No better

He added: “As all brass band loves know, a ‘Pondasher’ is a person who supports Black Dyke Band.

The award was presented to us by Ian and Jan Thompson and recognises a person that goes the extra mile, a person who leads by example. This year there has been no better who has done that than Richard Marshall."
