    Following their success at the Butlins Mineworkers Open Brass Band Competition last weekend, the powers that be at the Ransome Band have releasd the following statement.

    “The Committee and Trustees of the Ransome Band take great pleasure in congratulating the players of the Band on their fantastic success in Skegness at the weekend. That the Band played at a consistently high level across the two days of the competition speaks volumes for the dedication and workrate of the band over the last few weeks.

    We would especially like to single out Elliot Darwin (Principal cornet), David Belshaw (Solo Euphonium) and John Thackray (Solo Horn) for their performances on the test-piece and Chris Jeans and Phil Johnston for their solo performances during the Entertainment programme. We would especially like to thank John who moved up to the Solo Horn chair from 1st Horn for the contest as his brother was fulfilling a long-standing commitment.

    Both the Committee and the Trustees hope that this win can provide a much needed spring-board for the band into 2005.”

    Band Manager, Sam Kind, said “After a disappointing result at Spennymoor and a fairly flat Christmas period, it was good to see the band showing bounce-back-ability at the weekend.”

    The band goes on to perform at the Majestic Theatre, Retford this weekend (29th January) before going on to concerts at the Palace Theatre, Newark (4th/5th February) and Formby Hall, Atherton (20th February).
