Senior Service Awards for Band Members

Buxton Contest on Sunday 3rd May saw a milestone for the Vernon Building Society Poynton Band – 10 of its members received long service to brass bands awards totalling over 300 years! 

Dave Johnson, the band co-chairman said, “It’s a great achievement for our band to have so many committed players. It shows that the movement is still alive and well in the North West”
