They were awarded Bass Section of the Year and Joint Player’s Player of the Year respectively.

The awards follow a successful year for the band, with a win at the Bolsover Entertainments Championship and 7th place at the national finals.

A spokesman said all the players were happy with the results and were currently preparing for a Leicester contest in November.

He added: “We are also looking forward to the challenge that promotion to the Championship section in January will bring.”
