  The death has been announced of the respected administrator Mavis Lloyd

4BR has been informed of the death of Mavis Lloyd, the much respected former secretary of the Durham County Brass Band Association. She died at home surrounded by her family, following a long illness.

Dedication

A spokesperson told 4BR: "Mavis and her dedication to the Association and brass bands will never be forgotten. She was secretary for over 18 years until she stood down due to her ill health last year.

It was a role she loved and gave her all towards. Her unique character will be very sadly missed at all future events and by the brass band movement as a whole."

Mavis was also for many years the registrar for the North of England Brass Band Championships.

Tributes

The spokesperson added: "Tributes have been received recalling how tirelessly Mavis worked for the Association yet always had time for people. One band member knew that even though she was stern and wanted things to be right, there was always a twinkle in her eye and a smile."

Officials will represent the Association at her funeral by the request of the family.
