Hot on the heals of Tara Hardman signing from Leyland, the band are please to announce that David Houghton has joined the band on Bb Bass. David brings a wealth of experience with him having played for Drighlington and Pemberton Old, as well as conducting Golborne for a number of years. MD Neil Samuel commented: "I'm thrilled that David has joined the band. He's a young, enthusiastic player with an awful lot to offer the band". The band would also like to welcome Anna Spedding back to the princpal cornet chair after a short spell resting up. During the month of April Anna was involved in a minor accident where she damaged part of her mouth and also fractured her right wrist.
