FROM THE ARCHIVES:

An extract from ‘Clitheroe in its Railway Days’ by Stephen Clarke

     The Catholic Band was formed in the year 1859 and was founded by Fr Bird and C.J.B.Trappes Esq.  The first band was a Fife and Drum one and gained two prizes, one at Belle Vue, Manchester, and the other at the opening of Moor Park, Preston.  Ultimately it became a reed band and subsequently a brass one.  The brass band obtained three prizes, two firsts at Leyland and one at Padiham, all in the same year.  The first band room was at the old school in Lowergate, but ultimately through the kindness of Mr Trappes, a splendid room was placed at their disposal behind Theyton House, Church Street.  Shortly after Mr Trappes removal to Manchester in the year 1887, Mr Trappes handed over the band’s property to Rev Fr Hartell SJ.  On this occasion the band, through the generosity of Mr Trappes, were regaled at Gisburn with an excellent dinner, and an enjoyable evening was spent.

The late Mr Charles Duckett was the first bandmaster, and held the position for upwards of 20 years, and was the recipient on the 10th August 1869 of a handsome silver snuff box presented to him by Mr Trappes on the 10th anniversary of the band’s existence.  Mr Michael Ducket, his son succeeded him, and was also presented in June 1879 by Mr Trappes with a time-piece, in recognition of 20 years services as bandmaster, he having, like his father proved an able bandmaster.
