Dobcross Youth Band added 6 new photos to the album: Grappenhall 2017 — at St Wilfrid's Church, Grappenhall.
You know how much we love the Whit Friday walk? We do it FOUR times! Today was our final walk of the season, in the lovely village of Grappenhall, playing for St Wilfrid's Church, and the band sounded fabulous again. Thanks again to our guest players, Lindsey, Olivia, Mandy and Alex for joining us. Scarlet, Matthew, Edward, Joe and Anna missed their own school fete to play at this event so a big thanks to them too.

Looking forward to seeing our good friends from the Dobcross Silver Band and the Dobcross Brass Monkeys on Sunday. Both bands did Dobcross proud on Whit Friday and I'm sure Brass on the Grass will be every bit as special.

Dobcross Youth Band added 6 new photos to the album: St Gabriels 2017 — at St Gabriel's Church, Ashton-Under-Lyne.
On a baking hot day the youngsters once again did us proud. We joined our friends St Gabriel's Church, Ashton-Under-Lyne for a short service before the Ashton Walks of Witness. Everyone did fantastically well in the sweltering heat but special thanks go to Mandy Grundy and Alex Bromley from Boarshurst Silver Band for lending a hand, Max, Joe and Oliver on percussion and Amy calling the shots as principal cornet. It was also great to join with Mossley Band to play the National Anthem at the end of the joint service. Really well done everyone.

Looking forward to joining our friends St Gabriel's Church, Ashton-Under-Lyne for their Whit Walk this afternoon. It's a beautiful day to play outdoors and they always make the band feel really welcome. All welcome to come and join the procession - there's a short service at 1.30pm before the walk which culminates at St Michael's (Ashton Parish Church) for the joint service.

Congratulations to Ben, May's Intermediate Band player of the month. Bass players don't often get the chance to do solos but bands would be lost without them and Ben's fantastic, steady playing is a real asset to the band. Once again, his prize bag of chocolates headed in mum's direction!
