William Savage Memorial Parade - 23/04/10

The band decided to attend this parade after an 8 year none appearance, a change is always good.

I was suprised to see the numbers of bands that turned up on the night. Newtownards Volunteer flute, Ballywalter Protestant Boys, South Belfast Young Conquerors, Pride of the Raven, Sons of Kai Rathcoole, Robert Graham Memorial and Goldsprings True Defenders to name a few. The Toyes parade had gone down in recent years so i am sure they will be pleased with the big turn out. Brilliant numbers for the wee village and locals im sure getting a good trade.

Knockmore tonight looked and sounded well as were most bands tonight. It was a good run out to blow away some of the cobwebs. The route itself was very short so our own band decided to do it twice (near enough).

Below are a selection of photographs of the band in action.

Here is a clip of the band in action:

Our own band paraded tonight with 8 of a colour party, 1 drum major, 16 drummers, 29 flautists and marshalls. We played well, a longer route would have helped.

Well done to the William Savage Memorial on a very enjoyable parade.
