Lions Club member and SSBB Controller Helen B and her SSBB Rider husband Nigel B recently met members of various Lions groups at a Lichfield Lions Zone meeting where they were giving a talk on SSBB. Helen spent some time talking to Shaun Middleton, a member of the recently formed Hednesford Lions group and Shaun has since been in contact with Helen in his capacity of Musical Director of Bridgtown Concert Show Band.
It would appear that Shaun has told the band all about SSBB and the work we do and the Bridgtown Concert Band members, in addition to various charitable donations that they make in their local area, have decided to nominate SSBB as their main charity for 2014-2015. Shaun advises that SSBB will benefit from several events that will be held during the coming year.
May we say a huge thank you to Shaun and the Band members for this nomination. We are delighted with the news and we look forward to meeting many of you during the next twelve months.
The first event is their “Concert and Roast” night on Monday December 1st at Bridgtown Social Club. I believe this is very popular so please refer to the flier for details of how to buy tickets. £4.00 each, fantastic entertainment, the opportunity to take part in the raffle and to purchase a hot pork bap!!!
Sounds like a good night to me! So if you enjoy a good wind ensemble (No sniggering at the back!), then why not come and sample one of Staffordshire’s finest! We look forward to seeing you on the 1st!
