The annual dinner and prize presentation for 2015 was held at Palace Hotel, Douglas on Saturday 21st November. The majority of band members were present and the gathering included the Band President, Edwin Cubbon, Band Patron Noel Cringle and Mr Jim Crebbin from Rushen Silver Band. Friends and supporters were also present.

The evening was organised by Band Treasurer, Arthur Christmas, who did a sterling job ensuring everything ran smoothly. Everyone had a throughly good time and the rare opportunity to relax and chat.

 

The Band Secretary, Simon Court, outlined the years engagements, which total around 50 to date, and he pointed out that once Christmas is taken into the equation the number will be considerably greater. The band members and Musical Director were thanked for their commitment.
