THE VALLEY, Anguilla, The Royal Anguilla Police Force Community Band has been presented with several musical instruments, maintenance kits and accessories.
Making the presentation Governor Tim Foy challenged the members to raise the standard of the band to become the leading community band in the region and to become a marketing musical option.
