It's back to basics for Horbury Band after a very hectic summer. After playing at events which included weddings at Bretton Hall, Galas, Parades with the Archbishop of York, Horbury Show, Wakefield Cathedral, The Hepworth Art Gallery and many others it's now time to concentrate on what the organisation feel they do best "training youngsters".
But this can only be achieved if youngsters appear and an appeal has gone out to recruit young people to come along to the Band room and have a go at learning to play a brass instrument. Tom Greatorex is the man at the helm of youth at the Band. Head of music at Kettlethorpe High School Tom has been with the Band 33 years and his achievements with the Band are second to none.
Any youngster wishing to come along should contact Band Secretary Arnold Tattersfield on 01924 629109  email This email address is being protected from spambots.
