Car parking change: use the school car park behind the school – entrance at left-hand side of the school (nearest to the South Circular Road). Upon arrival, press the access button and the gate will be opened. The spaces immediately in front of the school should be left for those with heavy instruments or experiencing mobility difficulties.
Please try to avoid using the neighbouring streets since local residents cannot park in the evenings when all on-street places are taken-up by those visiting the school.

parts: a message from the librarians
This is how the librarians try to ensure that
parts are available each week for players and don't get lost:
leaving and rejoining the orchestra
Sometimes members are unable to take part in the orchestra for a period of time but would like to return in the future. If you find yourself in this situation you should inform your section leader, or the Secretary, as soon as possible so that alternative arrangements can be made.
