Congratulations to Bill Roscoe

Congratulations to Bill Roscoe on 69 years service to brass banding. Seen here receiving a well deserved diamond service award from the Brass Band Association during the concert at Trinity Church Farnworth.

Thank You Arthur

Arthur Worrall, percussionist and long time loyal servant of the band has decided to hang up his sticks. His ingenuity in constructing equipment, including building additional tubular bells, is highly renowned. He will continue to be involved with the band and his advice will still be relied on. Below our Chairman, Jonny Earl, presents Arthur with a picture of the band at Cheltenham.
