National Band Success for Hereford Cadet

National Band Success for Hereford Cadet

Congratulations to Cadet First Class Carys who represented South West Area at the National Band Competition held onSaturday 3rd August at the Tower of London playing percussion and bugle.

South West Area achieved a commendable second place in the 'Best all-round bands' category.  The standard was extremely high with South West Area being just pipped at the post by a strong Southern Area.

This was an amazing achievement by the South West Area given that the majority of bank members had only recently started to play their respective instruments and had to travel considerable distances to practice.

To add icing to the cake South West Area also achieved 1st place in the 'best original composition'.
