For the last 16 years Coxhoe Banner Group have marched through Durham with the Coxhoe Banner to Durham Big
Sadly, we have to report that due to the need for essential maintenance, the banner is no longer fit to parade.
The Banner Group have reluctantly had to accept that the Coxhoe banner can’t attend the Gala this year, and there won’t therefore have a band for an Eve of Gala concert.
The Banner Group have, however, just heard that their bid to the National Lottery Awards for All Community Funding has been successful for creation of a new replica banner and also for repairs to the existing banner to preserve it for future generations. We look forward to seeing the Coxhoe banner back next year, and the Banner Group hope to continue to have the support of the residents of Coxhoe.
