Shrewton Silver Band came a very creditable 8th place at the National Brass Band Championships Finals of Great Britain 2018 at Cheltenham Race Course at the weekend.. The result meant that Shrewton were the best placed Second Section band in the West of England Region, also in the South.
Musical Director, Mike Dunford said
“Thank you to all of Shrewton Silver Band and all of our amazing supporters for a fabulous weekend at the National Finals, the brilliant result was just the pinnacle, on behalf of our new President, Dave Ridout and myself I would like to say how incredibly proud we are of each and every one of you. For me it is a privilege to be able to conduct a superb bunch.”
The band recently suffered the sad loss of their President of nearly 40 years, Peter Sweet MBE, who died in August this year and whom the band are sure would have been proud of this excellent result.
