We are looking forward to welcoming our friends from Midland, Michigan USA for the week and we also have a couple of concerts planned: 'Brass on the Grass' will be held at 13:00 on Bank Holiday Monday 25 May and another concert will be held in Saddleworth, at Uppermill Methodist Church, at 14:00 on Saturday 30 May.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our much loved E-flat bass player and long-standing band secretary Edmund Pike.
Edmund joined the band in the 1980s and threw himself into it with great enthusiasm, soon taking on the role of band secretary, working tirelessly and enthusiastically in this position until his death. Edmund worked both through bad times and good and it is certain that the band has been greatly enriched by his efforts.
A man of great intellect and humour, Edmund was an excellent spokesman for the band and he will be missed by everyone who knew him.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Barbara, who has been an enthusiastic supporter of the band, and their family, at this difficult time.
May he rest in peace.
