Ellisons is proud to continue its support of the Youth Awards which is now in its third year, by sponsoring the Arts Award

The winner this year was The Colchester Scout Band which is to celebrate its 30th birthday in 2008.

The band is no newcomer to the awards as they have in fact played at this awards ceremony for the past two years and gave a further impressive performance for the entertainment of those present in 2007!
The Band was the first non-military band to perform at the Menon Gate memorial at Ypres in Belgium and the youngsters have proved themselves worthy ambassadors for both the Scout movement and the Youth of Colchester. They have travelled and played throughout Europe, with the ages of members of the band ranging from 8 years of age and upwards.
