Our new Patronage Scheme has been set up and run to date by our Musical Director, Adam Whittle in the late months of 2016.
The Patronage Scheme now has 22 members and is going from strength to strength as 2017 passes us by. However, with his commitments to the musical aspect of the band, Adam has decided that the patrons would be in better hands with his Father, Richard Whittle.
Richard comes to the band with a wealth of band organizing experience. He held the position of Treasurer and General Secretary for the Shirland Band for several years, even filling both roles at once for some of that period. Richard then followed Adam to Chapeltown where he once again became the bands General Secretary.
Richard will be a greatr asset to the background team of the band and we know that our patrons will be in good hands. Richard also makes the pork pies for Todwick... well worth a try!!
Welcome to the fold Richard.
