SIR - On behalf of Appledore Band I wish to thank Mrs J Hawl for her letter in last week's Gazette relating to the band's visit to Normandy. We are delighted she enjoyed the concert.
The band was invited to play at the 35th twinning celebrations of the Northam/Mondeville twinning Associations during the weekend of September 24-28. There then followed a great deal of fund-raising activities by band members and their families.
We had a splendid weekend in the Mondeville area, playing two concerts for the Twinning Associations. We also played an impromptu concert at Arromanche sea front by the Memorial Museum to an appreciative audience. One French couple who had attended our concerts on Appledore Quay during the summer travelled from Paris to see us at Mondeville.
The trip was greatly enhanced by perfect weather and the vast knowledge of the area by our coach driver, Ray Kingdom of TW Coaches of South Molton.
