Bakewell 7th July 2007

This weekend saw the band performing at the Bakewell Carnival for the 30th consecutive occasion. However, due to the recent heavy rainfall the local Council had cancelled the use of the recreation ground to the organisers.

Nevertheless, the parade was re-arranged to commence from the garage forecourt across the road from the park, with the sun shining on the event as it as for many previous years.

Shock of the day was to learn that the carnival Chairperson for over twenty years Bill Kruger, had suddenly passed away recently, our deepest condolences were extended to Bills wife and family. However, he must have been smiling down on the town as the crowds turned out in their thousands to line the carnival streets as the bands and floats past along the route and back to the new assembly point.

Undeterred by not being able to perform their usual display routine in the park, the band gave a polished musical programme on the lawned area near the 'Manners' pub for the carnival revellers enjoying their late afternoon drink. Hopefully next year the event will be back to it's best under the stewardship of a new Chairperson to carry on the long tradition created by Bill.
