Baton is handed to Alistair
by David Simister

A HESKETH Bank band has found a new conductor to help them hit the right note at concerts, the group's members confirmed this week.

The Hesketh Bank Silver Band confirmed that it has appointed Atherton man Alistair Burrows, 25, to the position, who will use his experience working with other bands from the north west at the group's future performances.

A spokesperson for the band said: “He studied music at The Royal Northern College of Music and has played from the age of 8 years old.

”He has played with many top bands in the north west, including the likes of Windgates Band and Hepworth Band.“

The appointment comes after Harry Bentham, the band's previous conductor, passed away earlier this year.

Music lovers can get the chance to see Mr Burrows using his talents to the full at a concert in memory of Harry Bentham, which takes place at the Hesketh Bank Christian Centre on Moss Lane. The 7.30pm concert is free to attend and includes refreshements.

If you're interested in joining the band, join them at the band room at Station Road at 8pm on Thursday evenings.
