December 2009

Another sad occasion was the passing of one of the band’s founder members, Andy Greig. Son of former founder of the band and former Head of the Music Service David Greig, Andy was 43 years of age and had suffered from cancer for two years. A memorial service took place at the City Church in which members of Stantonbury and MK Brass (Senior & Development) bands played, with Carol Jarvis (a supportive friend) playing “Autumn Leaves”. Our condolences go to wife Sara and all the family.

We had the usual flurry of carolling in various venues in Milton Keynes with the highlight being the annual Christmas Celebration Concert in Olney Church on 12th December, with guests being The Music Service’s Gospel Choir. Some 300 people attended.
