ASCOT BRASS | THE FUTURE

Ascot Brass a 30 piece concert Brass Band, who are now in their 14th successful year, we are a registered charity and perform many concerts for good causes. However, the band members have agreed it is time we should be putting on our own concert, with selected soloists, and excellent choirs, so we are exploring the best method of seeking a single sponsor or a number of sponsors. Naturally, maximum exposure would be in evidence at each concert.

Any individuals, or companies that enjoy the sound of a good brass band, and can help us in our objective, please email malcolm@surefootservices.co.uk <mailto:malcolm@surefootservices.co.uk

To discuss its potential.

The Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) is one of 47 Wildlife Trusts working across the UK to achieve the shared aim of securing a better future for wildlife.

BBOWT was founded in 1959 (as the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Naturalist Trust -  BBONT) by local ecologists who could see the extent of harm being done to the wonderfully rich natural environment of the three counties. For over 50 years we have worked with local people to make Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire richer in wildlife.

BBOWT currently has about 54,000 members and more than 1,300 active volunteers. It is thanks to our members and volunteers that we are able to keep going - we do not receive any core governmental funding. Our income comes from a range of sources including grants, legacies, business support and charitable trusts donations, but most important of all are our membership subscriptions......

The first Inner Wheel club was founded in Manchester, England in 1924 and clubs have since spread to 103 countries with around 100,000 members worldwide, 13,000 being in Great Britain and Ireland.

The Windsor and Eton Operatic Society can be found at www.windsor-eton-opera.co.uk 

ASCOT ORGAN and KEYBOARD CLUB is a friendly club that meets monthly. It holds a mixture of professional and amateur nights and the occasional charity evening. This not only raises money for good causes, but also promotes the club. The club tries to give younger artistes just starting on the circuit a chance as well as the old favourites. As you will see from our concert diary they have a good selection of top artistes covering many styles of music. Refreshments are included in the entrance fee so why not go along and hear some of the best professional organists play - or just listen to some of the local talent you didn't know existed!
 
Quite a few of our members have their own organs or keyboards. All try to help each other where possible, and encourage each other to play at our amateur evenings, when players can bring along their own instruments (organs by prior arrangement with the Chairman) or play the club organ, a Technics GA1. A light hearted competition is held annually and a cup presented to the most improved player. The club is always glad to welcome amateur players to show off their talents. Their family, friends and all those wishing to have an evening of live music in friendly surroundings are also welcome at all meetings. This includes members of other clubs who are visiting the area.

In July the club holds a summer social with a fish & chip supper and a very relaxed atmosphere. This gives members who have not played before the chance to "have-a-go" with less pressure.
 

The club usually meets on the third Friday of the month at 8pm. Subscription: £10; Concerts: Members admission: £5.00 , Visitors admission: £6.00 . Amateur Nights: Members: £3,  Visitors : £4.

The Kinross Players, play-reading group will meets on the third Sunday, of the month, 6-9.30pm, at Constables, Windsor Road, Ascot, SL5 7LF. It is a warm, relaxing evening with drinks and nibbles.
