Band youngsters in Alford have benefitted from some new donations.

Two Alford residents have given musical youngsters in the area an instrument donation. Manfred and Shirley James have donated funds to purchase two training trombones specifically for two younger players who have recently taken up music, Maisie Allen and Sean Briggs.

Alford Silver Band chairman Martin Briggs, said: “We are very grateful to donors such as Manfred and Shirley.

“Playing in a brass band does more than give young people an interest in music, it teaches them self-discipline and gives them chance to be part of a team.”
