Nottingham Rotary Club are happy to announce
the return of the Long Eaton Silver Prize Band for their 5th Music
and song evening on the Friday the 27th September at 7.30pm in the
Lutterell Hall in West Bridgford.
Under the leadership of Musical Director Sharon Stansfield the LESPB is much in demand for its entertaining concerts including some very talented songsters in the band as well as winning awards among its peers.
Sharon joined the band at the age of 9 sharing a cornet with her brother and went on to become a soloist for some of the leading bands in the region. Finally she rejoined the band in 2000 as musical director.
The band has achieved much success since then qualifying for the national finals in 2002 and becoming the Third Section National Champions in 2006 and first for a woman.
But perhaps the band is most proud of being a genuine community band with 39 players in the Senior Band, a thriving Training Band of 49 players ( from 8 to 86) and a Novice Group band of 10 players that start from age 5 upwards.
Tickets are £10 including refreshments and all proceeds go towards the club’s local good causes including the homeless and drug and alcohol rehabilitation activities. Tickets available from James Thornhill 07803 904786 or Tony Poulter 07758 162784. More information from www.rotaryclubofnottingham.org or our facebook page.

The 8th IFCR World Cricket Festival will be held in Nottingham from Sunday 13th to Saturday 19th July 2014 and will be based at the University of Nottingham. The Festival will use the campus facilities including the brand new Orchard Hotel which is operated by the Devere Hotels Group. Cricket will be played on the university pitches as well as at two outside clubs.
To date approximately 280 Rotarians from six countries around the world have booked in for this Festival.
On Monday 14th July there will be a Rotary Fellowship Evening hosted by members of the Nottingham Rotary Club. Fellow Rotarians and partners, especially those with an interest in cricket, are particularly welcome to join us on this occasion. This will be a buffet function (cost £10), but because of the size of the venue numbers will be limited and entry strictly by ticket only.
