Wind Band rehearsals are running as usual at Lady Manners' school this Friday (24 November) but, due to the school production of Oliver! will be in the Vocational Centre, 6th form area and Drama room. School staff will be able to direct players to these areas. Parking may be more difficult than usual so you may wish to allow more time for this.
PDMC have teamed up with local photographers Phil Sproson Photography to offer PDMC members and supporters to chance to buy 2018 calendars featuring photographs of the breathtaking Peak District countryside. Phil Sproson Photography will make a generous donation to PDMC for every calendar purchased via PDMC. Why not buy some as Christmas presents for family and friends!
