September 2016 News

Firstly the band Supporters Club would like to thank all those who attended their fundraiser on the August Bank Holiday. Also a big thank you to those who helped on the day and donated raffle prizes and cakes. The band would like to acknowledge and show our appreciation to Roger Hunt for all of his efforts in organising the event and the Supporters club for their continued support at band events.

As always, September is a busy month for the band. We are very much looking forward to playing at The Bretforton Show at the Manor on Saturday 10th September and at Throckmorton Village Fete at 1.15pm the day after.

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 soon, arriving on Friday 30th September and departing early on Monday 3rd October. We have lots of plans for an enjoyable weekend including a ‘Band Night’ on Saturday 1st October. This will take place in a marquee on the recreation ground from 6.00pm and will feature concerts from our band, Musikkappelle Lohreith and some other local bands including Avonbank and Alcester Victoria Silver Band. Entry is free to the public and there will also be a pig roast, we hope to see lots of you there for what promises to be a very enjoyable evening.
