Additional Artefacts for our Heritage Centre

Since opening in July we have had a number of visitors to our Heritage Centre and some wonderful artefacts and memorabilia have been donated to the collection. There are several items originally owned by Dr Roy Newsome, who for many years was the bands musical director, including an inscribed baton and a small engraved drinking cup. Also, of great interest is a book complied bythe legendary  Arthur O. Pearce of all BBC broadcasts by the band from the 1920's to the late 1940's featuring many during the war years.

These items will be in display at the end of September 2017.
