West of England Championships
Torquay

The result was a little disappointing for Weymouth Concert Brass who were hoping to build on the 1st place in the South West of England contest and our 6th position in last year's Championships, but the band's day out at the championships is always an enjoyable get together, meeting and hearing other bands.
