4BR make Telegraph headlines!

It seems the influence of 4BR is spreading to the dizzy heights of the Telegraph newspaper...

Haslingden

 

Unfortunatley on this occassion its the Lancashire Telegraph....

Chip pan blaze

Amid lead stories of a Burnley solicitor's anger over a prostitution 'scandal', a Blackburn dad who died in a chip pan blaze and that Rossendale tops the north west home birth league table, it seems that the news of Haslingden & Helmshore's 9th place in the 2008 4BR Money List was worthy of headline news.

Breathless report

The paper breathlessly reported that "A brass band in the Valley has finished in the top ten of a national prize honours list after winning numerous awards over the last three seasons.

Haslingden and Helmshore brass band has earned a ninth position place in the 4BR Money List, which was set up to highlight the most consistent bands in the country.

The musicians received the prize after performing at dozens of locations up and down the country during the past three years.
They received cash prizes at the Guild Hall, £300, North West Regional, £100, Tameside Open, £300, Whit Friday, £300, Buxton, £500, Butlins £1,500, and Pontins, £1,800."

Who says the press are not interested in brass bands then...
