In March 1993 the Westmorland Gazette published an article Headed "Bill puts Burneside Band on the road" accompanied by a photograph of Bill Turton and Peter Crawford. The article read:
"That was until a mate (Peter) wandered into Burneside Post Office where Bill's wife is postmistress and the two made plans- for a village brass band. It didn't matter that around 26 players were needed and that the instruments cost the earth. But in true Last of the Summer wine style, nothing seemed insurmountable." The article ended thus:
"Bill and Peter's little scheme might have started as a little joke but the hot air turned into a strong wind- just enough to fuel a Brass Band."
