On the 9th August 2010 the band will bid farewell to John Berry (known to many as "John Canoe"). John has been studying at Lancaster University and has been a valuable member of the band for the last two years. He is a versatile player, often turning up with several instruments and offering to play whatever we need on the occasion.
John has recently auditioned successfully for a position as musician in the Army and passed the final acceptance interview last week. He will be sorely missed and all his colleagues in the band wish him good luck with his new career.
We hope that he will visit us when he is on leave.
