The band is always grateful for your support...
Keeping the band running year on year is a challenge. Although we have a modest income from player subscriptions and the fees we receive from engagements, we are reliant on the valued financial support we get from various parts of the community such as grants and donations as well as practical assistance. In return we are committed to serving the community by playing at community events and providing opportunities for players to develop as musicians in our Junior and Senior bands.
Costs that the band have to fund include:
- Instrument and accessories replacement and repair
- Travel costs to contests and events
- Contest and player registration fees
- Band room maintenance
- Band room utilities
- Uniform replacements and repair
