Award-winning Thornsett Band members John Cossee, Joe Bellfield-Hall and his brother Jack braved the rain at Friday’s Hayfield Christmas lights switch-on.

John, 19, who recently switched from cornet to Eb bass, won the club’s musicianship award, while 17-year-old Joe, who swapped baritone for tenor horn, won the most improved player award.

Trombonist Jack, 16, was named the best soloist, despite only playing solo parts since September.

Thornsett Band’s Christmas concert will be held on Sunday at 2.30pm at Spring Bank Arts Centre in New Mills.
