The Royal Air Force Association (RAFA) Concert Band has now moved to a new home in Weston-super-Mare and is recruiting more musicians.

The band has settled into its new base in Victoria Methodist Church, in Station Road, after Weston Town Council could no longer find space for it at the Blakehay Theatre.

RAFA is now looking for a new drummer, as well as any other musicians who play brass and woodwind instruments, ahead of two busy years of concerts.

Hannah Davies, aged 14, plays the clarinet and is RAFA’s youngest member.

She said: “My dad encouraged me to come along. I enjoy the experience and growing as a player.”

To get involved, call 01934 820205.
