June is always a busy month for the band. We are leading the parade at Scuttlebrook Wake on Saturday 4th, The Open Air Church Service in the Cross on Sunday 5th, 7pm and this year we have been asked to play at the Crown Meadow after the Evesham Carnival on 25th June.

As you may know we have a twinning association with a band from Bavaria, Germany since 1981, called Musikkappelle Lohreith. This band is visiting Bretforton later this year, arriving on Friday 30th September and departing early on Monday 3rd October. We are looking for hosts who could provide a bed and breakfast for members of Musikkappelle Lohreith. We have lots of plans for an enjoyable weekend which hosts are most welcome to. If you are able to host or would like more information please email me or speak to a band member.
