The Silver Band once again took part in the North West Regional Brass Band finals in late February. When Grenville took over the reins in September of last year one of our key objectives in rebuilding was to ensure that the band would be able to compete and enjoy the Winter Gardens experience. By February we had assembled a new group: a talented mix of new and experienced players to take the Band forward. Rehearsals of the Test Piece ‘Darkwood’ were lively and challenging and the players were brilliant throughout.
Our placing on the day of 14th was a creditable result and a good base for future development. A coach filled with a happy band made its way back into Dobcross at the end of a wonderful (if long) day. We now can’t wait for next year!
