Welcome return to a new recruit

VBS Poynton Band would like to welcome cornet player Peter Weaver back to the band. Peter left the band a few years ago to take up a job in America. Peter will be returning to his familiar 'third man down' chair.

As Peter joins we say goodbye to back row cornet player Rachel Hall who has left the band to pursue other hobbies and ventures.
Speaking on behalf of the band Dave Johnson told A4B, "I would like to welcome Pete back to the band, he's a fantastic asset and we are thrilled that he has chosen to come back to our band family! Saying goodbye is always difficult especially when the players have been committed as much as Rachel. She has been a brilliant asset to our band and I wish her all the best.

Speaking about the band, Dave told us "This year has been a fantastic year for the band given that out of four contests with MD Neil Samuel, we have finished in the prizes at all bar one. We've also performed at some real high profile concerts, including one for local charity 'The Together Trust' that saw the band perform with ex Wicked star Zoe Rainey. Watch this space, I believe this year is the start of more good things to come"
