Flixton Band regrets to announce that Musical Director Kevin Gibbs has resigned from the band after 3 highly successful years. The Kirkby Lonsdale Contest held last Sunday, was to be Kevin’s final appearance as MD, and it certainly was a day to remember, with Flixton winning 5 trophies:- Best 3rd Section band. Best March. Best Hymn tune. Best Overall band. Prize for the Winning Conductor. Kevin said “I have had a great 3 years with Flixton Band, during which time we have achieved a formidable list of contest successes. I feel however, that the time is now right for me to move on, in order to pursue new opportunities and projects. The band is currently in good form, having recently won at Buxton, and at Whit Friday. Winning 5 trophies at Kirkby Lonsdale last Sunday, will certainly be a day I will always remember, and was a fantastic way to leave the band.” After the Kirkby Lonsdale contest was over, the members of Flixton Band presented Kevin with a farewell gift. Flixton Band would like to thank Kevin for the hard work which he has put into the development of the band over the last 3 years, and all of the band members wish him well for the future. An advertisement regarding the position of Musical Director will shortly be posted.
