Adele Sellers, the retiring MD will also remain in touch as well but after 6 years has decided that she needs take time out due to her family and work commitments. Adele achieved a great deal with the band including promotion from the 2nd to the Championship Section, some excellent results including at Pontins, 2 CD's and a much improved local following at concerts.

Many of the younger members of the band are current or former pupils of Adele. With a view to the Midland Area Contest (Championship Section) in March, the band still has possible vacancies for a top cornet, solo euphonium and a baritone.
