Barry Payne, Musical Director of West Somerset Brass Band is stepping down at the end of the year, final engagement being Carols in Swain Street on 24th December but will remain a member of the band. Barry has been directing the band for 14 years and felt it was time for the younger generation to take over. The band would like to thank Barry for his hard work and commitment over the years and held a small presentation at the football club where the band’s chairman, Peter Owen, presented Barry with a portrait painted by local artist, Rose Tranter. The band returns in the New Year under the direction of Niall Watson. If you are interested in learning a brass instrument or are a brass player who would like to join the band, we would love to hear from you, we also have an active training band if you wish to brush up your skills. We rehearse Wednesdays and Fridays in Watchet. Please email the band secretary, Claire Whitworth, westsomersetbrass@gmail.com .
