R I P Reg Moon

It is extremely sad to have to write another RIP within only a few days of the last one.  Although Reg hadn't played for a while, he was always on hand to help out as a conductor.

We shall miss him very much indeed, not only for his help and expertise, but also for his wit and dry sense of humour. Alas, another fine player and a true gentleman has been lost to the banding world.

We will be playing at his funeral on Friday 1st May, and our thoughts are with Esme and the family.

R I P Fred Williams

On Friday 10th April, band members gathered in St Michael's church, Abergele, to bid a fond farewell to Fred Williams. They accompanied the hymns during the service, and a small group played the "bandsman's hymn" - Deep Harmony - at the graveside.

Fred had played cornet since the age of 12 and had been principal cornet with one of the RAF bands during his National Service. He had also played in several local bands,  playing cornet and flugel with Beulah for the past eight years. He was a well respected and much loved member of the band, and will be sadly missed by everyone.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Gwyneth and the family at this sad time.
