We are very proud of the our Solo Trombone player Heidi Bradley for being afforded national recognition from the NSPCC and Brass Band England for her BandSafe initiative.
Heidi conceived the idea through her professional work with Athletic Clubs throughout the Country who train and coach young people. Becoming aware of possible issues and identifying similarities with the Brass Band movement, she drew up and produced a policy and guidelines that have been adopted by Brass Band England to safeguard bands and young players. Over 300 bands around the country have signed up to compliance.
The NSPCC invited Heidi to do a presentation to over 200 delegates who deemed her work an excellent example of good practise in the protection of young people generally, and the Brass Band movement specifically.
Well done Heidi!!
Armistice 100 The band's "Armistice 100" show takes place tonight at The Grimsby Central Hall, you can get tickets at the door. This wonderful show has been specially written and directed by Brian Harper to commemorate the end of the Great War. The local history, fun and music make this an event not to be missed. There won't be a dry eye when the Last Post sounds from Bob Sutton's cornet.
Welcome to the band James, hope you enjoy playing with us. Many thanks to Neil for helping us out and congratulations to Banovallum. Great to see the bass section filled.
The band will be supporting the ABP Coastal Half Marthon on Sunday 16th morning, playing on the promenade. Enjoy the music as the runners pass and give us a wave!
