Christmas has proven to be as busy a time as ever for the Tongwynlais band as not only have the band been packing up to move into their new home they also said some goodbyes and also some welcomes on the player front!

After many years service to the band David (Oz) Ozbourne has packed away his mouthpiece and retired from banding.  “Oz played a pivotal role for the band on Solo Baritone and gave some great performances on the contest stage.  A dedicated bandsman through-and-through, we’re sad to see Oz leave and wish him well in his retirement.”  (Jason Bevan, Chairman)

Carlton Sykes joins on Eb Bass and the band welcome back Charlotte Chambers on Solo Cornet after a stint at Cory.

 “The band start 2012 buoyed by a successful end to 2011 and these new signings further strengthen the band.  Under Phil Harper’s direction the band are looking forward to competing at this years Mineworker’s Championship in Butlins.”  (Jason Bevan, Chairman).
