 Barnton Silver Band (BSB) were this year's winners of Chester West and Cheshire (CWAC) Music voluntary award.  They were presented with this award at an evening celebrating all voluntary arts in the community at Chester Town Hall.  Along with other local dignitaries, a BSB member represented the band at a civic lunch for her majesty the Queen and Meghan Duchess of Sussex, held in Chester.

BSB was granted the award for their enduring commitment to deliver music in our community for 127 years, despite the challenges sometimes faced. The band's commitment to involve the local community of all ages and be at it's heart.  Making music and learning an instrument accessible to those who want to either play or listen.
