    :biggrin: Hi can anyone help,

    A new brass band has been setup in the village of South Kirkby West Yorkshire.To get to the point we are in need of music hymn books ect.A donation or short term loan of any music for new band would be helpful.If any bandsman/woman can offer any help it would be recieved with great thanks.As you may understand that any new band has to start from the begining but I do feel that this is a perfect opportunity to make sure that the banding culture and enjoyment is passed on to the next generation of young adults within the community.Thankyou for read this post and help would be very much appreciated.

    Many thanks for that offer Roy - I will no doubt take this offer up in the future. I live just down the road from you in Shafton.

    Very best of luck. It's so good to hear of bands starting up rather than folding up.

    I'll happily donate any piece from the Dragon Music catalogue. Please have a look and let me know.

    We had the same problem three years ago when we set up a new band in Bude.

    Good luck with the venture, I will PM you with our experiences.

    Best of Luck
