Yesterday, at Canford School Regatta, was the last official engagement of our percussionist, Dafydd. The youngest member of the band has been keeping the rest of us in time for several years. Now Dafydd is taking time out to concentrate on A Levels and then is off to Loughborough University in October for new adventures. He will be very much missed, as will his Dad and roadie, Nick, who has been so supportive over the years. We hope he will visit us during university holidays.
All the very best Dafydd!
