In memory of Flugel player Simon Palmer, who died in September, the band decided to donate the carol collections this year to the charity MIND. A wonderful sum of £800 was given to the charity. Many thanks to the parents and friends of the band who helped in all the collections.
An excellent concert was given as usual to a large gathering at Olney Church, with guests The Ousedale Olney Ensemble and the Spectrum Brass Quintet.
Many congratulations to Euphonium player George Bruce for passing his Grade 8 exam. with distinction.
