The efforts of 'bannisa' are to be admired, apparently Grimethorpe have never sacked anyone and they all live in a world milk and honey! Why can't we have some honesty on these pages even if it's just 'mind your own business. it's nowt' to do with you!' September is a long time off so I must...

It's 25 years since Black Dyke completed their clean sweep of contests in 1985. BBC Band of the Year, Yorkshire Area, European, Open and Nationals.
