    I have just moved to Telford and am thinking of starting playing again! Just wondered if there are any bands around the Telford area!

    Don't know anything much about them but I remembered that they have Telford in their name so must be based there or thereabouts. Only thing I do know is that they're entered in the Third Section, Midlands for the first time this year.

    Langley are Championship Section - 25mins from Telford, just off J4 on M5. We already have other members travelling from Telford, so I'm sure you could grab a lift.
    Please PM me, or bottyburp for details.

    Didn't mean to imply Jackfield weren't a "fine" band... I just wasn't sure if you were still 1st section. I have recorded the band on 2 separate occasions and enjoyed both times.
