More news from Wolverton Town Band
Wolverton Town Band held two concerts in 2014, one at the Old Bath House Community Centre in April and the most recent being the Christmas charity concert and sing-along in Wolverton’s St George’s Church in December. Both raised money for two local charities.
Recently, a cheque for £170 was presented to Crystal Brockwell for Mind (the mental health charity) - in memory of her brother, Jamie Brockwell. The presentation also included Casey Walker (band member and brother of both Jamie and Crystal) and Debbie Walker (band member and mother of Jamie, Crystal and Casey).
Casey is Wolverton Town Band’s youngest member (12 years old). He made his concert debut at the Christmas concert on drums and percussion having moved from cornet and taken up drums just six weeks previously.
The two concerts also raised money for The Suki Woodland Memorial Trust.
Wolverton Town Band is interested in hearing from anyone who would like to play a brass instrument, whether they're a learner or someone with lots of experience. The band has a long and proud history going back over 100 years. Today, it is a friendly group of players who love playing music and want to keep the brass band tradition alive in Wolverton.
New members of any standard are always welcome. Rehearsals include a session each week for learners and anyone else who would like to join in. Membership is free and more information is available on the band's website at: http://www.wolvertontownband.org.uk/joinusitsfree.htm
