Chalford Band are extremely sad to announce passing of stalwart member Pete Hendy.
Pete will be missed by all members, young and old.
Pete’s towering figure was well suited to playing the BBb bass in the Academy Band where he learned to play as a ‘mature student’.
As a former teacher with a wealth of knowledge and always a story or witticism to share, Pete was a natural successor to take over as Christmas Concert compere, where most of our audience, members, families and friends will remember him.
Pete was a true gentleman. On behalf of all members, thank you for your friendship and your contribution to the Band over many years.
Our sympathies and best wishes are extended to his family.
