George Badland and Derek Woolf took on the task of constructing six large and six small portable risers for use by the Chorus on those occasions when our standard risers could not be transported to sing-outs.
Derek's garage was turned into a workshop and the 'Badland & Woolf Company'' sprang into production, completing the risers in record time. Unlike the famous product of shipyard 'Harland & Wolfe' it's hoped that the new risers will have a slightly longer shelf life!
Sturdy and collapsible, the risers fit handily into car boots and will allow volunteers from among our members to take charge of individual risers.Back to top of page
