December is always a busy year for the band, but often one of the most enjoyable too, especially when all the hard efforts pay off the following year due to the money the band has raised. In addition to the caroling in supermarkets, other festive performances such as light switch-on’s, carol concerts (both in the warmth and in the cold) and even performances for the BBC Radio Merseyside Carol Concert, have allowed us to keep improving the band and our facilities for the year ahead. This was all topped at the band’s Christmas Concert held at Garswood Labour Club, were band members and supporters alike celebrated the hard efforts the band has put in throughout 2017.
We have just held our fantastic 25th anniversary concert of the band at St. Helens Town Hall. Many families and supports of the band thoroughly enjoyed the concert, in addition to the parents of pupils at both St Cuthbert’s and Lyme Primary.
