Lyme Regis’s Remembrance Service

Today we played at the Remembrance Service at St Michael’s Church in Lyme Regis. The church was packed, with standing room only. All local organisations were represented and we were very pleased to take part.
This service is always very moving but was particularly poignant this year as it was the last service conducted by Rev Jane Skinner who is shortly leaving the area with her husband, Rev Stephen Skinner. Jane has always been very welcoming to the band and we wish her every success in her new parish.
Following the service the parade moved to Cobb Gate where two minutes’ silence was observed and Last Post and Reveille were played to perfection by David Tozer. Luckily the rain held off and we all managed to stay dry.
Special mention to Alison Davies who conducted the band today. We are most grateful to her for her support – she did a fantastic job and we loved having her with us.
