The band has just completed two busy weekends of parading in our home city of Leicester.
On June 19th we were honoured to lead a parade of Leicestershire Regiment veterans from the Cathedral to celebrate Tigers Day.
The following Saturday, June 25th was Armed Forces Day and on this occasion the band lead a parade of over three hundred veterans, cadets and reserve forces on a longer route. The parade ended in Town Hall Square, where the Lord Lieutenant, Lady Gretton, took the salute.
I'm pleased to say that the band took both high profile events in their stride, the drill and standard of music being much commented on by the parade and public. The many hours of practice have defintely paid off and you should all be very proud.
A special mention to our three young tenor drummers, Lottie, (12), Will, (10) and Callum, (8) who were all turning out for the first time on tenor, and to our new Drum Major, Bruce, who carried out his duties faultlessly.
