The Dereham Band is currently cellebrating a banding milestone. Mr. Derrick Woods has just notched up 60 years unbroken service with the band. :clap: Joining as a fresh faced young man in 1951 Derrick has been under the baton of 13 conductors and played in 5 different band rooms. A thorougly "good bandsman" Derrick has always played Eb Bass and we often wonder how he finds to puff. He has always enjoyed the social side of banding, especialy the bands links to the Bergstadt Musikanten in Ruthen Germany. The Dereham band are proud to have Derrick as a member and look forward to his company for many years to come.
