Trip to Kent for band
On the weekend of the 5/6th April the band travelled to Hythe in Kent for a remembrance service and concert for the HMS Newfoundland Veterans and the HMS Collingwood Association. The hotel that the band stayed in was right on the coast overlooking the sea and the layout of the rooms was quite unusual with many of them being on two storeys. The event itself was held in Sittingbourne on the Sunday morning. The Coniston Hotel was used and is a new venue for the band. The area in which the band set up was very dark with no lighting and so it was fortunate that we had brought stand lights with us. In much the same way as last week’s concert with SAMA the concert element contained a fairly nautical theme.
