Tonight has seen the band have it's first social night of the year, which was a a surprise 60th party for our secretary Marion who's birthday was back in December. Although Marion thought she knew something was cracking off she didn't know that one of our cornet players Laura would be there. Unfortunately Laura left us in September due to a relocation to Leeds and spent a lot of time in Portugal with her family before moving so we didn't get a chance to say a proper goodbye. Tonight became that opportunity. You will be sorely missed in our band Laura and we wish you all the best for the future. It was a fantastic night with many more on the cards in 2018.
