LGB would like to thank Avonbank Brass Band of Evesham, in particular Carole Smith, for lending us their bandroom for our pre-contest rehearsal on Saturday.
Not only did Carole provide very comprehensive instructions meaning nobody got lost on the way, the band also laid on tea and biscuits for us all after our rehearsal (including Jammie Dodgers) which were much appreciated.
Ian liked the bandroom so much he wanted to take it with him – but the rest of us will make do with stealing some of your ‘excuses’ as pinned to the notice board (we particularly enjoyed ‘I got it right that time because I was miming’, and ‘I have my varifocals on’, both of which will no doubt be quoted at All Saints over the next few LGB rehearsals). We liked them so much we took a picture for future reference – hope you don’t mind Avonbank!
If you’re in the Evesham area, why not check out the Avonbank website and see if you can hear them play – they’ve just been promoted to the second section so you won’t be disappointed.
