Christmas Band Night 2022
Thank you to everyone who attended the North Cotswolds Rotary Christmas Band Concert on December 3rd and help us raise £3,500 for the Royal British Legion and Project Lifeline (supporting Ukrainian refugees in Poland). The Waterloo Band and Bugles of the 7 Rifles Reservists played a selection of Christmas music and carols, getting everyone in the festive spirit. Conductor, Major Lawrence Sale, kept everyone in good spirits throughout the evening with his commentary and jokes. Buglers raised the roof playing some of their most popular marches, matching The Rifles faster than normal pace of 140 paces per minute, maintaining the tradition of The Rifles motto ‘’Swift and Bold’’. The band also played the Dambusters theme and an RAF march in recognition of our RAF guests for the evening - Group Captain Claire O’Grady (Station Commander at Brize Norton) and Air Marshall Sir David Walker and his wife.
We would like to thank Brio Retirement Living for their sponsorship of the event. The Waterloo Band and Bugles of the 7 Rifles Reservists were keen to come back and so we have already booked them for next year on Saturday December 9th 2023 (please put it in your diaries!).
