It is with enormous pride that we can report a fantastic evening that was had by all that attended the Waterloo Band and Bugles of the Rifles Charity Concert on Bank Holiday Monday. We raised some £ 2600 for distribution between RAFA RAF St Mawgan Branch, Royal British Legion St Columb Branch and the St Columb Major Church. We had invited two very talented Cornish youngsters to take part in the concert and play alongside the band. A unique opportunity which they both enjoyed and were able to make some new contacts to help with musical careers for the future. More photo’s available on the Facebook page. But it was a great night enjoyed by an audience of 200 plus.
The soldier’s maxim – Every minute not spending playing or eating a Cornish Pasty is a minute wasted ! Picture by Chris
