Congratulations all round

Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Bandmaster Awards, Gilly Warr and Catherine Lancaster, pictured with our retiring M.D. Brian Scott.Catherine was awarded Most Improved Player, and Gilly was chosen as the member who had gone the extra mile for the band over the last year.

This was such an appropriate award as Gilly has decided to step down as Band Secretary and handover the reins to Sandra who has volunteered to take over. The band will miss Gilly and her meticulous organisation very much and we hope that she won’t mind us turning to her for advice when required. (She also always seems to be able to find a spare tie or jacket at a moments notice.)

Thank you, Gilly, and enjoy your playing, and well done, Catherine – we look forward to hearing you play throughout the year.

Thanks must also go to Brian who has also decided to step down as M.D. and hand over to David Tozer who will lead the band into 2019. We are delighted that Brian will continue to play with the band – not least because of his amazing ability to play several instruments and fill in when required.
