It was nearly a full house at St Peters Church Horbury for the "Songs of Praise" concert held at 6pm on Sunday 4th July.
The Band played a varied programme of hymns for the audience to sing to which included Abide With Me, Stand Up Stand Up For Jesus and of course the old favourite Onward Christian Soldiers. A short synopsis of each hymn was given to the audience by Father Brian, the vicar of St Peters.
Before the Band played their final item, the March "Marching Onwards", Band secretary Arnold Tattersfield, spoke to the audience about the Bands new music stand banners. The banners were being used for the first time and had been donated by Shirley Sedgwick and her daughters Jenny and Laura in memory of her husband and their father Bruce. Arnold went on to say that Bruce had been a good friend and "Mate" to the Band and would always be remembered. The audience and the Band were then asked to give a round of applause in Bruce's memory.
Refreshments were served at the end of the concert during which time the Band their own words of praise from members of the audience.
A collection of £138 was given to the Band.
