The Band was founded by Slinfold resident John Reed in 1978. John was keen to maintain the Sussex tradition of village bands.
In 2015 Chris Youngman, SCB Publicity Officer, interviewed some of the Band's founding members and their families to find out more about the Band's origins and history.
A brief history of the Band can be found on the following pages:
