Drum and Brass has grown fast over the last year and we have had to work hard to ensure this growth is sustainable. First and foremost, we have been working with VAL to develop our policies. We work with vulnerable people and their safety is a top priority. Our Safeguarding policy is therefore updated annually and our members are required to carry up-to-date CRB checks and are required to read our policies carefully.

So, safe to continue.... and our projects? Read on:
