“It feels nice to be part of a group who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special.” 

Maddison, aged 10.

What do the clergy think?

“I have been involved with CLCGB since 1969 and have seen how precious it was and what a difference it made in my Parish, All Saints & Martyrs Langley, which had a huge Company. It brings what young people need to young people, it gives them friendship, it gives them fellowship and fun."

Bishop Jack Nichols

National Band Competition 2014 On May 17th 2014 the National Band Competition took place in Hinckley. Companies from across the UK joined together and put on their individual displays. The Hinckley Leisure Centre Hall was full, with around 500 members and spectators enjoying the day alongside Audrey Simm (CEO), Liz Butterfield (Governor), Martyn Bedder (Deputy Governor) and staff from NHQ.

A gallery of photo's have been added to the website to see the full pictures of the day click the following link: http://www.clcgb.org.uk/brigade-gallery/category/29-nbandcomp2014 

The CLCGB National Band also attended and treated everyone to their display and great music.

The results of the competition were:

Novice class - Runner Up - St Mary's Hinckley & Atherstone; Winners - St Mark's Heyside

Contest class - Winners - St Mary's Barwell

Championship class - Runner Up - St Peter's Chorley; Winners - St Andrew's New Earswick

There were 11 ensembles and 15 soloists - more soloists than ever before, and the introduction of an open-age ensemble category proved to be a success

St Peter's Chorley beginner band achieved an overall gold.

It was a fantastic day, and so good to see members enjoying themselves. The high quality of every band, and individuals showed that a lot of practicing and hard work went on in the line up to the competition. All the members and leaders should be proud of themselves wherever they came in the competition and we look forward to next year's competition.
