November 21 Following auditions we are pleased to announce the appointment of David Nicholson as our new MD and we are busy preparing for Butlins.

September 21 Sadly we have to announce that our Musical Director Jonathan Fearn has resigned from his position with effect from 30 September due to a change to his role at work. We are therefore recruiting for a new MD and will commence auditions in October.  Expressions of interest can be made to the band manager, accompanied by a CV by email to philjwroe@aol.com no later than 30 September
