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.
