The Band's membership
comprises people of all ages and from all walks of life. Some members have been
with the band since its formation in 1984 but new players are joining all the time.
Some have come along to the band having taken up their instrument again after a
break of several years, and although arrive feeling rather "rusty"
they soon get back into the swing of things!
The band also has an active
social side with an annual dinner, ten-pin bowling nights, picnics, etc. Not
forgetting the odd drink or two down the pub after rehearsals on a Tuesday!
