The Amersham Band organisation has sent out a poetic message of goodwill to its supporters as well as to the worldwide brass band community.
Every Christmas ensembles from each of its four bands; Main, Community, Concert and Brass Roots (Youngsters) usually perform in churches and supermarkets in Amersham and Rickmansworth.
However, because of understandable Covid-19 restrictions they have only been able to perform in groups of six, although thanks to band member Mrs Terry Willis who writes her own 'A Poem a Day', they have also been able to reach out to their community supporters in a very different, but still, innovative way.
2020 has seen the band come to the end of their mammoth £450,000 fund raising efforts to build a brand new community bandroom right in the centre of Amersham, with players, administrators and supporters all lending a hand and their skills — including retired teacher Terry's poetic talent.
The Amersham Band Chairman, Fred Harrison introduces the poem.
