Hi all, Just wondering how many on the forum are from or originally from Rochdale up here in the sunny North West? Would be nice to see how many national Bandsmen this hotbed of banding has given to the nation! So, if you live, have ever lived, play or have played for a band in the Rochdale Area(Littleborough, Milnrow, Wardle, Rochdale Wilsons, Co-op, Youth Band, Kingsway or others I don't remember!), here's the place to let us know. C'mon Rochdalians, shout out to the world!! BTW, for those of you not familiar with Rochdale, in WW2 Hitler wanted to transport our Town Hall to Berlin he liked it that much! Oh, and apparently some women named Fields & Stansfield were born here. Left as well didn't they!
