Mark Arnold Grimethorpe Colliery Band Australia 2002 (5410 words)
The band met up at 12:45 then it was off to the first shoot which happened to be on a beach.
We met back up at the hotel for 5:30 as we had a welcome reception hosted by the City of Perth Brass Band in their superb new bandroom which was in the grounds that had a lake with a bridge over including a new bandstand.
Well I can't believe that the band are going on another trip to Australia, the third time in three years, I also feel this maybe the last time for a few years as we are going to America definately next year and possibility the year after, so it's make the best of it this time.
