After completing a hectic Christmas concert programme, Lofthouse Brass Band staged its annual awards night dinner.
MD Andrew Whitaker said: “The band is growing from strength to strength as we approach the Area contest.
I enjoy rehearsing a full band and the players are enjoying the challenge of new music as well as a fun social calendar. The awards night highlighted that every player is important and their hard work and dedication allow the band to continue to grow.”
The three major awards for ‘Player’s Player’ was retained by Andy Schofield, whilst the ‘Most Improved Player’ went to Emily Fawthrop and ‘Section of the Year’ went to the backline cornet section. The committee ‘Bandsperson of the Year’ went to Vicky Whitaker who plays a key role as the band’s treasurer.
