Thank you to everyone who supported the band in 2017, especially all of our generous corporate, business and personal patrons. It was another successful year for the band, and we are already looking forward to upcoming events this year.
At our Christmas concert, two important awards were presented:
The Bill Bigley award is presented every year at this concert, and is voted for by the members of the band. For the second year running this was deservedly awarded to Janet Clegg. Janet is a member of the committee and also works hard with the junior band, as well as organising the music library!
A special award was presented to Andrew Fordham by the Longridge Council. Andrew has completed 40 years’ service with the band, and has marched on every Remembrance parade, not missing a single one in 40 years. A fantastic achievement, and commitment.
