Shaftesbury Town Silver Band - Contest 2015


Shaftesbury Town Silver Band returned to contesting in March  2015 at the South West Area Contest held in Torquay, under the baton of MD Mr Martin Hill.


Whilst the Band didn't win, we also didn't come last beating some regular contesting bands from the Sout West.

Shaftebury Town Silver Band are currently ranked mid table of the 4th Section.


With the return of the contest mentalitly came a feel for team identity whilst out of full band uniform.

New Band embroidered T-shirts were purchased and issued to members for this.

Hoodies and Sweatshirts were also offered at individual member cost. Most of the band now have both. 


Below are a selection of photos from the day including the on stage photo.
