A pipe band with a strong contingent from the Keighley area has sounded a plea for ex-members to come forward.

City of Bradford Pipe Band, which has drawn numerous recruits from this district, marks its centenary this year.

And it is inviting former members to join the current cohort at a celebratory event in April.

“Across the years we have had many members come and go from far and wide – throughout the Yorkshire region and beyond,” said drum major, Stacey Jenkins.

“We are asking our ex-members to get in touch so we can invite them along to celebrate with us.

“We’re also seeking new recruits, and would love to hear from anyone interested in joining the band.”

The celebration is at the Hilton Hotel in Bradford on April 12.
