Celebrating 50 years in brass banding.
The Pyramid Studio Theatre, Palmyra Square, Warrington, WA1 1BL
It is with great sadness that the band has recently learned of the passing of Wingates stalwart, Terry Holden.
Terry, a cornet player, joined Wingates band in 1957 and continued to play with the band for over 50 years and latterly became a trustee of the band until ill health prevented him from being a more active member.
Terry was always laughing with a twinkle in his eye and enjoyed his banding experiences to the full.
Wingates members past and present will I'm sure have fond and happy memories of a true gentleman.
We would like to send our deepest condolences to Maureen, his wife and their family at this difficult time.
