With the passing of Cyril Barrett Aldbourne Band has lost a great friend and bandsman. Cyril was a member of the band for over 80 years. Over these numerous years with the band he was a player, treasurer, secretary, chairman and Vice President. For many years, after retiring from playing Eb bass, Cyril took on the position of band librarian and with Alan Watson continued his long service to the band. It is incredible to think that for a band that is 165 years old Cyril was a part of it for nearly half that time. We would like to pass on to Cyril's family the bands sincerest condolences and all our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
I know that we will all have our own memories of Cyril and will miss him greatly.
Thank you Cyril.
