Scarr Bandstand Roof

Currently  the largest project at Scarr Bandstand is the reinstatement of the roof, which was burnt down during the 1980s. Friends of Scarr Bandstand secretary Alison Collison explains; “This is complex; we need engineering drawings of the new roof before seeking planning permission. This will be undertaken by architects and engineering specialists. We have applied for a grant to cover these costs from Calor Gas Community Fund.  We only get the grant, however, if we get enough votes from the public for our project.  So please vote for ‘RAISING THE ROOF, SCARR BANDSTAND’ by going to   and clicking on ‘register to vote’.  You get 10 votes…please give them all to the Scarr Bandstand, your local, historic and precious brass band venue!”
