It's not that we're obsessed with Whit Friday or anything, but we HAVE kept this cutting from the Oldham Chronicle (Official) since 2008 and we DO think it's handy to know when Whit Friday is until 2034....

Dobcross Youth Band added 59 new photos to the album: Summer Concert 2017 — at Dobcross Band Club.

A gallery of photos from the brilliant summer concert, with great performances from the beginners, intermediate and youth bands and some very special presentations. It was lovely to have so many of our talented and dedicated players given special recognition. In no particular order - Julian Bayley, principal euphonium, was awarded the Chairman's prize for his fantastic playing, helping the younger ones and always putting in that extra bit of effort. Ben Hill-Wilson, who plays tenor horn, was awarded the Committee's prize, voted for by the youth band members as well as the committee. Ben is an exceptionally kind young man who dedicates a lot of time to helping out generally and the younger players in particular. Cornet player Emily Mallinson was Youth Band Player of the Month for June for all her hard work and great playing. Amelie Popplewell was Intermediate Band Player of the Month for the extra effort she's put in and the improvement it's brought. Three of our senior players are moving on to university this summer so we said a fond farewell to Tomas Leadbeater, Sam Hill-Wilson and Daniel Prickett. Tomas and Sam said goodbye in a very memorable way with a hugely entertaining version of The Elephant - complete with elephant suits, a pink tutu for dancer Tomas and a very funny dance routine. We also said goodbye and good luck to Reece Furniss, whose work commitments mean he's had to step down from the band and his role as principal cornet. Many thanks to Matt, Mel and all the musicians for a great night and to everyone who bought and sold raffle tickets, especially our star saleswomen Julie Guttridge and Lindsey Rankin.
