Alford Silver Band braves winter

THE ALFORD Silver Band kicked off its inaugural concert of the year with a performance in Chapel Village Hall at the weekend.

Braving the intense cold the audience, which included members of the village hall committee and Chapel Council, enjoyed a varied programme conducted and introduced by the band’s musical director Steve Walker.

Highlights of the show included a roof-raising solo by drummer Lewis Knight and showpieces by individual members.

The band will return to Chapel Village Hall in May.
