On a frosty Boxing Day morning, a few players from the band gathered to play carols around the streets of Freckleton. The rain came mid-morning, but we we able to shelter with a brew in the home of one of the villagers until the shower passed through. Playing through until lunch at Al and Diane’s, the band then played the last concert of the year at a packed Coach and Horses pub. Each year it is nice to welcome back visiting friends who played in the band and then moved away, so many thanks to Hannah and Ali for playing cornet for us today.
Thank-you to the people of Freckleton for supporting us this Christmas and throughout the year, without you we could not carry this tradition forward from year to year. Suffice to say, though, we don’t want to hear another Christmas carol for another twelve months!
