Lanner and District Silver Band has started tweeting @Lanner_Band

The Band has also embarked on an ambitious project to develop new rehearsal and performance facilities; progress can be followed on Facebook here. If you like what we're doing please 'like' the page, it's all good evidence to present to potential funders.

If there's interest, I can probably make this list a permanent page on http://brassbandresults.co.uk/

If your band is not on this list and would like us to follow you, follow bbresults and we'll follow you back.
