BBC Radio Lancashire

Ukelele Kris, who is leading our ukulele group, will be appearing on BBC Radio Lancashire tomorrow, Friday, between 12:00 and 2:00pm. He will be talking about the boom in popularity of the uke and I think giving the Director General a lesson! The primary focus is on his Preston Ukelele Group but is hoping to get a plug for our group too.


Just a quick reminder that our next ukulele group gathering is at 6:30pm on Monday 10 February. Admission by ukulele only!

We had our first ukulele group gathering on Monday night. There were around 20 of us and the night was a great success.

Next meet up Monday 10 February at 6-30pm, admission strictly by ukulele only.


For those of a more energetic disposition we now meet each Sunday for a game of badminton at Carnforth Leisure. If you would like to join us we are starting at 12 00 this week but please check in future as times vary.
