I'm sad to report Owen has passed away. With deepest sympathy to Helen and all his family.
Owen was a treasured past member and supporter of Cleethorpes Band. He donated his euphonium when he could no longer play and we contest the Harden cup he presented every year. Owen wrote several articles about the band's history, you can read them on our website Cleethorpes Band History
Happy Christmas everyone
Happy Christmas Everybody
For those that aren’t already aware it is with sadness that I let you know that Ann Clark passed away last Saturday after a brief illness.
For those that didn’t know her, Ann was a great supporter of the band for many years, both as librarian and generally keeping us all in check! Her husband John played with the band and she attended rehearsals with him every week despite being very busy working as part of Barton Town Council.
Even John became ill and could no longer play both he and Ann gave a donation to the band to help us with travel costs to the Regional Contest. Sadly John passed away before we attended however in that year we qualified for the 3rd Section National Finals which was a very fitting tribute to him and something Ann was proud of. Ann left the band when John passed away but has kept in touch occasionally over the years and continued to support from a distance.
Ann's funeral will take place on Tuesday 15th November at 2pm at Woodlands Crematorium. The band hope to send a representative and will arrange a donation to the British Heart Foundation, at the request of the family.
