For those of you who haven’t caught up with the news yet, for the first time in our 26-year history, we will not be playing at the ANZAC Day Dawn Service. This event has been cancelled in line with the government’s advice for large gatherings and for the health and safety of all people involved. You may have seen another way to pay tribute to our servicemen, women and animals floating around on social media – at 6 am on Anzac Day, go to the end of your driveway and observe a minute’s silence. Could be a lovely way to honour the occasion.
We are following all government and medical updates as they come to hand and after consulting the Band Executive have decided that rehearsals should be suspended at least until the end of April at which time we shall reassess our situation. We are a community group with members of all ages and we want to make sure everyone stays as safe as possible. For committee members the meeting that was scheduled for April 8th has been cancelled and the committee will not meet again until band recommences.
Please take care of yourselves, act responsibly and heed all advice from health and government groups. We want to see ALL of you back at rehearsals once it is deemed safe to do so. Oh, yes and keep practising!!
