On Sunday 17th July we played our last concert at Windsor Castle under the leadership of Roy Dignum who had been our MD for almost 20 years. Together with his wife Sarah they had been a mainstay of the band and will be sadly missed.
The day started with a coach pickup in Rayleigh, our home venue at 9:00 AM, a brief stop at Thurrock Services to pick up more band members and finally arriving at Windsor just before midday. The band then played 3 sets of music culminating in a farewell presentation to Roy and Sarah including an arrangement of Roy’s favourite tunes done by David our band chairman.
The picture on the right shows Sarah and Roy enjoying the arrangement of Roy’s favourite melodies played by the band over the years.
