It was a fun-filled afternoon with all four of our brass band sections performing. The Summer Fayre raised over £1,250, of which £685 was profit from the Grand Draw.

The band would like to thank all the local businesses that donated prizes to the draw, or contributed through advertising in our lucky programme.

Members of the band appreciate the great support that we get from the community.
