Congratulations Crawf and Debs, may you have many happy years together.
I take it the band will be performing at special rates for you and that the special day will be carefully planned around the bands busy calendar!
PS who asked who?!
Myself and Bassboneshep have recently moved to Bidford-on-Avon in Warwickshire and are looking for a band, preferably contesting, to play with.
I play second horn (although I could just about manage 1st horn) and as his name suggests Bassboneshep plays Bass Tombone.
Are there any bands out...
Help, I'm getting desperate!
I am looking for a mobile hairdresser who works in the Leeds/Bradford area and don't know where to look.
I've the yellow pages but how doe I know if they are any good? I've asked all my friends and none of them use a mobile hairdresser.
Does anyone on here...
Our 2 cats are insured with Tesco.
When the renewal came through in March it had gone up quite a bit and I thought about cancelling it. Fortunately I decided to keep the insurance.
This summer one of the cats had to have loads of blood tests and a thyroidectomy that would have cost over...
I was playing for Yeadon Band when they did the inaugural performance on the band stand. The band arrived but no chairs did, luckily some of us lived locally and had to go home and gte our dining room chairs and deck chairs. It was a right farce.
We put the percussionist on the band...
Myself and Bassboneshep have just returned from a fantastic 2 week camping holiday in Cornwall.
The campsite we stayed at had free entertainment most evenings including concerts by St Dennis Brass Band every Monday.
I would just like to say thank you to any members of the band that...
At last nights AGM Emley Band voted unanomously to purchase a set of walking out jackets and ties.
I have received a veru competitive quote from a company called Leisurewear Direct based in Buxton.
Has anyone had any dealings with them in the past, are their jackets good quality?
At Emley we are fortunate to have a lovely secretary and her daughter who regularly look after the 2 youngest supporters of the band, Issy and Annabelle. Margaret goes to most of the contests and doesn't seem to mind standing outside the door whilst pushing the pushchair.
She also babysits...
We've just changed the band'd insurance from Allianz Cornhill to BBIS.
Quotes from both were virtually the same but we changed as we decided to have public liability insurance that AC don't do.
BBIS were excellent and processed the forms by return - highly recommended.
I'll be at home looking after my gorgeous 7 week old daughter.
I wish I could be going but it just ain't possible this year.
Maybe next year I'll be able to go if I can persuade Bassboneshep stay at home!
As treasurer at Emley the income from subs is vital.
We are lucky to own our bandroom and the subs go towards the general running of the band and the bandroom. By the time you add up water, council tax, gas, electricity, instrument and buildings insurance the monthly expenditure is quite...
Just to let you all know that our little bundle of joy called Isabelle was born at 12.59pm on Friday 1st April. (No jokes about April Fools please as she was born after midday!)
We are all doing fine and she is developing a good set of brass players lungs!
It just has to be Sean for me with Pierce coming a very close second.
He was such a dish back then but some of his outfits leave a lot to be desired especially the blue all in one swimsuit he wore in Goldfinger!
I remember going to the sex museum when I was 16.
I was on a PGL barge holiday sailing around Holland. When we stopped in Amsterdam I remember me a couple of friends being dared to go into the sex museum, so we did! I have a vague recollection of various extreemly interesting pictures and...
