The Kippax Band's Christmas concert at the Kippax Band Club took place last night. The Band club was packed and once again the Band delivered a programme which suited all tastes. The Band did however had to endure more MD trouble before the concert took place. Colin Hardy had prepared the Band for the previous week and was due to conduct however he was unfortunately taken ill at the last moment. Fortunately Alan Morrison took up the baton and guided the Band through a successful evening. The concert also saw the yearly presentation of awards. The following awards were given out by Colin Moss (Band Chairman):- 10 year Service Awards- Anita Morrison Tracey Sillito Paul Wilkinson 50 year service award- Keith Fairburn Bandsman of the Year David Jackson Congratulations to all, especially Keith for a magnificent achievement. David Jackson also introduced the first members of the Youth Training group to the audience. The kids were very excited to be there and hopefully enjoyed their first experience of the Band Club. We are sure it wont be long before the give us their first concert there too!
