    Hi All,

    I'm organising a scratch band in aid of The-Forget-Me-Not-Trust on Sunday 5th August at The Diggle Hotel in Saddleworth.

    The concert starts at 2pm and the band will be made up of well-known players from bands including Hepworth, YBS, BT, Faireys, Pennine and more.

    It would be great to see as many people as possible there to support this concert which is to raise money for this Huddersfield based charity.

    Further details of the charity's work can be found here.

    There seems to be a problem with your link - I think you mean this instead ;)

    Do we need tickets for this concert or is it pay on the door?
    Also, if you can create some directions or a map, I'll make sure our band are aware of it.

    No tickets are needed. It's an outdoor concert very similar to the concerts at the Navi in Dobcross.

    All money is raised via a collection tray at the end of the concert and a raffle.

    I've found a map -

    and the address is.. Diggle Hotel, Station Houses, Diggle, Saddleworth, Lancashire, OL3 5JZ

    Thanks, Claire.

    Still in need of a couple of front and back row cornets if anyone would like to play?

    Obviously, as it's a charity event no expenses can be paid.

    Please private message me if you are interested.

    Thanks, Claire.

    Have you got any flyers for this? My friend has an equestrian and pet food store in Diggle and she'd be happy to have some of your flyers out in the shop if you've got some! Let me know if you want to do this!:)

    Just a quick update....

    Full band now (I can relax!!) Bands invloved are ... Hepworth, B&R, Timperley, Sellers, YBS, Pemberton, Faireys, Lindley and Wingates.

    I'm afraid I haven't got any flyers but I know there are some posters up and around the Saddleworth area.

    There will also be a stall selling merchandise with the charity's logo on. Things such as pin badges, trolley coin keyrings, mugs, teddies and a cd that has just been made so bring a load of cash with you!

    Thanks for all the interest, hope to see you all on Sunday.

    Thanks to all those who played today and who came to support.

    Was excellent to see such a large audience.

    £700.00 was raised for a very worthwhile cause.
