The August meeting was a members evening with Mrs Rosemary Heath in the Chair. Rosemary welcomed three visitors to the meeting.


After the main business of the meeting Rosemary introduced our speaker for the evening, Mr Brian Lightowler, a very talented musician and piano accordionist.  He had brought with him several piano accordions and  started  off by playing Jerusalem to which we all gave a very  hearty rendition.  He then went on to explain the workings of the accordion taking one of his older ones apart and encouraging us all to have a go at producing a sound by blowing in and sucking out on the reeds.  He demonstrated the difference between a jig and a reel and  went on to play various lively pieces.  He rounded off the  evening with a very enjoyable singalong.  Joan Dowse gave the vote

of thanks.


The winners if the competition, a holiday postcard, were Bar Harrisonn first and Sue Addinell second.  Kath Bullock's banjolele was chosen to go forward to the Cloud Group competition. Delicious refreshments were served by members of the Committee.


Rosemary then thanked all the members who had helped to organise a very enjoyable evening with a special  thanks to Bar for providing the lovely table decorations which were then raffled off to eight lucky ladies.


Our next meeting is an afternoon visit to Rode Hall on Thursday, 28th September leaving Bosley Chapel car park at 1.15 p.m.
