Roll of Honour
In 2008, the Regional Council approved a proposal to institute a “Roll
of Honour” to honour those people who, in the Council’s opinion, have made a significant contribution to brass
bands in Wales. Nominations for worthy candidates can be submitted by bands to their local Associations who will select which
nominations should go forward for consideration by the Regional Council. It is expected that the Regional Council will approve
only one nomination in any year.
The following persons, having made a significant contribution to brass bands in Wales are include
in the Role of Honour: Graham Hedditch+
