Syston Band has been doubly fortunate recently to receive two financial awards. Syston Town Council have given an £125 contribution towards the band’s Youth Development Project.
Charnwood Borough Council has awarded £3000 toward the refurbishment of some of the band’s instrument stock. Brass band instruments are an expensive commodity; for example, a Euphonium can cost over £6000 and a Bb Bass over £10000. However, a refurbishment costing a fraction of this can extend the life of an instrument by many years. Syston Band provides instruments, music and uniforms free of charge and is grateful to CBC for their help in ensuring the availability of serviceable instruments for present and future members.
Syston Band Chairman, Dave Houseman, told the Syston Town News that the Band acknowledges the time and hard work that Committee Member Derek Burden devotes to sourcing grants
