Home pride for Roberts Bakery

With the help of their long term sponsors Roberts Bakery Band can now enjoy working from a permanent rehearsal base.

  Roberts Bakery Band now enjoys the benefits of a new home thanks to their sponsors.

The Roberts Bakery Band has recently moved into their new bandroom in their home town of Sandbach, Cheshire.

The band is fortunate to have received consistent support from the Northwich-based Roberts Bakery since 1980, a length of sponsorship almost unheard of in today's banding world — and one which has enabled them to make the move to their new base.

Excited

Lindsay Occleston of Roberts Bakery told 4BR: "We're excited to continue our support of the band. It's fantastic to have been able to provide the support they needed to move into their own rehearsal space. I'm sure many other bands in the country would be envious of the facility."

She added: "We feel this is a fantastic opportunity for the company to really allow the band and Roberts family business to enjoy an active relationship rather than being simply 'sponsors' of the past and for everyone in the band to wear their Roberts badge with pride."

Strength to strength

Band MD Simon Stonehouse agreed: "The band has gone from strength to strength over recent years and this really is the icing on top of the cake. Our previous facilities made everything difficult in terms of rehearsing and moving forward musically.

Thanks to the Foden's Band we were able to get into a purpose built facility from time to time, but now we can start to enjoy the consistency of having our own rehearsal space."

We are extremely grateful to Roberts Bakery for their continued support and are pleased to have been able to secure a premises in such close proximity to their hometownMD, Simon Stonehouse

Strong nucleus

He added: "We have a strong nucleus of members, with many new young players being nurtured to enrich our ranks. The band enjoys contests and has built up an excellent reputation in recent years for being outstanding entertainers on the concert platform.

We are extremely grateful to Roberts Bakery for their continued support and are pleased to have been able to secure a premises in such close proximity to their hometown and many of the band's concert venues."
