It is with regret that we have decided to put the Southwark Children’s Brass Band on hold for this term to take stock and assess its long-term future.
As you know, the financial position of the Band has been precarious for the last few years and we do not have the resources to commit to starting a new academic year.
The lifeblood of the Band are the children, tutors and parents and carers that support our activity.
For the Band to continue we need enthusiastic volunteers to join the committee to make things happen, to create excitement and to raise funds.
If you are prepared to do this please email email@example.com.
