RockPipes – described as ‘a Celtic rock band with a difference’ – will make its Tytherington parish church debut in September with sponsorship from Cotswold Homes Ltd, which is constructing new homes in the village.
The group of local professional musicians typically play a mix of rock classics from Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Abba and Coldplay to traditional Scottish and Celtic numbers. Their programme at St James Church will be adapted to match the make-up and mood of the audience.
‘This will be a night to remember,’ predicts the event organiser Roger Bellis, who says the church is keen to be known as a community concert venue as well as holding church services.
Visitors to Chipping Sodbury should find there's now more free parking available when driving in to the town.

Yate’s job centre, currently on South Walk at the Shopping Centre, will be moving North in August when it relocates to the former Bottelino's restaurant in North Walk.
Andrew Lowrey, Yate Shopping Centre Manager, says: "The Jobcentre is an important community agency and its presence in North Walk will give them a much-enhanced profile as it is highly visible from Station Road. North Walk is ideal for small or startup businesses and we have been encouraging independent retailers – such as Karizma and CardsNWrap - to take space on North Walk. We are proposing that the former Jobcentre in South Walk be converted into flats to meet local residential demand."
Jobcentre Plus is a government agency and part of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), supporting local people of working age from welfare into work, and helping employers fill vacancies.
