Verwood Concert Brass Band strikes up for charity
VERWOOD Concert Brass's heritage dates back 149 years to 1864 when it was known as the Verwood Temperance Band.
Members of the band are therefore looking forward to celebrating the 150th anniversary next year – although it is unlikely to be emulating its roots by being a totally temperate affair.
For many years Verwood Concert Brass has recognised the value of nurturing new players through running a training band but by 2009 it was apparent that a growing membership, which now stands at 80-plus, meant a second main band could be formed.
This is the Verwood Concert Brass B Band, which will be performing a charity concert in aid of St Mary's Church, West Moors, next Saturday (19th) at 7.30pm in West Moors Memorial Hall
