Whit Friday 2016

Well Whit Friday is done and dusted and we’re sure everyone wants to do it all over again (despite the wet weather! Boarshurst Band are no different. After a very successful day, starting with the traditional morning services (helped along by our training and beginners bands), we managed to get a total of 9 prizes:

Dobcross – Best Saddleworth
Delph – Best local
Denshaw – Best Saddleworth 
Lees – Won 2nd section and Best OMBC
Grotton – Won 2nd section
Lydgate – 2nd in 2nd section
Greenfield – Won 1st section and Best Saddleworth

Hard work during rehearsals and, of course the drive and tenacity of the MD, James Garlick, ensured that the band put in a consistent performance throughout the event and brought home some great wins.
