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.
