Thanks to kind donations and fundraising
the band have managed to buy a set of much needed new uniform jackets, the old ones having become worn and faded after nearly 30 years of use.
The new jackets are black with blue lapels and gold trim.

Kind Donation from Jazz in the Spa
At the bandstand concert on 5th May the band were presented with a cheque for £2,000 towards the band’s new uniforms from our friends Jazz in the Spa, who run jazz concerts every Saturday night in Boston Spa.
JITS say: "A nice announcement to make from JITS. On Sunday we presented Wetherby Silver Band with a cheque for £2000 from Jazz in the Spa towards the Band’s fund to provide new uniforms. It’s just a little thing we can do to pay it forward. The Wetherby Silver Band has a lot of young members so it’s also good to support the next generation of musicians."
A huge thank you from the Wetherby Silver Band, it is much appreciated.
