We are most grateful to Jamie Saunders, son of Peter and Ann Saunders (stalwarts of Blewbury), for having made a donation to the band. When Jamie, a former French Horn player, was told of the band’s fundraising challenge by his mother he immediately made a donation to be used towards the purchase of instruments for brass clubs at Blewbury School and Hagbourne School.
Jamie: It’s never too late to start playing again, whether with a band or orchestra! Blewbury Brass Band has several “resurrected” players who didn’t play for many (eg 25+) years.
The Band played both at the Remembrance Service in St Michael’s Church, Blewbury, and then later at the Blewbury War Memorial. Andrew Slater played the Last Post and Reveille.
We’re delighted to announce a Free Concert on Sunday 9 September 2012, provisionally from 2 o/c – 4 o/c, at Tickers Folly Bandstand, Boham’s Lane, Blewbury.
Bring a rug, and enjoy listening to your local brass band. Bring your children as well, to play on the playground swings, slide and climbing frames…and to make raucous noises on a full range of brass instruments!
