AWARDS Presented at our Spring Concert 21st April 2017
MUSICAL DIRECTOR:- GEOF BENSON
(The Band was formally known as Pleasley Colliery Silver Prize Band)
The general consensus is that the band began life around 1883 ten years or so after the first mine shafts were sunk in 1871 – 73, the first coal being hewn in 1875. At that time Stanton Ironworks Company owned both Pleasley and Teversal Collieries. Pleasley Colliery being the second oldest pit in the north Derbyshire coalfield.
We are pleased to announce that
KAREN VARLEY has returned to lead the Band and is now back in the Principal Cornets Chair.
Another welcome return is that of Lynne Dennis who will be an addition to our back row line up
