    Hathern band supports 5 Remembrance Sunday services

    Remembrance day is as important now as it ever has been and it is on occasions like this that a band organisation can make its biggest contributions to the community.

    This year the Hathern Band Organisation was pleased to be able to give support to the services held in five different towns and villages in the area.

    On sunday morning the B Band, conducted by Michael Cooper, provided the music for the service held at Loughborough Carillon, while the A Band under Dave Newman attended the Hathern village church. Jonathan Stevenson played the Last Post and Reveille in Hathern.

    On Sunday afternoon a smaller group from the A Band provided the music for the service and parade in Shepshed with Jonathan again playing the Last Post and Reveille

    Two other members of the band attended services in other villages. Lesley Bentley played the Last Post and Reveille for the village of Bottesford in the Vale of Belvoir while Susan Robinson played Last Post and Reveille at Long Whatton.

    Fulham were out again in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

    We had all the usual supporters on parade, plus at least 24 motor cyclists from a local chapter who obviously recognised the importance of the parade.

    An amazing sight, I'm told. (Didn't see it - was playing bass at the front!)

    We had more than usual out on Sunday morning, helped probably by the mild weather, with an encouraging number of younger people - Hadleigh's is only a small village ceremony, with the main Castle Point remembrance taking place on Canvey in the afternoon.

    We also got a band together for an outdoor ceremony in Morrisons' car park followed by an indoor service in our hall on the 11th itself. this has been established for a few years now, and has made quite an impact on those around.
