Farewell to Bryan

On Wednesday 21st September, after our weekly rehearsal, we said a sad farewell to a stalwart member of the band, Bryan Griffin. Bryan and his wife, Pauline, have emigrated to Queensland, Australia to be with their daughter and family. He hasn’t given up blowing though - he will now be a permanent member of Sunshine Brass, with whom he has played in the past whilst on holiday there.

We wish them both all the best for their new life in the sun!
