Drum Corps

drum

As a Group, we have a the unique distinction in our District of having our own Drum Corps. The Group had a band from its early days (there is a mention of it in the local paper in 1918), but it stopped in the late 1950s.

However after 2010’s Remembrance Day Parade, we decided we’d like to start up the drum corps and since then they have played at school summer fairs, the District’s St. George’s Day Parade, in Newcastle Town Centre and, of course, Remembrance Day. The drums are run by John and he is assisted by Natasha and Alan.

To play in our Drum Corps you have to be at least a Cub and a member of the Group.
