Alan Bobs
Guest Bass Trombone

On the 14th January Alan Bobs passed away after many months suffering from a rare form of cancer. Alan was a good friend of the band and regularly helped us out on bass trombone both at contests and concerts, and joined us on both tours to Germany. He was a talented musician and one of the most genial individuals that one could ever meet. Our deepest sympathies go to all his family and friends.

On the 23rd January members of the band played  at the Service of Celebration of Alan's life in Tewkesbury Abbey, as part of a combined band with members of the band of the Gloucestershire Constabulary. As well as the hymns "Lord of All Hopefulness" and "Thine be the Glory", the combined bands played "Deep Harmony", "Evening Hymn and Last Post", and one of Alan's favourite marches "Old Comrades".
