A new era at March Brass has begun.

The group has moved its practice venue to St Peter’s Church due to the rising costs at the Roman Catholic Church Hall.

Chairman, Peter Sutterby, said: “It is with sadness that we leave the Roman Catholic Church, but we are very grateful to Rev Andrew Smith at St Peter’s Church for giving us a new home and supporting the band.

“We are very proud of our history and the important thing is that the band continues to play on.

“The band celebrated 125 years last year and are proud to maintain a brass band in this part of Fenland performing at various venues across the area.”

The band is always looking for new members. If you are interested, contact secretary Liley Eddy on 07852 247196 or email marchbrass2000@gmail.com.
