Rainford Band are pleased to welcome Tara Hardman to the band. Tara joins the band on solo horn having previously played with The Leyland Band for the last four and a half years. Commenting on the new signing, MD Neil Samuel told 4BR: "To be able to welcome a player of Tara's calibre is fantastic! She has played on every major contest stage and as a result brings with her a wealth of experience that is sure to benefit the band. After being placed 3rd at the NW area in the 1st section I think that this signing shows the serious intent of where the band wants to be.". Ex Wire Brass solo baritone Adam Banks will fill the 2nd baritone chair left vacant by Liz Tweedles departure to Haydock Band.
