Les Packett - founding chairman

Sad news that our founding chairman, Les Packett, died on 25th July. A thoroughly nice, unassuming man, he was active in brass music playing, composing and teaching throughout his life, co-founding the Alton Wind Band in 2010. He was a willing hand-deliverer of our newsletters until very recently. There is to be a celebration of his life in the Salvation Army Church, Amery Street, on 10th October. Our sympathies go to his wife Jill.
