Remembrance - 2022

The band had a busy Remembrance weekend taking part in a number of services 

11th November - Preston Bissett and Swinderby Remembrance Services

13th November - Winslow RBL Remembrance Parade and Great Horwood Remembrance Service

It's always an privilege to be involved

 

The highlight of the weekend for most was welcoming our Bass Trombone player, Colin Nicholls, back in to the front row of Winslow's parade following an enforced break due to Parkinson's

As you can see from the pictures below Colin took pride of place in his wheelchair being helped on the day by

Pilot Officer Andreas Hofmann from Winslow CCF, a very emotional and long awaited return.

The band would like to thank Winslow RBL and Pilot Officer Hofmann for their help in enabling Colin

to take part in the event

Platinum Jubilee

Thank you to every that attended the Platinum Jubilee Beacon Lighting Event on Great Horwood Village on Thursday 2nd June 2022

The band performed a varied programme throughout the evening with the finale being the sounding the specially commissioned fanfare 'Majesty' followed by the National Anthem as the Beacon was lit.

It was an honour to be part of the evening that was so well supported by the village.
