Bugles uncropped

Our Boys' Brigade Company recently purchased six new bugles, which had their first public outing when the band led the town's Remembrance Day parade in November. The cost was partially met by a grant of £600 from Councillor Graham Hill, through an East Hampshire District Council scheme, and so he was invited to visit the Company to see and hear the magnificent new instruments.

The new bugles are tuneable, meaning that they can always be kept in pitch with each other, and the quality of the sound is excellent. They are also very attractive, decked out with smart dress cords!

Councillor Hill was thanked for his support, and presented with a small "Friend of the BB" badge in recognition of his help.

The band has gained five new members in the last few weeks, and they are all working hard to master bugle and drum in readiness for future parades and performances.
