacity audience, and even more spectacular than ever this year with all members of both Senior and Training Bands “massed” together for the whole event. A huge vote of thanks goes to Paul Sanders who directed the band through a challenging programme of both new pieces and old favourites – with the usual enthusiastic audience participation!
