    Hi all,

    I'm trying to pull together a record of Sidmouth Town Band's historical contest results as part of a project to celebrate our 150th anniversary, and was wondering whether anyone would be able to fill in any of the gaps? There are several contests I know that the band entered, but don't know the section, test piece and/or result (I can't find information on brassbandresults.co.uk, 4barsrest or elsewhere on the internet). It's mostly SWBBA contests, but also a couple of area contests and national finals. If anyone is able to fill in even one or two gaps it would really help!

    Thanks - but yes, I've already filled in all the gaps I could from there - the list above is all the remaining results I couldn't find out. I'm not really holding out too much hope for finding some of them.... but as a list of the band's historical contests results is going to be published in our 150th anniversary book, I want to make sure that it's as complete as possible! Hopefully somebody might know about the nationals at least.

    to see if they can help.
