KIND words from the Queen will take pride of place in a band room in Kirton after she replied to a letter congratulating her on her Jubilee year.

Kirton Brass Band members received the card thanking them for their loyalty and support after writing to Buckingham Palace earlier this year.

Band secretary Tony Fell said: “As the band was formed in the reign of Queen Victoria we wanted to send our good wishes to Queen in her Jubilee year.

“We received a lovely card with pictures of the Queen throughout her life, which we are going to have framed and put up in the band room.”

Jubilee celebrations for the band will include a concert at Kirton Town Hall on May 26 and a gala concert in October.
