The committee and players of Tongwynlais Band would like to publically thank Gareth Pritchard whole heartedly for his musical input and contribution to the development of the band over the last 4 years. It is unfortunate that the partnership had to be terminated but the band committee felt it was the right decision to make at this time. We have performed some fantastic musical interpretations at contests under Gareth’s leadership which we will always be grateful for. We would also like to express our sincere thanks to Gavin Pritchard who has contributed to some fine performances with the band. Gavin decided it was right to leave the band along side his father which we fully understand and accept. We wish both Gareth and Gavin all the best in their future endevours. The Tongwynlais band will still continue to set its standards extremely high and have some exiting projects planned for the rest of the year including a CD recording, concerts at Cardiff castle as well as a full calendar of contests including Pontins, Wychavon, Ammanford and Treorchy. An announcement will be made shortly regarding Gareth’s successor at these contests and posted on the launch of the band’s new website which will be launched next month.
