Christmas Break

Just a reminder that last Wednesday, 6th December, was our last practice in the bandroom for this year.  But don't forget we have quite a few jobs coming up between now and Christmas.  We will return on Wednesday 10th January 2018.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all

RIP Jeff Hughes

It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our Honorary President, Jeff Hughes, on Saturday 5th August 2017.  Jeff was a founder member of the band and its chairman until failing health forced him to resign earlier this year.  Our thoughts are with Liz at this difficult time.  Funeral arrangements will be posted here when available

Abergele Community Party

The Dayband were out again on Tuesday at the Abergele Community Party, organised by Abergele Dementia Friendly Community.  We all had a great time, playing loads of old tunes like "Two Lovely Black Eyes", "Down at the Old Bull and Bush", and "Keep right on to the end of the Road"  from selections called "The Gay 90s" (1890s, not 1990s!) and Florrie Forde's Favourites.  Everyone there joined in the singing, and some danced as we played.  What a brilliant afternoon.  Thank you to the organisers for inviting us, and it's great to hear that Abergele has now been officially recognised as a Dementia Friendly Community.  Photographs of the day are in our Gallery and on the Facebook page.

Good Friday 2017

The Dayband plus a few others played for the annual Llandudno CYTUN Service outside Holy Trinity Church.  It was great that Big Jim was also able to be with us.  That corner was just as cold as always, but at least we had our big coats to keep us warm.  And the rain (more or less) kept off!

Annual General Meeting

The AGM was held on Wednesday 25th January 2017.

Jeff Hughes, Founder member and Chairman since the band's inception in 2000, unfortunately had to resign due to ill-health.  In recognition of his outstanding services to the band, he was appointed Honorary President, and a framed certificate confirming this was presented to him at his home the following weekend.  His wife, Liz, who was also a founder member of the band, and had been Secretary for several years and a valued committee member, was presented with an engraved crystal paperweight.
