MANY EVENTS ARE BEING PLANED FOR 2018 MAYBE THE BIGGEST WILL BE THE GREAT PILGRIMAGE 90.
Many Standard Bearers attending will have never carried a standard before, for this great occasion all standard bearers will need to reach a competent level and they should attend the school to prepare and train for this.
If you know of any one who is going to GP90 please pass on details of the Association and our dates for next year.
Of course if you are not attending GP90 that's no excuse to NOT join us next year.
It's not all marching round and round a room, we will be offering more one to one tuition as well as the usual basic movements and drill training, including how to slope the standard, dips and of course the dreaded slow march and quick march.
If you want to know more and any other requests or suggestion, contact details are on this page.
