    Just to say that Colin came for audition at Kippax a few years ago, and although he didn't get the job, ( I wish he had !) we were very impressed with him.
    I reckon any band with Colin as MD will do well.
    Good luck to you all,
    - Wilky

    Nice to see you back Colin...I hope all goes well for you. I would gladly join you again if I was younger but at 69 next week and living 34 miles away I guess I will give it a miss. I did enjoy playing at Hayley's wedding and meeting up with some of the old band. Good luck mate to you and all the band. :clap:

    Just to clarify that this was a long time ago, well before the (Re) appointment of our current MD Keith Wardle who is a star man !

    It was a shame that Ammanford had to drop out of the Areas last year, I hope you are able to get a band together to go this year. All the best with the rebuilding!!
