New Home - The Old Chapel Melmerby

Editor 0 642

We've done it. Following an appeal to band members, they themselves loaned the band, within 7 days, the purchase price of a new Bandroom! 

The Old Chapel as Melmerby is just perfect for our needs. Loads of space for rehearsal, concerts, storage, and even socialising. It will accommodate our main and training bands easily. It needs some work to get it exactly as we want it but what a great team we have. Only 1 week in and already we have a big open space with a new floor - One happy band smiley

We were delighted to be able to work with Wetherby Riverside Trust and open their Summer Season by performing, near the bandstand, in a secure and safe environment. 

Great fun and so glad to be back playing as a band after 15 months off!
