On the 18th May 2014, Hawk Green Band finally celebrated the opening of their new band room at the Memorial Park in Marple.
The Charles Ingham Bandroom Fund was formed in honour of Charlie Ingham who was a passionate supporter of Marple’s bands. Charlie died in 1985 after a lifetime’s devotion to Marple’s bands. It was Charlie’s dream that the bands would one day have their own home. Charlie’s dream has now become reality and was celebrated with an opening Gala concert with both Hawk Green and Marple Bands performing in the Park to a large audience.
