March 2016: Farewell to Steve Mattock and Paul Dunning
Hyde Band Chairman and Bass player, Steve Mattock, announced his retirement from the band at the AGM in March 2016. Steve has been a stalwart of the band for a great many years, taking on a number of roles including bandmaster and chairman. He will be sorely missed, but we wish him well in the future and hope he now has more time to enjoy his other hobbies and past times.
We were also very sad to lose our talented euphonium player, Paul Dunning, who moved out of the area at the end of last year. We wish him and his family well in their new home and hope to find a permanent replacement very soon.
