A new year…
Well we survived the joyous occasion that was Christmas – what a busy time, nonetheless enjoyable and rewarding.
Carols around the town centre was slightly disrupted by the snow, as we couldn’t get hold of our carol books which we play from! They were stuck in Templecombe, and also many band members couldn’t get out from the villages for some of the Saturday engagements. Nonetheless we did entertain and enjoy playing for the punters of Sherborne on many other occasions – my personal favourite – Christmas Eve. We hope you enjoyed it too.
Perhaps the most lovely and most rewarding time to play carols was on Boxing day at the two hospitals. We played for patients at Sherborne’s Yeatman hospital and Yeovil District Hospital. It was a joy to see the patients reaction to the Christmas tunes and also to play some requests!
At Yeovil we played for a member of the band who was in the hospital – he didn’t know we were coming and I think he was pleasantly surprised! Also, we ventured to the children’s ward, which was really nice.
Well, a new year and a busy one for the band – first off is Yeovil Entertainment contest on February 5th, where we hope to wow the punters and adjudicators with our fantastic programme of wild and whacky tunes. Also there is the Regional Area Championships in Torquay in March where we hope to maintain our Championship status.
Will post pictures and videos of the progress of the band throughout the coming, somewhat exciting year, so keep coming back! In the mean time, remember to keep up on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and ofcourse… the website! www.sherbornetownband.co.uk
Over and out.
