A GROUP of brass players including members of Skipton Brass, North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire Brass, and a player from Haworth Band, played Christmas music outside the entrance to the outpatients department at Airedale Hospital last Friday, whilst members of staff collected festive packed lunches from a gazebo close by.

The atmosphere was jolly and helped put smiles on the faces of people entering the hospital as outpatients.
