Katey Anderson has been playing cornet for the band for the past year which she was in the working in the area on a work placement. Sadly that work placement came to an end this month and she has had to leave the band. We all wish Katey well for the future and thank her for her contribution to the band during the past year. – Photo below of Christopher Childs BBB MD presenting Katey with a mug (featuring a photo of BBB of course) so that she has something to remember us by.

As a none-contesting band we didn’t do that badly either winning ‘the National Brass Band Championships,’ ‘held at the Albert Hall’, no less than 6 times in one week! Now not many bands can say that!

Many thanks to Mick, Elaine and everyone at Spoken Word Productions for being so kind to us all, looking after us so well and for a really fantastic week!

But as we 'had to have a beer' in each village by the end of the day well...what can you expect? (Standing up was hard enough!) Chris our MD won't let us play Slaidburn any more because we are so good at playing it really really badly!
