Back into practice

We’ve got a temporary new home for our Monday practices, whilst our bandroom in the Fire & Rescue services building is out of action, due to Covid precautions. We have managed to do a couple of practice sessions al fresco, in the car park, but our ‘Summer’ weather has made this a hazardous undertaking. At last we have been able to move indoors, as some restrictions on premises and group numbers have eased.

Our grateful thanks to the Weston Free Church for letting us use their premises and practice with a roof over our heads. As the photo shows, (and not all the band is present) we have to maintain our distances, which makes for an unfamiliar sound balance (to us at least). But if the BBC Symphony Orchestra can do it for the First night of the Proms, who are we to complain?
