The sound of strumming is set to come from a Preston pub once more.

Ukulele players are taking over the Guild Ale House as they resume their monthly meetup.

Their regular venue closed down but now councillor Martn Rawlinson, one of the team behind the Preston Ukulele Strummers Society, says it is time to resume it.

The Ukulele is forever associated with Lancashire thanks to George Formby.

Cllr Rawlinson said: “The ukulele is a social instrument and groups have sprung up across the country. Group meetings are a great opportunity to meet old and new friends, pick up the basics of the instrument or improve on your existing skills. All levels of players are welcome at PUSS.

“In the past, we have put our skills to great use making a Christmas video and busking for local homeless charities. We hope to do more activities in the future but these are purely optional for members…performing is not everyone’s cup of tea.”

They are meeting at the Lancashire Road pub on Sunday 2 October from 6pm.

There’s a Facebook page which has been restarted for those who are interested.
