It's always a joy to see our young musicians showing such respect and thoughtfulness for others - and never more so than during November's Remembrance services and festivals.
We're incredibly proud of our four Youth Band musicians who played the Last Post this year - Millie Hampson at Saddleworth School, Daniel Smithies at local business Ultimate Products, Amy Naylor at Holy Trinity Church on Sunday and Scarlet Brooke at Heathfield School, Rishworth. A huge well done to them all.
