It is with a heavy heart we farewell one of our long serving members.
Ruth Tomlinson (2nd Baritone) after some 15 years with the band has decided to cut down on the travelling to and from band practice. With her current employment moving out to Trentham, it seems only natural for her to be affiliated with a band geographically closer to where she is.
Over the past years involvement with the Trust Porirua City Brass Band there have been very few times when Ruth has not been able to make a practice or playout, making her one of the most loyal and committed bandspersons we have known.
We will definitely miss Ruth in our band, but we will keep in touch and will see her at all the contests she attends with her new ‘family’ the Upper Hutt City Cosmopollitan Club Brass.
