Two events for the Mercian Regiment
The Band was pleased to be able to play at the Mercian Regimental Reunion held at Sixways Rugby Club. It was perfect weather for the event which was well supported by many servicemen. The band played for the Drum Head Service and March Past and also supplied background music throughout the afternoon.
More recently the band has played at the National Memorial Arboretum for the Mercian Volunteers Regimental Association. It was our second invitation to play at this amazing venue, and a huge privilege. Lots of families and spectators gathered for the service of remembrance. So many appreciative comments about the band were received. After the service the band provided music while everyone enjoyed a picnic.
