Alun Prest telling jokes

Today the band played the end of season concert at Saltburn Bandstand. Showcasing no less than five soloists, including Amy Merser who is just ten years old, the band’s performance was warmly received by an enthusiastic audience. Alun was, once again, on top form with many jokes both old and new!

Soprano player Keith Morley played his last concert with the band today before retiring. Chairperson Chris Robertson gave a short speech thanking Keith for his dedicated service to the band and presented him with some leaving presents together with all of the members’ warmest wishes for the future.

Also at today’s concert the secretary of the Durham County Brass Band Association, Mavis LLoyd, presented Peter Woodcock (cornet) with a certificate of recognition for 40 years of dedicated playing. Well done Peter!
