Rehearsals

It is important that each of the bands enjoy full commitment for rehearsals, concerts, contests and jobs. If for any reason you cannot attend we ask that you give us as much notice as possible.  A diary is available on rehearsal evenings for the use of players to enter future absences. For short notice absences we ask that you text or call 07429 615881.

 

Dropping off and picking up players at Poynton Methodist Church  

We ask all drivers not to drive onto the area in front of the church when dropping off and picking up players. This is for safety reasons but also because the church administrators have specifically asked us not to drive vehicles on to the tarmac area in front of the church building.
