●● A GROUP of mu­si­cian friends are plan­ning to launch a new live mu­sic night.

New band The Teggs Nose Pickas, which are named in hon­our of the lo­cal land­mark, are the or­gan­is­ers of new acous­tic events set to take place at the St Dun­stan Inn pub in Langley later this year.

Mu­sic will in­clude a mix of Amer­i­cana, blue­grass, coun­try and folk songs.

Teggs Nose Pickas’ dou­ble bass player, Steve Wright, said: “We have de­cided to start a reg­u­lar acous­tic night as there is vir­tu­ally nowhere lo­cally to play.

“The evening is all about play­ing some good mu­sic and most im­por­tantly, hav­ing fun.

“We know there are plenty of great lo­cal mu­si­cians out there in the com­mu­nity so we would en­cour­age them to come along and join in, as well as per­form­ing some of their own songs.

“Equally any­one who just en­joys a pub with live mu­sic are more than welcome to just turn up on the night.”

The first event is likely to take place in late Septem­ber or early Oc­to­ber, and then each month. ●● DISOBE­DI­ENT dogs will be trained against chas­ing live­stock at an up­com­ing event.

An­i­mal be­haviourist Jez Frith is run­ning one-to-one train­ing ses­sions teach­ing own­ers how to pre­vent their dogs chas­ing live­stock, some­thing which is be­com­ing more of a prob­lem in and around the parish.

Jez says that live­stock chas­ing can be ex­cit­ing for dogs but it is trau­matic for the an­i­mal and has bad fi­nan­cial and emo­tional im­pact for farm­ers.

The ses­sions will take place at Sut­ton Hall Farm on Satur­day, Septem­ber 19.

To learn more about the ses­sions or to book con­tact jez. frith@bt­in­ter­ or call 07712 134525.

Ad­vance book­ing is re­quired on the course.
