Yesterday on the 4 August we said our final goodbyes to Donald Palmer.
Those of you who have played at an East Anglian Brass Band Association or London & Southern Counties Regional Championships would come into contact with Donald and would not have had a contest to attend without him (or others like him too).
He served both organisations for many years - never once as a player but purely a volunteer and administrator - ensuring that we the players had a contest to attend.
So at his funeral I personally gave my thanks to Donald for all his hard work and efforts for each and every brass player who he gave time for.
