Firstly, many apologies to anyone who may have viewed the website over the past few months with no updates and current information available. Things are returning to normal and it is anticipated that this website will now be updated on a regular basis with news and other matters concerning the band and our concerts etc.
The past year 2021, was a stop/start affair for the band as a whole with us managing to fulfill some engagements and at least getting back to rehearsing on a more regular basis. Our Christmas engagements were curtailed by the arrival of the Omicron variant but as things seem to be easing off a little, we look forward and confident that 2022 will see some sort of normality returning to the band.
We have been fortunate to have retained almost all of our membership and have good numbers around the band. We are particularly looking for BBb bass players and a Soprano Cornet but anyone who is looking for a friendly band will be made very welcome.
The engagement list for the year is beginning to fill up and we can be seen at a number of venues around the County as well as our trip to Hyde Park Bandstand once more. Further details will be added to the website but these will include concerts and appearances at St. Bartholomew’s Church, Herne Bay, a Jubilee Celebration at The King Ethelbert Inn at Reculver, Woodchurch Church, Deal Memorial Bandstand, a Charity concert for Follicular Lymphoma, Battles for Victory Show at Quex Park, Birchington as well as Hyde Park, London as previously mentioned. More will undoubtedly come in as we go through the coming months.
Thank you for everyone’s continued support and we very much hope to see you at our concerts this year – please keep an eye on the website for further information.
