Ukulele – June meetings

We’ve played through a number of different song styles recently, including some Pop songs, some Gospel and some Rock ‘n’ Roll.  We’ve even had a go at Elton John’s ‘Crocodile Rock’, would you believe.  Additionally, as ‘Strictly Ukuleles’, we performed two concerts in June, so we’ve been busy. Have Uke, be happy!!  David Evans.

Local History – June meeting

On Tuesday 20th June, thirty-one members of the Local History group thoroughly enjoyed a very interesting talk on the history of the Co-Operative Society.  It is amazing to think that, from the original meeting of a few business men in Rochdale in the late 19th Century, the Society now flourishes in all corners of the […]
