IMG_2620_SmAfter the triumph of a fantastic Wakes Carnival Parade, led as always by Tideswell Band, came the awful news of the devastating fire in the Band’s storage room.  The blaze destroyed many instruments, several band uniforms, all the music stands, banners and all the music. 

Vernon Watson, president of Tideswell Band, said “Tideswell Band has been going for 140 years and much of its archive material as well as its historical music was destroyed in the fire and is irreplaceable.”

The Cubs and Scouts have also lost their base as the Youth Club building was used as their meeting. Place as well as the band room.

The support we have had over the past 12 hours since the fire has been overwhelming and we would like to thank the people of Tideswell and all the others who have donated instruments and money and have offered help in the interim.

Over the next few months we will be fundraising and hope the people of Tideswell will continue to support us.
