Droylsden’s St John’s Band are hoping to attract new members to allow them to play on for years to come.

St John’s are a passionate group, but are keen to attract younger people.

Musical Director Peter Douthwaite, said: “Sadly there’s a lack of interest in brass bands within modern society nowadays and bands are finding it difficult to attract younger players, having to compete with the mega pop stars of this world when it comes to young people learning to play instruments.

“It’s a real shame that young people don’t seem to be interested in brass bands in the same way any more. It wasn’t that long ago when they used to thrive.”
