Spen Valley Scout and Guide Band

The Spen Valley Scout and Guide Band has been given a donation by the Yorkshire Freemasons.

The band was donated £1,000 by the organisation to spend on new equipment. Band leader Joanna Nelson said: “We are very thankful for the donation. We are going to be taking part in a few competitions soon, so hopefully we will be able to get the new equipment in time for that.”

The traditional military-style band has members aged eight upwards, and is on the lookout for new members. For more information on joining the band, email spenband@btopenworld.com.
