Playing for Don Evans the Lancashire town crier as a surprise for his 80th Birthday. Saturday 7th April.
Band room looking good after a weekend of work, painting the outside, gardening and sorting out old music. A great big thank you to all who put the effort in.
Congratulations to our 6 players who received long service awards today. Gordon Hatton, Colin Knowles, Alan Penk, Evan Mawdsley and Dave Lyon all received medals for 60 years service. Bass player Dave Lyon has spent all of this time committed to one band. Ste Gordon received a certificate of service for 25 years. We congratulate them all on their great achievements
A great result for our principal cornet James Ball, winning the "best soloist" award at the Brass at the Guild contest 2018. The band were placed 5th.
Changes in personnel
Sadly Rhiana Blakely Travis has decided to leave the Band due to work commitments at university. We wish her well for the future.
