Proud

Speaking about the event as well as looking back on that Skegness triumph, Golborne MD, Joshua Hughes tod 4BR: "I'm extremely proud of the band's victory. We are determined to do well at the North West Regional Championships and everyone rushed back home on the Monday to have a rehearsal that evening on the Area test piece.

This is the first time we have hosted anything like this and it's a real community effort. We are looking forward to meeting up with the other bands and getting feedback from the unofficial adjudicator for the evening Andrew Berryman."
