Silver Band Waltzes off with Community Award

Groups in Oswestry were presented with awards at the annual Town Council Civic Dinner on 18 April 2014. The recipients included the Porthywaen Silver Band, which won the Mayor’s Community Award.

Presenting a trophy to Gareth Johnson, one of Porthywaen Silver Band’s Vice-Presidents, town mayor Chris Schofield said:

The award goes to an organisation that is a prominent part of our community and give great enjoyment to many people. Porthywaen Silver Band can be seen at fundraising events, fetes, parades, concerts and local events.

The band is a great breeder for local talent with beginners and then the youth and training band and of course, the award-winning senior band.
