    I've just had a request to see if Lees band can do this, but we're already booked. So I'm posting this on behalf of the enquirer.

    St George's Church Mossley are looking for a brass band to lead our procession on Whit Friday, the 13th of June. We start at the church at 9,15 and finish about
    11.30. The route is around Mossley for about one and a half miles
    At the finish at St George's Church there will be refreshments provided
    We can offer a fee of £350.00. Please contact me at
    Or telephone 01457833499 or mobile 07979507609
    Thank you. David Brown

    Is the Mossley MF's band not around anymore? I 'm sure they used to do this procession, and I think you'll find it hard to get another band as from what I recall Mossley is like a cross between Shaun of the dead, and The hills have eyes at that time of day.

    I just passed the message on as the result of an enquiry...

    Concorde Band did this last year but have contacted David to advise that they can't make the trip this year.
    I know there's always a few extra bands knocking about in Saddleworth (the Camping & Caravanning Club and at least one foreign band on each of the occasions I've played), so I'd have thought that any contribution to coach hire/hotel costs would be welcome.
