A New Era Begins!
The Trent Valley Troopers – a new marching band for the East Midlands successfully held their launch night on April 6th. A spokesman for the band said “ We had a good turnout on the night with many members of the public coming along to see what we have to offer!. We have gained new recruits from our evening and now have some 14 active members and a couple more in the pipeline. Our focus at the moment is to raise funds and awareness for the band with a view to creating a quality performance by 2016. We have already had a few enquiries and can confirm we will be performing in the Long Eaton Carnival in 2016 We also have a couple of provisional bookings for the end of this year if we are ready – which after having seen the quality and commitment of our members so far – seems very likely so watch this space!!”
The band practice on Wednesdays 6-7pm & Fridays 6-7.30pm at the Martial Arts Centre, Fields Farm, Long Eaton and are happy to invite anyone to come along and see what they do. More information can be found on their website www.trentvalleytroopers.org.uk or call Chris on 07933 617167
