Absolutely chuffed to bits with our nomination for the Newcomer of the Year award! We're up against stiff opposition, but if you'd like to help us get this award please follow the link and vote for Fodens! :clap: http://www.4barsrest.com/articles/2011/1286c.asp 4barsrest quote Foden’s Solo & Quartet Competition Not often top level brass bands decide to really invest in grass roots banding, but Foden’s is leading the way – especially with this new solo & quartet competition in their home town of Sandbach. The format may have been traditional, but the link to local businesses (including the chance to have a spin in a top of the range Audi sports car), the sense of inclusiveness and constructive competition was the key to its undoubted success. A foundation stone was laid on which a major event can be built.
