We’re delighted to reveal our new logo that will take us forward into our new era!

We’ve stayed faithful to our previous badge, but given it a slightly more modern twist.

Our badge was originally based on the Washington family crest. A relative of the first US President George Washington, Sir John Washington, lived in Chancery Lane in the town, and his wife is buried in the Church of St James. Sir John was brother to George Washington’s great-grandfather.

Our new badge continues to retain Thrapston’s link to George Washington. We’re justly proud of our long heritage, so have also included 1858 in our logo, the year the band founded.

As we embark into contesting in 2020, we hope our new badge will bring us lots of luck!
