The July pond concert was played in wonderful evening sunshine. The band’s next performance will be on Sunday 7th August starting at 4pm, when the band will be playing on the village green. There will be tea and cakes for sale and opportunities to support this wonderful village band and the afternoon will end with a Last Night of the Proms feature with singing and flag waving.
