The Legion Club has donated three new bugles to the BIU Band so that newcomers may be taught how to play the instrument.

Legion Club president Bill Graham hopes that local children especially will take it up.
"We're hoping that local kids will learn the bugle and be able to play it at Anzac Day both here and in other towns such as Menindee," Mr Graham said.
The secretary of the BIU Band, Ross Mawby, is one of the few buglers still left in town and he is encouraging others to learn.
"Boys and girls and adults as well are welcome to give it a go and see whether or not they like it. I'm happy to teach them," Mr Mawby said.
Anyone wishing to learn may contact Ross Mawby on (08) 8087 9887 or send the band an e-mail to secretary@biuband.com.au.
