"Cobwebs" Spennymoor Group

Many people will know that a new group is starting soon – in Spennymoor, County Durham – under the inimitable leadership of Greg Pullen.
Here is some basic information about the first rehearsal:
WHEN?…… Wednesday 8th September (2010) at 8pm – this slightly later than expected time is due to hall logistics.
WHERE?…. St. Paul’s Community Centre,  Spennymoor,  DL16 7LR.
(it’s in St. Paul’s Street, behind St. Paul’s church, to the W-SW of Spenny town centre)
HOW MUCH? – the usual Cobweb Orchestra charges will apply. First “Cobwebs” visit free, although if you’re reading this it probably won’t be your first visit!
New players will be more than welcome. If anything changes (unlikely) another e-epistle will be sent.
David Wood.

Snow update from Consett

Dear all
In view of the dispatch from our local reporter, I think it’s sensible to postpone the start of term at St. Pat’s until next Thursday 14th January. 7.15pm as usual.
I hope to see many of you there to play (amongst lots of other things) Borodin’s 1st symphony. It works best with plenty of trumpets and trombones, so bring along brass playing friends, won’t you?
I also hope you’re not too inconvenienced by the weather and are just enjoying a few extra days cuddling up in a warn home.
Best wishes
Andy

Consett snowed off tonight, Thurs 17 Dec 09

Dear players,
I have taken account of the current conditions in Consett (poor, with snow lying) and the Met Office’s warnings (see www.metoffice.gov.uk ) and decided not to risk people’s lives.
I am therefore – reluctantly – taking the decision to cancel tonight’s rehearsal.
I’m sorry you’ll miss the festivities – you’ll just have to eat your grub and drink your booze with friends at home!
Have an excellent Christmas, and we’ll re-start at Consett on 7th Jan 2010 (assuming the weather has improved!)
All the best,
David

New group at The Sage from 23.9.09 for ten weeks

In September we start a 10 week residency to see if we can establish a daytime rehearsal group on Tyneside. For years, people have been lobbying for two things; a weekly group in Newcastle/Gateshead and a chance to play during daylight hours Monday to Friday. These two requests have magically come together in the Residency, so I hope lots of you will turn up and tell all your friends to come too. As it’s to be a new group, less experienced players will be made especially welcome. There will not be pre-enrolment for these sessions, but please e-mail Liz to say if you intend coming.
Andy
