The NASUWT Riverside and Concert Bands combine together each year to march through the streets of Durham on Gala Day. However, this year was extra special as we had the unveiling of two new banners both the NASUWT Durham Association banner and the new Pelton Fell Colliery banner.
This year was a very proud occasion for Pelton Fell, where the band room is located, as the village had commissioned a new banner. The bands were very honoured and privileged to take the new banner into Durham and have the banner blessed in Durham Cathedral . This is probably the first time since 1964, when the pit closed, that Pelton Fell has paraded its banner.
