The Picnic in the Park on Saturday 10th June was an outstanding success.
The Marple Band and Hawk Green Band entertained the crowds at Marple Memorial park from 2:30 until 5:00pm in superb June sunshine. This first concert of this kind in the park is not likely to be the last; based on superb feedback from an enthusiastic audience.
Thanks go to the Marple and Hawk Green Bands who played a set of 30 minutes each, followed by a massed band for the final three songs. A wide range of music from traditional to pop music was played. Thank you to Sue Ingham and the bandroom committee who helped ensure its success. There was a collection at the end to raise funds for the upkeep of the band room.
