UKULELE BAND ENTERTAIN THE "WALK FOR LIFE" WALKERS

On Saturday night the 9th September sixteen members of the " St Ed's Ukulele Band " turned out to brave the weather and entertain the 2500 women walkers who entered the Walk For Life organised to raise funds for St Nicholas Hospice. Some of the songs were rather topical for the event and it was noticeable from the walker’s reaction how they enjoyed a wide range of pop and rock including some classics such as

"These boots were made for walking" "Rave On" & "Rock around the Clock"

The St Eds Ukulele group was formed around eighteen months ago and meet every Tuesday evening at the Risbygate Sports Club in Westley Road Bury St Edmunds and anybody interested in coming alone for a free one off taster session are welcome. We will even supply you with a Ukulele for the evening and give you some basic tuition after which you can decide if you would like to join the group who boast a wide range of skill from novice to very good but when we are all playing you cannot tell the difference. Call John on 07548 543597 or Carol on 01284 830502

Thank you to All the ladies of the Craft Club for their wonderful support

Hello everyone, this year we raised £622.30 for Macmillan Cancer Support and £106.00 for Children in Need- a great achievement

My sincere thanks go to everyone who supported us – Risbygate staff, club members and not least, those lovely, funny ladies in the Art & Craft club who did all the hard work in making cakes, biscuits, bacon butties and endless cups of tea and coffee. Without them, nothing would happen!

Great to know we can help other people in time of need, as we enjoy our time together

Thank you very much
