From October 2, 2023 the postage prices have gone up again. This will make a difference to the subscriber copies of the Brighouse and District Heritage Newseum magazine. The cost of the 4 issue subscription was £23.60 but as from today it will be £26.20. That increase is purely because of the postage increase of 2nd class large letters which is the required postage for the magazine. The price of the magazine stays the same £3.95.. I look forward to your contin ued support.
Thanks everyone - It is only Thursday and another three days of speaking engagements completed... Monday it was a morning introducing the 50 members of the Morley Monday Club to the world of brass bands and then off on Tuesday to Shadwell in Leeds to the Sweet Memories Group. This was a really nice group of 'mature citizens...' they all enjoyed taking a nostalgic look back at the holidays of the 1950s.
Wednesday a trip out to the Wharfedale Ladies Luncheon Club at Ben Rhydding near Ilkley. This was held at the Audley Clevedon Retirement Village what a fabulous place this is.
Now it is time to prepare Sunday's weekly brass band radio show...
PS Unlike this speaker keep your audience engaged....
Having been in touch with Dec Cluskey over the last few months I am helping him promote his monthly 'Sounds on Sunday'... Here is a chance to look into Dec's show. There are many performances that highlights Dec with his late brother Con.

Now last week's radio show is out of the way its prep time for this week's speaking engagements.
.Monday night it's off to the outer reaches of Huddersfield to Marsden Mechanic's Institute and share my Introduction to the World of Brass Bands. The last time I was out Marsden way would be about 60 years ago when our youth club went open water swimming in a reservoir out that way.
Tuesday - Back to Huddersfield to a church and share 'How we used to live', the members are going to enjoy this one. No time to waste must get back ASAP for a zoom dry-run with Skegness Probus Club.
Wednesday - an evening with the Cleckheaton and District Rotary Club - it's the pirate presentation at this one which should go down well with the members.
Thursday and we off again this time to Pudsey Civic Society to share the lighter side of my policing years - back to the old days including the short time I spent in Leeds and having to attend a four hour course on how the new money will work - decimalisation February 15, 1971 - can you remember that day?
Friday and its back to prep the new radio show for Sunday.
It's all go, you have to keep busy...
