Vodafone Community Connection Award Goes to Band! 15 NOVEMBER 2015

The group was astounded but delighted to find out that they had won the recent Vodafone Community Connection Award.

The money means that we are now definitely able to go ahead with our marching band project with this funding going towards instruments for the Band.

The group were selected after Vodafone called for nominations for the award in conjunction with the Bradley Stoke Journal. The eventual aim of the Marching Band Project is to have our own Band leading the November Remembrance parades.

The announcement was made in the November issue of the Bradley Stoke Journal with the Vodafone staff (Ajit Deb, Sophie Merritt) and Scout Representatives (Richard Shepherd, Joy Harrison and Katherine Robinson) getting themselves in the picture taken by Editor Stephen Horton.

We would very much like to thank Vodaphone and the Bradley Stoke Journal for this generous award that now means we can offer a new musical opportunity to our young people. We are very fortunate to have two professional music teachers in our leadership team – Richard Shepherd and Glen Mills who will be taking the lead with the project and we have been offered invaluable help and advice from the wonderful 37th Kingswood Drum corps. Band practice is planning to start in January 2016 and we are looking forward to showing the community what we have achieved next November.
