After a few months of not being able to maintain or view the Band Website, the Band have decided to vote in favour of moving our website to another provider. This has now happened and I am happy to say we are now back online.
A couple of things have happened in the meantime however. Firstly, John Moody resigned from the Band, John had been a good band member, also serving on the committee. The Band would like to wish John all the best for the future. Also, Nicky, one of our Bass Trombone Players, has left the Band to move down to Wales to go to University there to study for her Masters Degree. The Band would like to wish Nicky all the best for the future and hope that her Degree goes well.
After an initiative from Daniel to promote the Band at the Durham University Fresher's Day, we had a new Tenor Horn player come along to join the Band, Helen Knight. The Band would like to welcome Helen and hope that she enjoys her music making with us. We also have a few new learners in the Band. These are all adult learners so it just goes to show you are never too old to learn. Well done and thank you to all who attended the Fresher's Day to help promote the Band.
Our long serving and most excellent Secretary, Marion, has undergone some surgery and therefore is not playing at the moment, although she still turns up at the Band Room now and again to keep us all in check. The Band wish Marion a very speedy recovery and hope that it is not too long before she is back in the Solo Horn seat.
