Equipment or resources we need

We are looking to replace some of our instruments, such as drums and kazoos.

Organised by Susan Metcalf

The band was founded by my mom in 1961 and I joined when I was 3 years old.

I have marched in the band over the many years and we are celebrating the band's 60th birthday next year.

I am now Secretary of the band and feel so proud to be part of something that I have grown up with.
