IT IS all brass and silver down Maltby way.

That’s because the local brass band bagged themselves a haul of silverware at a competition.

The men and women of Maltby Miners’ Welfare Band enjoyed success at the North East Midlands annual brass band contest.

The band, led by musical director Terry Clifford, was awarded the Mansfield Brewery Trophy for best fourth section band and Keith Arrowsmith won the Seth Appleton trophy for best solo cornet.

The band are hoping to stay in form for this weekend’s Yorkshire Area contest in Bradford.
