Helping other local organisations

The band has been busy since returning from the summer break. Two concerts held in our band room, the first one on 29th September to raise funds for the 1st Dinting Scouts, the second a fortnight later to raise funds for St Mary's RC church. Both nights saw a full house with both the band and audience having a very enjoyable evening of entertainment and potato pie supper.

The concert for St Mary's was directed by Jim Cant (one of, if not the most successful conductor in the band's recent history). Jim has been associated with the band most of his life and conducted the band throughout the 1990's when the band achieved a record number of consecutive competition victories, racing up through the sections and eventually securing championship section status.

The band are looking forward to further work with Jim throughout the Christmas period.
