There is now a fantastic website created by the Azook Community Interest Company called Cornish Memory which contains numerous photographs and media clips from times gone by at http://cornishmemory.com/


There are several photos of Gweek Silver Band, a few of which are linked below, and also a recording from a 1980’s radio broadcast featuring former player Mike Jose. The website is being added to constantly, so type Gweek (or any other subject you are interested in) into the Search box at the top of the page and browse through the results - Have fun, you may be some time!
