    What would you have to do to get a MBE for services to brass bands, is it just, playing for a long time and playing with lots of bands, or doing something special for the movement?

    Congrats rob

    "Awarded for achievement or service in and to the community of a responsible kind which is outstanding in its field; or very local 'hands-on' service which stands out as an example to others. In both cases awards illuminate areas of dedicated service which merit public recognition."
