This last Friday was the Annual Whit Friday Marches, up at Oldham and Saddleworth.
And our band competed as in previous years.
This year I was on the 3rd Cornet Team and we all played the march, though rotated on the contest march as the rules only allowed two 3rd cornet players.
Our 3rd Cornet Team – Mike, Niamh and me
After a drenching on our first march the weather settled and we played at 9 venues.
Our results placed us ? No Overall Results yet!
Here is a You Tube link to our march and contest playing. [ link]
We came 40th Band here at Grotton – the location that Sue Perkins conducted at in the TV programme?!
