Review of September 2014 to February 2015

The Last Night of the Proms 2014 concert attracted a large audience at Ellesmere Port Civic Hall. The band was able to make a substantial donation to the Army Benevolent Fund and The MS society.

Other events in 2014 included

  • The Remembrance Day Service in November 2014 at Hawarden
  • The Trees of Life service in December 2014 at the Countess of Chester Hospital.
  • A Christmas music performance at Blakemere
  • A Bob Mehldrum workshop day in September 2014

In November 2014 we also said a massive thank you to Ian Robinson who stood down as Musical Director and a warm welcome to our newly appointed MD, Neil Watson.
