This was the last performance by Adam as Musical Director Adam has decided to resign.
We have so much to thank Adam for since he took up the reins again at the start of the year. He has worked tirelessly, not only to bring the band up to the standard that won us a place in the National Finals, but also in ensuring that we have had appropriate music, often revising parts at the last minute, to get us through the summer season. We send him into the future with our heartfelt thanks and our very best wishes.

Remarks from Adjudicators
"I thoroughly enjoyed your performance. Well done!" "A really enjoyable performance"
A wonderful result for Adam and The Band
Summary of the day at the Festival. Due to the ice and snow on the previous days, we were the only musical group to attend. It was our good fortune that the due to the weather the adjudicator was Howard Evans who has adjudicated at many Brass band championships at the highest level After the performance he gave a master class in Contest piece preparation and brass technique. The constructive criticism which Howard provided gave everyone a lift; everything Howard pointed out made perfect sense and has raised our confidence for next Saturday immensely. We would like to offer heartfelt thanks for listening to us; for taking the time to talk us through the piece section by section, and for providing us individually with suggestions and guidance for the Contest
Howard listening to the test piece giving us valuable guidance
