Play-along-again at band’s 40th

A JUNIOR band hopes to mark its 40th anniversary later this year with a reunion dinner for past and present players.

Hebden Bridge Junior Band is asking all former players and committee members to join them for a reunion dinner to mark the special date.

It will take place at the Cedar Court Hotel at Ainley Top on September 17.

Tickets are £25 and include a buffet supper, disco – and the chance to play together once again. So bring instruments!

Band president Anne Bridges said she’d particularly like to make contact with any founder members.

She said: “We’d love to get as many old faces together as possible for what promises to be a very special reunion.

“We were really pleased with how many we managed to contact for our 30th anniversary, but a lot more children have gone through the band over the last 10 years and we’d like them to get in contact and come along too.”
