Harrogate and District Sea Cadets Annual Awards
WBro. Stephen Brown and WBro. Douglas Mills attended the Harrogate and District Sea Cadets Annual Awards at the Cedar Court Hotel where the Mayor of Harrogate, Cllr Anne Jones, presented awards including several for band members.
The PGM’s Fund had approved an application from The Spa Lodge for a grant of £1000 to replace ageing band equipment. The purchase of this new equipment including cymbals, bell lyre and bugle mouthpieces, enhances the cadet’s experience by way of having modern up to date equipment. The old equipment will be used by new members whilst they are learning.
Sub Lieutenant (SCC) Dan Wilding RNR said that “he foresaw a secondary benefit in that they would now be able to market the band in a more professional manner and thus increase their participation in the local community and even offered to play at a Lodge event.”
