Following our very long day at Whit Friday on the 14th June, we decided to do it all again in Morley on Sunday 16th June.
Morley hosts a March and Hymn contest, so we arrived at Morley at lunchtime, ready to give the march Knight Templar one more outing. The weather was changeable to say the least, one moment beautiful sunshine, the next monsoon rain. But we braved the elements and marched down Queen Street to the Town Hall, playing Arnhem.
The Contest Hymn came first, The Day Though Gavest, followed by Contest March Knight Templar for the final time this year. Would we achieve the same result as last year? The results came in – we were the highest placed Second Section band, and were 5th overall, and for the March alone we were 4th, beating some very good higher section bands.
