    I can't describe how old that makes me feel to admit that. Previous band is the Ancient Order of Forseters band (now Foresters Brass 2000 or something)

    I've been with St Agnes for about 10 years now . Unfortunately I'm going to have to leave in a couple of years time, when (and if) I go off to uni ...I'm sure I'll be back for the Christmas and Summer engagements though !

    Our current conductor started off on the back row during the mid-late 1960s, moving up through the ranks to become condutor in 1990 - now that's commitment!!
