Summer has started!
Band AGM – 16th March
The band welcomed a couple of new additions to the committee and said a very big thank you and farewell to outgoing treasurer Philip, who has maintained the accounts for the band over the past three years. Philip is retiring from the band to further enjoy his beautiful gardens, and the band wish him all the best.
South West Brass Band Regional Championships – 14th March
Brass banders throughout the South West descended on Torquay to put their skills to the test, and the lovely Devon hills reinforced the sentiment of the fourth section test piece – ‘An English Pastorale’ by Dean Jones. Despite 4barsrest’s best predictions, the band came 16th, although returning to Gloucestershire with a comment sheet full of praise and achievable targets to work toward. The band would like to extend warm thanks to everyone who made the day possible, not least to guest conductor Chris, who kindly stood in for Paul.
