EVERY little helps and Tenbury Town Band have shoppers at Tesco to thank for a new drum kit.

Last Year Tenbury Town band were awarded £2,000 from the Tesco blue token scheme. The money has been spent on a variety of new percussion equipment including a new drum kit which made its first appearance at a music workshop weekend held at the High School with a guest conductor Matt Stimpson. Matt is a music teacher and was Classic FMs music teacher of the year in 2010.

A great weekend was had by all and there was a chance to hear the new percussion instruments which will be used for all the band’s appearances at concerts, fetes and other events. They will replace much older equipment some of which has been with the band for 30 years.

Mark Yarnold, Tenbury Town Bands president, says a big thank.
