Over the past few months 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 amounts to over £10,000, but rather than being daunted by this prospect everyone is rallying 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 money for the Roof Fund. Over Christmas this year the Band will be playing 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.

Huddersfield Common Good Trust has kindly pledged £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:

We are pleased to announce that Yorkshire Traction Honley Band were placed 8th at the Pogson Bray Entertainment Contest in Elland, and second in the Unregistered and Youth Section.    We beat a 4th Section band and, apart from Thurlstone who we pass on our Congratulations to, we were only beaten by 3rd and 2nd Section Bands. 

This is a hugely satisfying result for all of us and reflects the significant progress that this band has made over the past year.
