West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service Pipe Band
The band has recently recruited more side drummers to the corps but need a bass player.
We would also like to invite pipers to join the band to expand the section and give the band better balance.
The band has a long history, has excellent practice facililities both indoor and outdoors
and has full backing from the Brigade.
We practice on Monday evenings at Fire Service Headquarters, Birkenshaw, BD11 2DY about 1 mile from M62 junction 26.

NEW OUTDOOR COMPETITION
(Letter from Kevin Reilly, RSPBA N.E. England)
Looking for your support! For the first time in many years we have been able to secure funding from Thornaby Council to host an outdoor Competition. The date is Sat 17th June 2017 Venue is Thornaby, most probably the Football Club.
To make this a viable afternoon we are offering a Grade Four, Grade Three Full Band Competitions and also Mini Band Competitions. We have prize money of £1500 to be distributed between the competitions.
This news has only just been received hence the unorthodox approach to the bands. I will in the next three weeks produce an official entry form, so bear with me.
Please put this date in your bands diary and support the event, remember a mini band is only four pipers, two snares and a bass.
Please pass this information on to any band that you know and help us to make this event a success, if a success this year I have been informed that if a success this year then it may continue and become a regular event.
