The UK Paper band was formed in 1883 and was then called the Daily Chronicle Band. The original members were workers from the new paper mill built by Edward Lloyd to supply paper to his newspaper, the Daily Chronicle. Over the years the band has been called the Edward Lloyd Band, the Bowater Lloyd Band, and the Bowater Band and each name change has reflected the changes in ownership of the paper mill. It was in 1988 that the band changed its name to the UK Paper Band. Although the mill ownership has continued to change the Band is now affiliated to UK Paper Leisure Club in Remembrance Avenue, Sittingbourne.
