Band Person of the Year

Colin Gilderthorp was voted Band Person of the year. Colin is our band librarian and also does so many jobs which might go unnoticed. He has shelved our new storage room, made cymbal stands, enlarged parts, used his van to move instruments… just to name a few things. Colin is also the only person (alongside the MD) who can get the big timp out of the cupboard! As well as all the jobs, Colin has learnt to play horn. He initially was going to buy a bugle so that he could go to Belgium and honour his Grandfather who died in the trenches during the First World War. However, after a few sessions at our alternate Wednesday group, he changed his order to a nice new sparkly horn. We’re really pleased he did and thank him for all he does.
