A very special ‘THANK YOU’ to Janette and Cyril Morris for the piano now resident in the Lounge. Many of our groups that regularly use the lounge will now be able to enjoy the music that gives pleasure and supports them in the work they are doing. A very generous gift gratefully received.
Thank you also to the great crew of strong ‘fellows’ who arranged to get it moved and installed. Well done.
Save the date: Movie night “Brassed Off” Saturday 29th April 5.15pm
“Funny, moving and heart warming” – for Danny it is music that embodies the spirit of the mining community in which he lives. But as the closure of the mines looms large on the horizon, not all the members of the Colliery Brass Band can share his passion. However, attitudes change with the arrival of the gorgeous Gloria and a new wave of enthusiasm sweeps through the band. Gloria’s former classmate Andy is particularly smitten as the band embarks on the battle for the National Championships. Conflicts soon begin to surface between friends, family, colleagues and lovers. Yet a defiant spirit is re-awoken in the band, leading them on a triumphant journey that will tell their story to the nation.
