Ukulele playing is something that many in our church congregation love to do. It is a fun and inclusive musical activity, and we aspire to hold neighbourhood ukulele sessions in the new building. We were blown away to be contacted by a local band ‘The Dukes of Uke’ who are based in Biggar and are phenomenally good. The Dukes offered to lay on a concert for us to help us with our fundraising for the new building. Little did we know what a treat was in store for the crowd who gathered together in the Burgh Hall to hear ballads, pop hits and classics played with aplomb and with much witty banter to boot! Thanks, Dukes, for your kindness and for your creativity. This event raised £1150 for our project funds.
