It is with much sadness we have to report the following death’s
Aubrey Evans, our second baritone player who has passed away suddenly. Aubrey has played with the band over many years from Bb bass to cornet, bass trombone and finally second baritone. A gentleman who loved his music and brass banding and will be missed by us all. Our thoughts are with his wife Ruth and their family.
Jim Walker, who was instrumental in reviving the band and along with his family bringing it to its current status back in the 1970’s. Jim, along with the few remaining players, put a lot of time and effort into encouraging new players to join the band and training new players to start in the band. Jim played alongside his wife and family for many years until his retirement in 1993, when he moved to Lincolnshire. But maintaining a connection with the band through his son, John. Our thoughts go to Jim’s family at this time.
