    A big thank you to the Grimethorpe Colliery Band!

    This week, members of the Grimethorpe Band have travelled many miles to come to the Dobcross Band Club to offer their expertise and support to the Dobcross Youth Band.
    Many of the players from Grimethorpe covered sectionals from all areas of the band, offering tuition, support and advice on John Gollands Prelude, Song and Dance.
    Grimethorpe then stayed for the duration of the evening to offer further support to the players as the band rehearsed.

    We all hear and know how busy the Grimethorpe Band are but it often goes unheard the amount of support and opportunities they offer to the young brass players of the future :clap:

    The band had a fantastic evening and are extremely grateful!

    Special thanks to,

    Garrath Beckwith
    Jamie Cooper
    Michael Wells
    Andrew Lockett
    Joey Williams

    The players all send their best wishes and look forward to working with the band again very soon :D

    Agreed. The experience and knowledge that players from bands like Grimey have is invaluable, and it's highly commendable they took the time to pass on some of their accumulated wisdom.

    Good on 'em.

    Fantastic links that have been forged between Dobcross and ourselves! Great night down at the band club. Enjoyed listening to the band after the sectionals too and of course the sausage rolls!!! Cheers Jim!

    We did try such a system for a while but found it was being abused and the feeling was that it should not be continued
