UNFORTUNATELY THE BAND IS NO LONGER OPERATING

 

In 2008 all that was left of the band was 1 officer, 1 committee member and 2 boys. Some previous band members got together to try and save the band from closing. For 10 years the band kept going, introduced girls to the organization, took on new members and staff and had fun and entertained people at shows around Essex, Kent and surrounding areas.

 

Unfortunately with dwindling members and senior members going to other bands we struggled to stay viable. Subsequently we lost our practiCe facilities when the council closed the Robert Beard Youth Centre in 2018.

 

We kept a very small contingent performing at a couple of local shows whilst we searched for alternative facilities, however despite effort and time we were unsuccessful in securing affordable and suitable facilities.

 

It is with great regret we announce the closure of the band after 60 years. The end of an era.

 

It is very sad that so many youth bands have disappeared over the last 20 years. There are now only a fifth of the number of youth bands that were around 20 years ago.

 

This website will soon close down. Should anyone like to see old band photos or keep in touch please feel free to check our facebook page.
