Gweek Silver Band at the Cornwall Music Festival 21 March 2015
Our annual All-Day Clay Pigeon Shoot took place on Sunday 17 April at Zelah Farm, Gweek, by kind permission of Mr Eric Cotter. With nearly 50 guns attending, the competition was won by Tyler Allen with a score of 48 out of 50 birds. Second place went to Andy Jolley with 47. The side-by-side competition was won by Nigel Bennetts with a score of 47 and Jackie Laity was the highest scoring lady with 35. The band provided refreshments and entertainment, and around £700 was raised for band funds. A big “Thank You” to all who took part!
We are very proud of our Flugel Horn player, Mr John Austin, who was recently presented with a civic award from Cornwall Council for his Services to Music.
