More for the weekend incl. a big one

Imagine a summer's day on which millions of us, throughout the UK, sit down to have lunch together, with our neighbours in the middle of our streets, and on every patch of common ground. The food, entertainment and decorations we will have either grown, cooked, or created ourselves. This will be a day to break bread with our neighbours, to put a smile on Britain's face.It's the big lunch. It's this Sunday so have have a look at to find your nearest one in Macc. In this spirit why not take a picnic to South Park and be entertained by the KEMS choir in the bandstand Sunday 2-4pm?

Truly unmissable on Saturday 18th are the wonderful Butterfly Jam who are playing their unique bassy soul at the Old Millstone.See previous posting on Wed 17 June for band info..

Sunday sees Jodrell bank marking Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's first walk on the Moon on 21 July 1969. Join them (not Neil & Buzz!) on the day to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Moon landing with a day of talks and activities. During the afternoon they will be sending selected voice messages as radio transmissions to the Moon, bouncing them off its surface and catching their returning echoes with the Lovell Telescope!

Friday night has an Elvis tribute at Gawsworth. Will it be Michael next year?
