Have your say

Reading the review of the village event in Holme, yet again, after all these 18 years of its existence, you still manage to get the title name of those very gifted and generous musicians who give their time to make those occasions such a success, wrong.

It is not, nor ever has been, “Hunstanton Town Band”. (How do I spell sarcasm?)As a founder member and privileged conductor for more years than I think necessary to recall, we have had this battle about its correct name, Hunstanton Concert Band, as it was named from the very beginning. Will you ever get it right? If I were persistently to mis-spell your name as frequently as you do the band’s, you would have every right to get cross, but the difference is in the amount of wrong advertising you are giving it. I realise that you are “only the local paper” but I really do think it is about time you helped the band get the correct coverage it must rightly have. Thank you very much but with no ill feelings.
