And the band played on … in the pouring rain… and the howling gale!

lifeboatsea (800x600)It’s Lifeboat Week in Lyme Regis and, as usual, to support the RNLI we accompanied the hymns for their Songs of Praise Service on Marine Parade yesterday afternoon. We played for half an hour beforehand and for half an hour after the service.

This year the weather was not kind to us and was quite challenging for the band, for the clergy taking the service and for the congregation.lifeboatseats (800x600)

However, we all soldiered on and hung in there. Particular mention must go to Brian our MD, Jane on baritone and Steve on cornet who all travelled significant distances for the pleasure of getting soaked. Hopefully we are now all safely home and, after hot baths all round, are busy ironing our music to get it dry and flat ready for our next concert on Marine Parade tomorrow evening.
