News from St Breward Silver Band

” After almost a 10 year absence from the contesting scene, the ST BREWARD SILVER BAND took part yesterday in the South West Brass Band Championships at The Riviera International Centre at Torquay.

We were playing in the fourth section as an “ungraded band ” but up against other bands from the South West

When the results were announced, we won the ” best  ungraded band ” award AND placed 2nd overall. What a great result for all concerned, even more so for Tom Howard – our Musical Director – as it was his very first contest in which he was a conductor. All band members are extremely happy and surprised with the result too!

What next you may ask ? Many questions will need to be asked before we committ to another such event going forward More info from Band Secretary Mike Rowe 01208 73655 mkrowe@hotmail.co.uhttps://www.stbrewardsilverband.org/

Christmas is coming!!!

Never too early to think about Christmas and the Christmas Lights Group are already busy with the plans for this Christmas

For the last few years the Silver Band have kindly looked after the organising of the Christmas Lights but with increasing commitments they have handed over to a new team

The Switching on of the Christmas Lights will be on Sunday 1  December about 6.30pm, but first we need to raise some money; every year lights need replacing and money is needed to keep them burning bright, also the Switching on of the Lights needs funding, mince pies, hot chocolate mulled wine and so on

The Christmas Lights Group are holding a Quiz at The Old Inn on Friday evening 11 October and a Coffee Morning in the Band Room on Saturday 9 November
