G.C.G. Silver Band at Llandovery. The visit of the Gwaun-cae-gurwen Silver Band to Llandovery on Sunday, the 10th inst., was a signal feature of the celebrations in connection with the Mayor's Church Parade. The band, which is, of course, thi champion band in the Principality, did not confine itself to the limits of the programme arranged, but, during the afternoon, visited the local Red Cross Hospital, and gave selections from their repertoire to an enlha- siastic and appreciative gathering of wounded. In the evening, the Mayor presided at the concert given at the Drill Hall, when the band rendered a number of famous test- pieces in a programme which contained more than one masterpiece. In proposing a vote of thanks to the Mayor, Mr. Rees Alexander (band secretary) pointed out amidst general applause that the band, during the war, had collected no lese than £ 1,200 on behalf of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Families' Association, whilst some of its members had served abroad in the cause of freedom. He explained that new instruments had been purchased, and a sum of £524 was needed to foot the bill. The band, he con- cluded, had done its bit to assist the families of those who were fighting, and it was now the duty of the public to recip- rocate. The Mayor, in responding, announced that a donation of £5 would be forthcoming from him.
