    Not allowed

    Westoe were planning to attend the Borders Contest to give an airing to some of our Annual Sponsors Concert Programme 15th Nov at the Customs House, South Shields. We've known about the Contest for years but never got round to entering. Contest Secretary sent for the Application Form only to discover that we're now ineligible having just been promoted to Championship Section. Shame we can't enter unless we get relegated.
    p.s. checkout the new e-commerce web site I've just added Brass Band Aid / Band casual clothing to.

  14. Well done to all! Was another good day in the Borders - made even better with a fantastic result for us on our first day back into 2nd section. Very chuffed with our result oh, and best bass section (we will never hear the end of it now!) :D

    A good bass section always relies on a good percussion section :wink:

    Do you really mean "Relies" or should it have read "Lies" ?
    I must admit it's good when they're "Giving it some stick"
