Spa Strummers name and identity.
Be aware that there is only one SPA STRUMMERS ukulele group. Another group has used a very similar a name in an attempt to mislead the public, with an obvious attempt to plaguerise our name and thereby gain credibility on the back of all our hard work and reputation we have built up over 7 years. Be aware the the upcoming Whitnash Fun Day programme has misleadingly used 2 of our pictures on the front of their programme.
