5th May - Moulton Chapel Flower Parade

Our regular visit to the Moulton Chapel Flower Parade where we ride on the back of a covered trailer. It was a lovely sunny day. Half way through the parade turns round at a road junction - the smaller floats can turn round earlier but large floats have to drive out of the village. We were at the fron tof the parade, after smaller floats had turned round, and had to wait nearly 10 minutes for the rest of the parade to catch up!


6th May - Holbeach Flower Festival

We had our regular visit to the Holbeach Flower Festival. Another lovely sunny day so we played on the grass outside All Saints Church. We had a good audience with many passeres-by.


1406 Air Cadets meal

One of our cornet players is in the Air Cadets as is a member of the Training Band.

It was their annual dinner and we were invited to play bakground music during the meal. It was held in the Function Room of the South Holland Centre, Spalding. We had a reduced turnout but perhaps that was as well as they did not want us to be too loud!

It went very well and we have been invited back for next year.


Jerry Green Dog Rescue Centre

A wet morning at the Jerry Green Dog Rescue at Algarkirk, for the opening of a new facility at the centre, the PawPrint Pavilion, a purpose built training/event facility. We started playing in the arena outside but the rain started and we had to relocate indoors, where we entertained the visitors.
