    To all who have known me over the years as both a player, teacher conductor, and occassionally an examiner, I would just like to let you know that due to health reasons (those that have seen me lately know of this) I have stepped down from any commitments to do with music, I would like to thank Kirkby Colliery Welfare Band for having me as their Musical Director for the last three and a half years, we have had a good time and started to achieve the results I knew we would, to all the youngsters I have taught again thanks for making it enjoyable to teach you.

    I hope in the future to be around music again but for now I am due to have spinal surgery and I am taking six months off at the least.

    I do hope when my health allows to attend some concerts and contests, maybe if I am lucky I will be at Skegness to see Kirkby defend their title as Miners Champions (4th Sect).

    I have enjoyed many many years around brass bands and have made many good friends.

    I'm sure we would all want to wish you well over the coming period. I trust the surgery is successful and that everything turns out alright.
