Waiting List

Our Parent and Toddler Groups have found it necessary to introduce a waiting list now that attendances have reached what is considered to be the maximum which can be catered for and, at the same time, maintain a comfortable and safe environment for the children. However, waiting list times are usually short as children leave regularly to attend school and pre-school activities. The groups meet on Monday (mainly music) and Friday (mummy and me), between 10am and 12 noon. Parents wishing to register should contact us. Leader Sue Willard looks forward to hearing from you.

Band leadership change

For the past two years the Band has been under the leadership of Deputy Bandmaster Nigel Lockwood. For personal reasons Nigel has found it necessary to relinquish that position with immediate effect. The Corps, and the Band in particular, wish to thank Nigel for the dedication and hard work shown during his service in that role.

For the time being the leadership of the Band will be in the hands of Bandmaster Ray Maycock (Rtd) who takes the baton for his third spell as conductor.
