Remembrance Sunday 2014

One hundred years after the outbreak of the First World War, Freckleton Band were proud to support the Remembrance Sunday Parades in our area. Again this year, there was another huge Fylde turnout at the parades both in St Annes and Freckleton today. Ian Walsh, formerly of the Coldstream Guards, sounded the Last Post.

Junior Band Christmas Concert and Awards

The Junior Band again gave a “mini concert within a concert” at the Lowther Pavilion in Lytham on Sunday night. For many of the youngsters, it was their first time playing in front of a large audience, however, their hard work in rehearsals with Kath Threlfall and the other adult helpers, really paid off in their performance. Well done to everyone.

Well done, keep up the good work!

Thank you Kath for leading the band, Gail for organising everyone and Al, Marge, Ian, Pat, Mark and everyone who has helped throughout the year.`
