A special goodbye to David

Last Saturday night was the last musical event to be directed in Rothbury by David Richardson, pictured, before moving from Snitter to Yorkshire.

His wife Wendy assisted and sang in a duet at the Last Night of the Proms concert at All Saints Church.

David directed the sell-out and award-winning production of Brassed Off, in Alnwick, in May with Alnwick Theatre Club and the Ellington Colliery Brass Band.

On Saturday, David presented the band with a certificate of merit and achievement. At the end, David and Wendy were presented with farewell gifts from the Upper Coquetdale parish. The event raised £1,370 for church funds.
