BIDEFORD Town Band has finished its summer concerts on the Quay and in Westward Ho! and thanks all those who have helped it to raise nearly £540.

Unfortunately the sun didn't shine all the time and four concerts had to be cancelled.

But nearly £2,000 was raised in total over the summer, playing at different concerts, events and carnivals.

The band will be playing at Ilfracombe Bandstand on Sunday, September 26, from 2-4pm, and at the Massed Band Concert with Hartland and Appledore bands at the Milky Way in Clovelly on Saturday, October 9.

Bideford Band is busy collecting for its new band room fund. Anyone who would like to donate should contact the secretary, Becky Frisby on (01237) 475653. The new band website can be seen at bidefordtownband.co.uk.
