Durham Miners' Gala July 2016
Thurcroft Welfare Band and its members once again attended the Durham Miners' Gala. The gala took place on Saturday 9th July and as usual the band marched through Thornley with the Lodge banner at 8am. En route, Kevin Lee played 'Happy Birthday' to the delight of one local resident who was presented to a bouquet of flowers by her great grandchildren. The band then played 'Gresford' at the war memorial before proceeding to Durham. At Durham the band performed 'All that Jazz' in front of the County Hotel to the dignatories including Jeremay Corbyn.
