The Eagley Band has announced the departure of their MD, Gareth Westwood.
Best of terms
The departure is made on the best of terms as Gareth succumbs to the music teaching workload of his new post at the Blue Coat School.
Band spokesperson Mike Lyons told 4BR: "Thanks to Gareth, the band is in a good position. We continue to have a very full concert agenda, as well as contest appearances and we are also celebrating our 160th year in 2010 with a new CD which was released just before Christmas. The band would like to thank Gareth for his three years of hard work and we wish him all the very best for the future."
