After being drawn last, the band performed the Area test piece 'First Suite in Eb'.The results were straight after the band played. The first award received was 'best euphonium' collected by Colin Moss. The second award received was 'best bass section' this was collected by Rebecca Burgess-Dawson.The band were then delighted to achieve second place with only a one point gap between the winners 'Bearpark and Esh Colliery Band'. The contest was a much needed boost for the band, who are now looking forward to taking the feedback from the adjudicator on board for the Area Contest.
