Over the past week we have paraded at New World Greenmeadows and CHB Christmas parade, both very good events. The Carols event in Waipawa was cancelled because of the weather but the contest team enjoyed a good practice and were joined by others for afternoon tea at Rod’s. We are grateful to Rod for opening his home up for us and putting on such a great spread.
Last night various group rehearsals and practices happened – the youngsters and others in preparation for next week’s final night and of course a final run through for the contest team. On Saturday night Gray and Penny will plat at the Napier Ingleside. On Monday please bring a plate for supper. No uniforms but you’re welcome to wear your D& S or other band related polo shirt.
Next year we’re planning to do a concert on the Sound Shell on Saturday 27 February at lunch time. It’s the weekend of the mission concert and a good opportunity to showcase the band.
