End of Summer Season

The band's summer season of engagements was brought to a close last night with a rather damp well blessing church service in Holymoorside.

The band would like to extend their thanks and gratitude to all the players who have helped out at various engagements over the course of the summer season.  Without whom some of the engagements would not have been possible.

Sad News

It is with great shock and sadness that the band learned today of the sudden passing of Fran Hill.

Fran joined the band as a learner in 1987 playing cornet, before moving onto tenor horn enjoying 24 years playing in the band.  During 2002 Fran was joined in the band by her husband Chris (Eb Bass) and her daughter Jo (Tenor Horn).  In 2011 Fran decided to take a break from playing.  Although she still remained an active supporter of the band, helping out behind the scenes at concerts and with collecting at Christmas.

The band extend their condolences to Fran’s husband Chris, son Tom, daughter Jo, along with the rest of her family and friends at this difficult time.

She will be sorely missed.
