Sumner Silver Band
Success at Regional Championships!

After months of practice and preparation, SSB took the regional championships by storm, securing the Entertainment Cup for our efforts.

Hei Hei Community Carols

The band was bravely led by Salvation Army Captain Eric Turner, in his first ever conducting role - one to tick of his bucket list at least!

Sumner Community Carols

It would be nice to say that the stalwart kiwi spirit kept us warm through the Sumner Community Carols today but sadly, the Southerly wind won and we all froze!  A hardy 80 or so singers enjoyed the carols with the band though and there was a great spirit despite the chill.

Needless to say, we'll be back next year, hoping for a balmy Summer's evening.
