Leanne Rewcastle resigned from the Band.
The Band took part in the 125th Durham Miners Gala today and had a fantastic time, the Band performed very well. They played Fame outside of the County Hotel which went down very well and then marched back out to it later on which went down really well. On the evening, the Band had their annual Fancy Dress BBQ which although down on numbers, it was a great night. (Photos are on the 2009 Section of the Photos Page).
Bob Dingle made his debut for the Band tonight, playing at the ATC Concert in Durham. Also playing in the concert with the Band was Christian, who came all the way from Switzerland. Christian plays in the same Brass Band as Daniel, our Bass Trombone player, and has come across to take part in the Durham Miners Gala. We are expecting another player on Friday Night from Switzerland.
The Band welcomed Bob Dingle to their ranks tonight after moving up from the learners section. Bob has taken the 2nd Trombone position and the Band are very pleased to welcome him.
