Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 21 August 2008

The Fodens Band are delighted to welcome Lucy Chivers to its back row line up ahead of a busy concert and contesting year for the band. Lucy will be joining the band on third cornet as from next week and her first engagement with the band will be a massed band concert featuring the Fodens Band alongside the Roberts Bakery band in early February.

Lucy, who has helped out the band on numerous occasions before joining, hails from Bolton and has had previous experience with the Hoover Bolton band, the Eagley Band and is a former member of the Bolton Youth Initiative.

"We are delighted to have Lucy on board ahead of what is a very important year for the band both on the contest and concert stage. Lucy has helped out the band on various other occasions in the past and has proven herself to be a fine player."

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
