- Best 3rd section band at Diggle, Scouthead and Lydgate,
- 2nd best 3rd section band at Greenfield,
- 4th overall at Friezland.
This places Hawk Green at 15th overall (out of 129 bands) in Saddleworth!

Hawk Green News March April 2016
As Hawk Green Band prepare for the busy Christmas Period, please have a read of our latest Newsletter. It covers information regarding our latest concerts and competitions but most importantly, it provides a tribute to our President of the Band.
We received very sad news in November that Jack Turnball had passed away, which has had a big impact on the band. Jack had been involved with Marple Bands for around 50 years, and more recently was still attending car boot sales on Saturday mornings to raise funds for the bands. He really will be missed.
