The great news is that we have now filled the cornet back line, the bad news is.....we are in desperate need of more front row cornets, although we have been delighted to welcome our youngest front row cornet player Henry to the ranks. Are there any back row players out there who fancy a step up?  Or if you have not played for a while why not come along and have a blow with us and enjoy the camaraderie and fun as you get back into banding again? An extra cornet or two would really swell the sound, and our full autumn/winter season will give you lots of opportunities to be part of a great team!  

Come on, have a go!

 
     
   

  

Over the past year or so Yorkshire Traction Honley Band has been busy raising funds to repair the roof of their Bandroom in Berry Croft, Honley. The estimated cost of a full repair was well over £10,000, but rather than being daunted by this prospect everyone rallied together to bake delicious cakes for various cake stalls, donating items for table top sales, and playing their hearts out at various functions to raise the needed money. Over Christmas last year the Band played at least 12 times in local Supermarkets, clubs and churches, as well as doing lots of street busking, all in aid of the Roof Repair Fund, and again we are hoping for a good season this year to help restore our depleted funds!

Huddersfield Common Good Trust kindly granted us £3,500 towards the project, and Huddersfield One Community Foundation together with Longley Farm have given a grant of £500. Fundraising is ongoing, and we value every contribution however great or small. Donations can be sent to:
