The Deepcar Band has announced the resignation of MD Lindon Bolt.

4BR understands that after five successful years of progress and development Lindon will be taking on new musical challenges.

Success

A spokesperson told 4BR: "Over the last five years we have enjoyed a great deal of success.

This included podium finishes in the last three years at Bolsover Festival of Brass, multiple prizes gained at Whit Friday, and two excellent podium finishes at Buxton in 2014 and Holmfirth this year. In addition the band secured a famous victory at the 'Battle of the Bands' contest."

Sad to leave

They added: "We are all sad to see Lindon leave Deepcar. He has achieved so much with us in the five years together and it will certainly be a hard task replacing him. We all wish him the best for the future."

Enjoyed

The departing MD was fulsome in his praise for the band. "I've really enjoyed the past five years at Deepcar in what was my first conducting post. We have achieved and learned a lot together and produced some great performances and results.

However, I now feel the time is right for me and the band for a fresh face to continue their progress."

The whole organisation is well set-up and run, with excellent attendance at rehearsals. Deepcar are such a friendly and welcoming bunch of people and I will miss themLindon Bolt

Friendly

He continued: "The whole organisation is well set-up and run, with excellent attendance at rehearsals. Deepcar are such a friendly and welcoming bunch of people and I will miss them. I sincerely wish them every success for the future.

I can easily say these have been the most enjoyable years of my banding career and I will always look back on my time at Deepcar fondly."
