    Staines Brass would like to announce the departure of their MD Ian McElligott after 6 years of loyal service and hard work with the band. In this time, it has been a rollercoaster ride with a 3 year high between 2004 & 2006 by qualifying for the lower section finals, gaining a 3rd & 2nd place respectively in 2004 & 2005, then on promotion to the Championship section in qualifying for the national finals in 2006 taking 11th place.

    The band have gone through a particularly bad 18 months since and feel that it is time to make a fresh start and so are looking for a new MD in time to take the band to the L&SC Regional Championships in March.

    Ian had this to say, ‘I fully understand the bands reasons for change and support them in their future goals. I have had a very good 6 years with the band and will take a lot of fond memories away with me. I would like to take this opportunity to wish the band the very best for the future’.

    Ian will be missed within the band but I’m sure we will always keep close ties. The band would like to wish him every success with his recent appointment with Sandhurst Silver Band.
