  1. Hi, just a message to say what a great day at the Rose & Crown yesterday. Jenn did a fantastic job in organising everything on the day. We all played outdoors in lovely weather. Thanks to everyone who came & supported the day. Hope all players had a great time. Thank you for including our band.
