Percussion Provided & Long Service Awards

A list of the percussion we will be providing for each of the graded sections at our contest has been emailed to all the band secretaries. A copy may be found on our documents page. Please let Robert Stansfield know if you think we have overlooked anything.

              For the unregistered and training band sections, there will be at least all the percussion we are providing for the fourth and second sections on the Saturday; please let Robert Stansfield know if there is anything else you require from the other sections on the Sunday, and we will see what we can do.

               NEMBBA offers long service certificates to players (and conductors) for 25, 50, 60 and 75 cumulative years of membership of brass bands. This includes time playing in school or training brass bands and non-contesting bands (and for non-NEMBBA bands). Awards can be made retrospectively if you have, for example, players who have been playing for 30 years. Please let Robert Stansfield know if any of your players qualify for a certificate and we will arrange for them to be presented before your section’s results at the contest.
