Not a very good start to the new year me thinks! Some time over the past 2 or 3 days the Knottingley Silver Band has had their band room broken in to and quite a few instruments taken. Quite a few of the instruments are only a couple of years old due to a lottery grant, some of these included a BBb bass, Euph, several Trombones and cornets and a photocopier. The police have found one Euph abandoned at the side of the road several miles away. If any one is offered or hears anything with respect to cheap instruments being sold or offered please either let the police know or contact me through the PM. Thank you. Paddo.
