North west bandsman in hospital Popular bandsman Peter Edge is in hospital with complications with his gall bladder,his condition is serious but not critical. Peter started his playing career on cornet with the walkden band before moving onto the legendary CWS Manchester band under Alex Mortimer,he also played for the Wingates Temperance band and has probably helped out most bands in the north west area. Whilst he was on flugel horn with the Goodshaw band conductor Kevin Bolton made the famous arrangemet of ' Concerto Di Aranjuez' for him to record. I'm sure all is friends and fellow bandsmen would like to join us in wishing him a speedy recovery. If you would like to send him a message or card pm me and I will send you his address. Rach has flown back from Oman to help look after him and I wish I could be there as well, we both wish him a speedy recovery.
