The group was established in 2016 by three Lostock Gralam residents with the group steadily increasing in size and confidence since. The group play the Ukulele for free and any amounts raised are donated towards patient care at St Luke’s Hospice in Winsford. They have performed at Ukulele Festivals and plucked strings all over Cheshire, visiting organisations from Hoylake to Nantwich and Lymm, as well as several in Mid-Cheshire.

Oyez Sandbach U3A

Date: 05/08/2024
Time: 10:00 - 11:30
Location: Sandbach Town Hall
The city of Chester is the only place in Britain to have retained the tradition of regular midday proclamations at a fixed place and time. Located at the pedestrianised intersection of the four main streets of Chester, the High Cross has been the site of proclamations since the Middle Ages. As one writer has said, “At the Cross we are upon ground hallowed by as long a succession of civic incidents as any spot in our kingdom.” Chester’s Town Criers, David and Julie Mitchell, have been appointed to continue the tradition of historic proclamations from the Cross. The crowds that gather at the heart of this popular tourist destination are drawn from many nations, which is why the Town Crier greets visitors in as many as fifteen languages.
In pre-industrial Britain the town crier played an indispensable role in everyday life. If your horse strayed, your apprentice absconded, or your child went missing, it was the neighbourhood proclaimer who broadcast the loss and appealed for their return. When pigs came to market, or an unexpectedly large catch of fish arrived in harbour, the local handbell-ringer announced the good news.
Join us for a presentation by David Mitchell in his full regalia, not sure if he will need a microphone!
