  • (Very) Long Service Awards

    Glossop Old Band played at a fabulous concert at St Lukes Church on the 4th October and took the opportunity to present long service awards to 4 members of the band that have between them clocked up over 140 years’ service to the band. Alison Parker (3rd Cornet) is the relative newcomer to the group having just achieve 25 years with Glossop Old Band.     Dave Richardson joined the band in 1978 and, apart from a very brief interlude to join Wingates, has been Principal Cornet with the band for most of the time.    Julie Askey (2nd horn) has been a stalwart of the band since early 1970’s and has been instrumental to the running of the club.  Finally Hugh Cant (Eb bass) joined the band whilst he was in Junior school and has played with the band for over 45 years and has only made one minor move from Flugel to Eb bass. We are very fortunate to have such loyal players and look forward to everything the future hold for both players and band.
