    Sad news from tongwynlais

    The members of the Tongwynlais Temperance Silver Band were shocked to hear some upsetting news on Monday.

    Bryn James our musical director of the past year,was addmitted to the Royal Gloucester hospital having suffered a stroke on Sunday evening.

    Bryn has been an integral part in the recent success of the band, and the band has built up a close personal relationship with Bryn, so the news has come as a complete blow to the band.

    With less than a week before the regional contest at the Brangwyn Hall Gareth Pritchard has travelled down to South Wales to conduct the band at short notice in Bryns unfortunate absence.

    Our sincere thanks goes to Gareth Pritchard and to all the bandspeople who have offered to assist and support the band, and also to those who have passed on their warmest wishes to Bryn over the last few days.

    Bryn was also set to take Filton band to the West of England Area on Saturday.

    Ian Holmes will now be standing in for them.

    The band would like to wish Bryn a speedy and complete recovery and hope he will be able to resume as soon he is well enough.

    'MD suffers stroke of bad fortune' 4 Bars Rest.

    I think the above quote is a little distasteful in the circumstances. Ok, I know its referring to the regionals being a week or so away but i still think it is an inappropriate headline.

    Hey Guys

    To re-iterate all the messages here, on behalf of the City Of Bristol Band, where Bryn spent his previous years conducting before taking the reigns at Tongwynlais, our wishes go out to Bryn for a speedy recovery.

    It was a shock to hear that Bryn suffered a mild stroke so soon after a member of City Of Bristol (Mike Knapton), a friend of Bryn also suffered a stroke.

    I'm sure with the support of Bobby and Scott, Bryn will soon be stressing out with baton in hand once again.
