Dobcross Youth Band is at St Gabriel's Church, Ashton-Under-Lyne.
We loved playing for our friends St. Gabriels Church today at Ashton Whit Walks. Before the procession the Reverend Ben Brady told us it was his first walk of witness - we don't think it will be his last! Thank you to him and all at St Gabriel's for making this such a fun day for the players - we won't forget the boogieing vicar in a hurry. An afternoon full of joy and smiles for us all.

We are bag packing at the Tesco store in Greenfield today to raise funds for the band. Why not call in and say hello (and don't forget to ask for the blue tokens 😊)

Congratulations to our wonderful players of the month, Ruby and Anna. Ruby has been chosen for her fantastic playing in the Intermediate Band and leading her section at the Great Manchester Run - a really demanding day with lots of playing in very hot weather. Anna's award reflects the way she is a brilliant role model for all players, working really hard and leading by example in the Youth Band. She's really kind to the younger ones and looked after all those playing on their first Whit Friday. She will be very much missed when she leaves the band this summer.

It was brilliant to see Seth Livingstone lead out our younger players for his first Whit Friday procession as Associate Musical Director - they were proud as punch to be part of such a fantastic tradition, despite the weather. Because the beginners and trainers don't yet take part in the evening contests, Seth was invited to join the hugely popular and very talented brass outfit Chav Brass on the Saddleworth Whit Friday circuit. Here's Seth on the far right in this video, playing euphonium on Knight Templar in Dobcross. The kids love it when he brings his euph to rehearsals and you can hear why!
