Band Members

Musical Directors:

We are pleased that Christine Britland of Teesside Music has taken up the baton as our new Musical Director.

We are very grateful to Phil Wardle, Doug Mosley and the late Peter Woodhouse for their services as Conductor. We have also been most appreciative of Damian Dunphy of the The Heavy Cavalry and Cambrai Band, Catterick for his six years in the rôle.

Our thanks go to Dick Blackford for his continued support, and for conducting the Band as required.

We would also like to thank Alun Prest, ALCM (Marske Band) and the Venerable Paul Ferguson (The Bishop of Whitby) for their "guest appearances".
