Unusual request of the year

A visitor at one of our recent concerts heard that we had lots and lots of Basque rain-ponchos that we hand out liberally at raffles. They wondered if we had spares as their budding Brass Band were looking for some in case it rained at the Whit Week Saddleworth Brass Band Festival. We would have been delighted to help, but a review of our stocks found we did not have as many as we thought – only enough for a year’s supply of raffle prizes. But thanks for asking!
