The weekend of 17th/18th September was a busy weekend for the band, with a concert raising funds for the RAF Association as part of their Wings Appeal, and leading the parade and church service for the Battle of Britain commemoration service in Douglas.

The concert on the Friday night is an annual event the band take great pleasure in taking part in. This year we were joined by The Regal Singers and soloist Catriona Mills. It was good too see a large audience which enjoyed a varied programme from the RAF March Past to a medley of songs from Les Miserables.


However, we were also sorry to be saying farewell to our MD John Collings who has decided to 'hang-up' his baton. Band Secretary, Simon Court said, "We'd like to thank John for all his hard work and encouragement and wish him well".
