    RIP David Hills who passed away yesterday. Alongside his wife Jilly, who sadly died earlier on in the year, David did so much for local brass bands including reinvigorating the Wessex Contest.

    David and Jilly also raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity by getting the likes of Black Dyke, Grimethorpe and Brighouse down to Bournemouth for huge charity concerts.

    David & Jilly were presidents of our band and despite their commitment to their fundraising activities and the wessex association, gave us so much support, indeed until Jilly was taken ill they attended every rehearsal they could.

    They will be sorely missed by the whole banding fraternity both in the Wessex region and over the whole country.

    Thank you both for entering our lives and making them richer for it.

    Together again rest in peace

    I only knew David and Jilly for a short time, but it was long enough to know that they were lovely people and true banding enthusiasts.

    May they both rest in peace.
