Hi Liz! I am so chuffed to have stumbled onto this site. I was the Mascot for the Rainworth Royals in 1983/84. I am now 34 years old and have just last week found my sash which is so heavy with all the medals I won. Most of them are 1st. I would love to hear more about the band - please feel free to contact me! Kind regards Rhonda

Hi Liz, This is a complete blast from the past!! I was one of the original members of the band way back, when my Grandad, Clifford Gammond started it all off! I still have my Sash's all with 1st medals sewn on them. I also remember helping to lay down and roll flat the practice ground that we used, as well as travelling to Alexandra Palace for the Championships! We were quite a large Band, and had some 144 reserve members!!! I am now 40yrs old, and still have fond memories, of those days, and meeting all the other Jazz Bands and their members. If you want any more information, let me know.
