Spectacular Band performance in Meltham by Stephen Tighe

Brass band Spectacular

The sun certainly had it’s hat on for the grand opening of our Meltham practice on Saturday. The village turned out in force to welcome Allegro Optical to Meltham, and with Diggle “B” Band playing we certainly turned a few heads.

Both Sheryl and I joined the band to play some rousing tunes, which had everyone’s  feet tapping along with the music.

All the staff were in attendance including Stephen Haigh our resident optometrist. Stephen, who had his own opticians practice in Almondbury for 20 years, brings quite a fan club to Allegro Optical in Meltham. Many of his clients attended Saturday’s opening, during which we were raising awareness and funds for the Macular Society.

The Macular Society is an organisation which provides practical and emotional support to people with macular disease. The day’s events included a balloon race raffle, raffle and selfie corner. So far we have raised over £120.00 for the charity and we hope to raise much more over the coming year.

We have been delighted by the warm welcome the village has given us and for the support we have received from the local businesses. We look forward to building a long and happy relationship with all the residents of the village and becoming an integral part of village life.
