Congratulations to Sam and Mark on thier promotions to Corporal. It is usual to promote members of the band at the annual dinner in April however it was necessary to take this extrodinary step due to the growth of the band. It is a good time for the band. I put this success down to the hard work and dedication of our members. Thank you to you all.

The band was lead today by Pipe Sergeant Varley due to my necessary absence. He was assisted by Pipe Sergeant Gullen. I have had a number of reports back from band members and service personnel and what a fine job they did. I am told that the support from the great people of Mansfield was something to behold. The crowd was packed many people deap all the way down Westgate and into the market. They clapped and cheared all the way as the band drew there attention to the parade with a colection of traditional Scotish marching tunes.
So you didnt think it could be done,, yes it was!. Thank you to Eric form Leicester Branch for sending over this pictoral evidence that we did play on the Howard Brothers Carousel, and it was moving.
