The City of Hull Band has announced the death of its long serving BBb tuba player Pete Arden. He was 58.
A band spokesperson told 4BR: "Peter finally lost his battle with Covid-19 on Saturday 4th July, having been treated in intensive care at Hull Royal Infirmary for five weeks.
He was unstinting in his support of the band; a fine tuba player, a much respected Secretary for several years and an active trustee. Peter will be greatly missed for as a player and bandsman — and his irrepressible sense of humour.
Our thoughts are with all his family and his many friends throughout the banding world at this sad time."
