Happy New Year!

Well, the first news post of the year, and what a year it has been.  Looking back on 2014, the band has seen some amazing successes.  New players and have arrived, some have left us, but we stand healthy and ready for the challenges of the new year.  This includes – of course – The Torchbearer!  We are all looking forward to the rehearsals ahead of January and competing in March at the Riviera Centre, Torquay.  What would a year in banding be without a day trip to the English Riviera!

So, the new website is launched and I hope that it will be received well in the community and beyond.  It has been designed for ease of use, on both traditional PCs and tablet / smart devices in mind.  If you have any comments / suggestions, please do e-mail me at [email protected].

Other happenings this year include the boiler finally being replaced – we can enjoy warm rehearsals now, as the cold weather comes in.  Thanks to the Hall and Woodhouse fund and Sherborne Rotary for their contributions to this, and also the Sherborne Town Council for their support over the year.

I think the image gallery below sums up the year of 2014 for STB.  The open day was a fantastic success and we are already working on organising the next.  The Youth band have gone from strength to strength and the Music In The Park concerts were better than ever and thoroughly enjoyed by the public.

Thanks once again go to our supporters and sponsors during 2014.  We can’t provide the service we do without these people and, of course, the general public of Sherborne and surrounding areas.

We hope you all had a great Christmas and enjoy a healthy and happy 2015.  We’ll see you in the park or at the Proms!
