January 2019 After 2 years Gordon will be standing down as MD for Silsden Town Band

We are sorry to announce that our MD for 2 years, Gordon Eddison will be leaving Silsden Town Band. His last performance, yes it is always a performance, will be in March at Silsden Town Hall.

Those of you who follow our band will be aware of his anecdotes and also of how much the band has improved under his direction.

On behalf of the band and committee, we wish to thank him for his time and patience over the last two years, and also a great thank you to his wife Sheila who has played in the cornet section.

We shall miss them both but they have indicated that they will be still around to help out if required.

We are recruiting new players now of all abilities please email silsdentownband@gmail.com
