The band management team place the utmost importance on the safety of our members. We strive to ensure that there are opportunities for all people, whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious belief and/or sexual identity to participate in brass banding in an enjoyable and safe environment. Our Musical Directors and Band Managers have been through safeguarding training and the band organisation as a whole meets the requirements of the Brass Bands England Bandsafe programme.
The band operates a bursary scheme which can be used to offset or waive fees or help with other costs of participation for those from a disadvantaged background. Contact the Treasurer for more information about accessing the bursary fund. Enquiries will be treated in strict confidence.
