Everyone at Pendeen Silver Band would like to send our best wishes to Stephen Hatch as he prepares to leave the UK to spend a year working as a teacher in Tanzania.

Stephen has been principal percussionist for the last two years and we will be sorry to see him go. We hope that on his return to the UK he will come back to the far west of Cornwall to pick up the sticks again.

Last Friday the band held a special concert in St. Just Methodist Church to help raise funds to support his trip. The concert was a great success with an appreciative audience enjoying the band and our special guest Hannah Pascoe.
