Following the recent appointment of Jonathan Mott as Musical Director, Raunds Temperance are happy to announce further good news in that Gerry Atkins has joined filling the vacant soprano seat. Maggie Betts has made a welcome return on repiano and also Roy Bufton on top trombone and Joe Hartley has joined on 2nd trombone again filling a vacancy. In the meantime musical chairs has occurred with John Dennison moving from 3rd cornet to Eb bass!! and Greg Mason from 2nd cornet to 1st horn. MD Jonathan Mott said, "These moves and new additions means that RTB are very nearly back to full strength although a Bb bass and Euphonium player are still being sought. The uncertainty felt bt RTB over the few months has given way to a mood of optimism and excitement as we head towards life in the Championship Section from January 2007."
