Rain doesn't stop a Party!

Vernon Building Society (Poynton) Brass Band was one of the headline acts at last Saturday's Party in the Park at Poynton. This year the event also featured the award-winning tribute band Want U Back: Take That, whose mix of great singing, quick costume changes and breath-taking dance moves got the crowds into the party mood; the X-Factor & Eurovision performer Andy Abraham with his renditions of classic soul tracks; and not forgetting the charismatic compare Leroy Lurve!

Many thanks must go to Poynton Rotary Club who have made this event happen for the last 7 years, raising much needed money for charity, but of course the biggest ‘Thanks’ must go to the audience of 2000+ people who braved the weather and were still there at the end, in a huge deluge of rain, singing along to Rule Britannia as the band played Fantasia on British Sea Songs with all the evening's performers joining in on stage to finish off the evening with a rousing climax.

Hopefully we'll see you there next year!
