Brass & Abba

More than 3,000 people attending, Poynton Rotary Club's Brass & Abba concert at Poynton Park was a tremendous success.

The annual open air concert this year attracted more people than ever before – and brought in a massive income.

Takings topped £36,000 – a record – and when all the bills are paid it should leave around £16,000 to go to key charities, which have not yet been named.

Good weather contributed to the success of the event, as well as some exceptional performers.

Top of the bill was Abba Reunion. Supporting them were Adlington residents Tricia Penrose of Heart Beat fame and her partner Mark Simpson. Some of their songs were accompanied by a choir of pupils from Lower Park School.

Tricia and Mark have already promised to take part in next year's concert, and said that on that occasion they intend to ensure that school supporters are specially dressed to suit the occasion.

As expected, Vernon Poynton Brass Band gave their usual prize winning performance and kept the whole crowd waving their arms and tapping their feet.
