I suppose it's time to go public on this one.Most band people who know me would say that whit friday is my favourite day of the year.It's like christmas day and your birthday rolled into one , and as soon as it's over, I'm looking forward to the next one.Whit friday has also been very kind to me over the years and I have been very lucky to win lots of prizes whilst conducting my old band, Parr band (two best non-championship trophies at Delph) and also with my current band ,Greenall's.SOooooo! When my fiancee, Joanne(solo horn - Greenall's) suggested we get married on whit friday, you can imagine my response!!! This year, it's going to be birthday, christmas day and wedding day all rolled into one! Joanne and I are due to marry at 10.30 a.m. on whit friday morning, then it's off for a chinese buffet at noon and onto the charabang at 3.00 p.m. bound for Saddleworth. Greenall's band will be celebrating with us and I'm sure a lot of you will will notice us on the circuit and we'll be hoping for a prize. I don't know which route we're taking yet, but we will finish in Delph where old friends from other bands will meet up with us. I can't tell you how much we are looking forward to it, and we can't think of a better way to have a wedding reception. I don't know many TMP'ers but if your'e around, say hello. I'll be in my favourite place, on my favourite day,with Joanne and the best folk in the world - band folk!!!
