Kathy Woods, nee Hillerby, sent The Visitor a photo taken in the mid-50s of what was then the Morecambe Silver Band.

Kathy’s father, Jack Hillerby, is present in the picture, but is appealing for more information to identify other members.

She said: “My father was a regular member of the band for many years, and I well remember concerts in Happy Mount Park in the late 1950s, as well as being part of the carnival processions and Remembrance Days.  

“Also going to Garstang and as far as Richmond in Yorkshire with dad for concerts.  

“I also have a memory of him playing in Blackpool Tower Circus too.”

Information so far traces the photograph to Poulton-le-Sands Primary School yard for the Morecambe Borough Band in 1956.
