Jubilee boost for Lydbrook

The Lydbrook Band will be helping Her Majesty celebrate her jubilee in diamond fashion after securing grant.

Lydbrook
 

The Lydbrook Band has announced that they have been successful with their bid to the Arts Council under the Grants for the Arts scheme for funding towards the Royal Forest Jubilee event they are organising in the Forest of Dean to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Hard work

The application prepared by project co-ordinator Steve Haighway and his wife Lucy, was submitted after many weeks of hard work.

Lucy told 4BR: "We were very grateful to the BFBB and in particular Terry Luddington, who vetted the application before submission and made a number of suggestions to enhance the application.

It was a stroke of luck really that I was able to attend Terry's presentation on fund raising this time last year at the Gloucester Brass Band Association AGM. It gave me the inspiration to go ahead with the application for the Royal Forest Jubilee."

We are delighted to receive the grant of £9,920 towards this huge event that we are promoting to celebrate this once in a lifetime Royal occasionLydbrook Band

Huge event

Band Chairman Trevor Moss added: "We are delighted to receive the grant of £9,920 towards this huge event that we are promoting to celebrate this once in a lifetime Royal occasion. It will be without doubt the largest jubilee celebration in the area."

The band will also support two charities helping to raise funds for The Great Oaks Hospice in the Forest of Dean as well as Help for Heroes.

Become a supporter and help make our future secure.
