I would like to congratulate and thank music teacher Ceri Griffin and band leader Alan Norris for organising a wonderful band concert on Saturday, September 5.

It was held at the Neale Wade Academy, March. The Hereward Concert Band – comprising staff and pupils of the school together with other invited players – come together each year to perform the charity concert in aid of Help for Heroes and the school’s music department.

One seldom has the opportunity these days to hear such a large band.

Considering the short time they all had to rehearse together, the results were magnificent – particularly the beautiful rendition of Albert Ketelbey’s ‘Bells Across the Meadow’.

Once again very well done and I look forward to next year’s concert when I hope more people will come along to hear this wonderful band.

election win

Well done Aigars

Congratulations to Aigars Balsevics on winning at the recent Wisbech town council elections!

Great, thank you to him for organising many events for locals and other nationals. It’s a real credit to our community to have an opportunity to unite!

One of the next events will be held on September 26 at the Tower Ballroom where everybody will have an opportunity to experience the magic of Latvian country music.

Thank you and see you there!

labour leadership

Brown was rubbish

As a disillusioned Labour supporter I have to disagree with P.Davis (Letters, September 9) that the last rubbish Labour leader was Michael Foot.

I say it was Gordon Brown (elected by nobody) and largely responsible for the mess the country and Labour party is in.

Hence we had a leadership contest between three cardboard cut-outs and Jeremy Corbyn.

Apart from John Smith’s brief time, we need to go back to Jim Callaghan, for a non-rubbish leader.

‘Back in the day’ Labour was always a credible and electable party.

Disillusioned.

birthday boost

Thank you

I celebrated my 8oth birthday on August 12.

On the following Saturday we had a family party. My family put on a barbecue in my garden for my friends.

I asked for donations for St Peter’s Church at Upwell and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and everyone was very generous by donating over £700, which will be shared between my two causes. I wish to say ‘thank you’ to everyone. Thank you and God bless.

Hazel Medlock,

Upwell.
