Flugel player, Martin Holliss attended his last rehearsal tonight before his move away to Bradford-on-Avon next week. In his ‘honour’ the band adopted a special uniform of Martin-style checked shirts and Martin masks!
Martin has been with the band for well over twenty years and is respected as a player and as a tireless worker behind the scenes. He played a very large part in revitalising the band in recent years and making it so vibrant and forward-looking.
Martin’s contribution to the band, his good humour and his friendly, cheerful and optimistic demeanour will be greatly missed. He has promised to come back and play with the band whenever we need him (and this will be often!).
Martin, you will be greatly missed but we all wish you and Liz every happiness in your new home and new community.
