Some of the ladies and gents enjoyed attending a wonderful evening of entertainment by the Greater Manchester Police band on Saturday 17th June at Rochdale Masonic Hall.

The GMP band started the evening entertainment with music played from around the 18th century and then the conductor gave a brief history of the band. He explained that most of the music on the evening some people might have heard from Disney films. At the interval everyone enjoyed a lovely Beef lasagne, salad and chips followed by the Raffle, the lucky winners enjoyed the prizes of wine and chocolates.

The event raised a total of £1,000 with a small donation from the social committee for the EL Festival 2026.
