Due to County Council consultation on road closure policy and charges it is with regret that the Band will not be holding its annual carnival this year. The decision was taken as under the consultation the cost of holding the event would have far outweighed the returns.
It is however pleasing to note that they have amended the original proposals whereby we will be exempt from the charges and will therefore proceed with plans for 2014.
With the absence of the carnival we will be holding the opening of the new band HQ on 6 July from 12pm. (see gigs and events for details)
The annual fun day is being held in the field adjacent to the new bandroom on 14 July, full details will be announced shortly.
