On Thursday evening, it was great to know that as well as residents clapping for the NHS and key-workers at 8pm, some of our talented musicians were playing Over the Rainbow!
That certainly cheered the neighbours up!
Thanks to Judith Dewdney, Andy Crosland and Ann & Roger Cousin for their photos and videos.
One of our videos shows Andy playing the Euphonium — he tells us that he has played in Brass Bands all his life, and he currently plays Solo Euphonium for Bollington Band. He also plays in and conducts the Camping and Caravan Club Brass Band, which is great fun when they are allowed to meet up in normal times, with players coming together from all over the country.
Judith and Ann are both very well known in Henbury, with Judith playing the organ at St Thomas Church, and Ann with her famous Annie's Saints and Sinners Jazz band!
Thanks to all of them.
