So none of us predicted or could even comprehend how 2020 was going to develop. The band started the year with great successes at Butlins and the Area Brass Band Section 3 Championships, but then everything changed. The effects of Covid-19 have been felt worldwide as well as within our Band family. Although playing has been minimal, we have made every effort to stay connected with the use of trusty zoom. Our priority has always been the safety of our members but we were quickly reminded that Banding isn't just about playing. The benefits gained every week for our members mental wellbeing have never been more noticeable than when this was taken away.
As we come to the end of the year, we are tentatively looking forward to a glimmer of hope. If a successful vaccination program is delivered then we look forward to our return to playing and being a Band again.
