Springing into Summer!Image may contain: 3 people, crowd and outdoor

Under the ever watchful eye of  Jack Smith the band continues to grow and develop and ex players have come back to join us and people moving to the area have ‘come along for a blow’ and have stayed.

Our new summer programme contains some old favourites but also many new arrangements including ones from our own conductor. We hope there is something for everyone as we play marches, film music, music from years gone by and some sing along or even clap along ones just for good measure.

The band are always keen to welcome new members who wish to double up on positions and due to the talents within the band we have several players who would move position should the right person come along.

Only rehearsing once a week means it is not a major commitment and with a sensible events programme, players manage to slot playing in the band into their hectic lives. From school students to decorators and HGV drivers to Health Care professionals, the band  is made up of a range of players of different ages and abilities but who all work together to promote live music at local events. Like with many local lower section bands, some of our players also play with other bands and this helps develop the friendships between local bands and also means bands help each other out when they are short of players for concerts. Some of our players even went to France with a local band to help out a year or so ago! We are always keen to welcome new players and ex members alike  and anyone thinking of joining us – please contact our secretary via the contact us page.
