Au Revoir's and Role Swaps

Mark Snowden has stepped down from the Soprano seat after nearly 4 years on front row and a successful 2 years on Soprano. Mark is having a break from playing to concentrate on his new job as head of music at a Salford school. He has been a great bandsman and will be sorely missed. Dave Johnson said on behalf of the band, "we wish him good luck and look forward to meeting up with him at the next band curry night”.

Set to replace Mark is bumper up cornet player Adrian Horn. Adrian, famous for his 'screamer' high notes played his first concert on sop with the band on Saturday night at Brass and Abba and did a first class job considering he was playing on b flat cornet only last week at Whit Friday.

Other changes see Percussionist Craig Harper take a hard earned break. Craig has a young family and is finding balancing home life, work and band a struggle, but we hope he is not away from the band for too long.

Administration changes following the band's recent AGM see Dave Johnson stepping down as band chairman being replaced by long standing committee member Peter Cookson. The band would like to thank Dave for his hard work over the past few years although Dave will not be getting off lightly as he will be continuing in his other role as Sponsorship Liaison Officer.
