In 1968 Chairman Syd Dytham appealed to the ladies supporters - wives and mothers ot the bandsmen - to organise themselves into a ladies committee, with a view to help with the fundraising, after an all time low in the cash and expense department.

The ladies agreed more could be done for the WTB and in their first three years made their mark on the band's finances. Outstanding repairs on instruments could be done and a target for new uniforms was set. They organised cake stalls, jumble sales and bazaars. Their Old Time Dances and Sequence Dances prooved to be a great success.
