Christmas Message from Wingates Band

As 2017 comes to an end with a few spots of carolling left in us at Asda & Tesco Middlebrook, Horwich we would like to say a few thank yous...

To all those who have given so generously in both time & money to support us to ensure this band continues well into the new year.
To the band players who have worked hard, laughed and been out in all weathers showing commitment to music ,each other and the band
The committee and officers of the Band who keep the show on the road , and work tirelessly through the year, often unacknowledged
Our musical director Paul Andrews who continues to drive the band forwards with commitment and passion.
The families and friends of the band who helped out with collecting, photos , moving gear , taxi service or just the tolerance of the time playing takes up.
The organisations and individuals who have invited us to play at so many varied and interesting events
And finally our audiences. The hundreds of hours of practice etc would be pointless without someone to hear it. Our audiences have braved rain, snow, traffic and we have had some wonderful feedback from so many.

We wish you all a peaceful and happy Christmas and New Year.
