    It must be something in the water.

    Here at Emley Band we are overjoyed to announce the unprecedented occurrence of 5 (yes five!!) weddings in the offing within the band. 4 this year and 1 in 2012!!

    Firstly Jenny Ehrhardt (2nd Baritone) is to get hitched to her intended Andrew Stollery (non playing but ever so enthusiastic supporter), closely followed by myself (Principal Cornet) and Deb (Solo Horn) when we will be jetting off to sunny Mauritius this summer. While we’re away Paul Dyson (Eb Bass) will make an honest woman (if you can make a Welsh woman honest!?) of Emma Johns (Flugel Horn), and last to do the deed this year are Andrew Garrett (Back row cornet squad member) and Sally Shacklock (Solo Baritone).
    Finally (by no means least, and just announced this last weekend) are Adam Clewes (Principal Eb Bass) and Felicity Ward (Solo Trombone) who will tie their knot sometime in the summer of 2012.

    Just wait for the baby boom, it’ll be babysitter heaven on rehearsal nights in Emley.

    Great news with all the weddings. As mentioned above if there is a baby boom to accompany this then you'll also have a ready made junior band right there.
    Don't forget you'll need new hats for every wedding.

    If ever there was evidence needed that brass bands were an aphrodisiac!

    Note to self :-

    That should do the trick ;-)

    the only thing in the air around Emley is Wiggy's excess! Unless your on about 2nd Man down's legs but that doesn't usually happen until the summer :tongue:
