Sad passing of Donald Palmer

It is with much sadness that the East Anglian Brass Band Association announces that Donald Palmer passed away on Tuesday 12th July. Donald had been involved with brass bands in East Anglia, mainly in administration, for around sixty years. Anyone entering one of the Association's contests will have spoken to Donald as he was in charge of our registrations for several years. Donald was a dedicated and hard working Trustee of the East Anglian Brass Band Association and was one of the Association's representatives on the London and Southern Counties Regional Committee. Donald was a true gentleman and a very good friend and will be very much missed by us all.

Donald's funeral is on 4th August at 12.30pm at St Faith's Crematorium, Horsham St Faiths, Norwich, NR10 3LF.

Donald requested that some of his friends from brass bands in East Anglia play at his funeral.

To assist with the arrangements if you plan to attend Donald's funeral or if you also wish to play at the service please can you contact the Association Chairman, Christine Wade at or on 07714456546.
