For the first time in the bands history we have a President. At the recent annual dinner and prize presentation Edwin Cubbon was appointed Band President.

Edwin has played in the band for over 70 years and is still playing. At a meeting earlier this year it was decided the band should have a president and it was unanimously agreed that Edwin should be the first.

For more information read the Band Awards 2011.
