The band is very pleased to have been awarded a grant of £3170 from the Midlands Coop Community fund for the purchase of new chairs.
On hearing the news of the award, Ian Wildgoose, the Band Secretary said:
"Bakewell Band are delighted and very grateful to have received the award. The money will be used to purchase new chairs for the Bakewell Scout Headquarters, the Brigade Hall.
This multi-function building has been the home of the band for over 90 years thanks to the generosity of the Scouts. The new chairs will replace the current ones which are in desperate need of replacement. All users of the hall will benefit. But for the band players, it is especially beneficial, as the new chairs will improve the posture of our players, something which is an extremely important element of brass playing."
