model answer:

Dear Mr.Daniel,

I am writing on behalf of a group of musicians called The IPA Band; who have been using the community hall for rehearsals. Until recently, they have been using the town hall to practise. However, they were informed by the council secretary that they would no longer be allowed to do so, but were not given any reason why.

The band has an upcoming set of gigs at the local community centre, which would bring in extra revenue for the centres renovation fund, as they have decided to donate all profits from the gigs. If it is a case of changing the days of practice, the group are happy to do so; Fridays and Thursdays would also be suitable for them. I would welcome the chance to discuss the matter further with you.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,
Manager The IPA Band’
