The Bolton Hoover Band under MD, Trevor Halliwell are hoping to continue their upward contesting trend in 2014 as they return to the First Section.

Promotion

Trevor told 4BR: "It’s been a very productive and rewarding four years since starting with the band."

2014 is sure to be very challenging but I'm sure we will rise to it and become even more successfulMD, Trevor Halliwell

Rise

He added: "Over this time they have produced a number of excellent performances both on the contest and concert platforms. 2014 is sure to be very challenging but I'm sure we will rise to it and become even more successful."
