Brass music makers across the Dearne Valley are being urged to take the 21st century by storm with the support of a Barnsley-based business.

Brass bands England Ltd is a not for profit company, which provides a range of support services to hundreds of brass bands across the country.

It is committed to raising the profile of brass banding and its liaison and development officer, Rachel Veitch-Straw, said the registered charity has now raised its profile with a new website and a comprehensive four-year strategy for growth. She added: “We have set ourselves aims to increase public awareness and appreciation of brass bands and to give them professional support.”
