This morning found WCB in the new-look Wokingham town square, adding a touch of Christmas to the shopping in the sunshine (well..and the rain!)! We had lots of fun and had some lovely comments from numerous passers by - thanks very much if you stopped to say hello (or even put something in our collecting buckets)!

If you want more Christmas in your life (and who doesn't!), it's not too late to book tickets for our fabulous and very sparkly Holly Jolly Christmas Concerts next Sunday - more info here: www.facebook.com/events/323797878421642/ - we've been working flat out to prepare and they're going to be AMAZING!This morning found WCB in the new-look Wokingham town square, adding a touch of Christmas to the shopping in the sunshine (well..and the rain!)!

We were privileged to be part of the service taking place on Armistice Day exactly 100 years after the end of the First World War. A fly past by triplanes and two helicopters from RAF Benson were followed by the Last Post beautifully played by our own John Sayer.

Beauty and talent.......you are so lucky to have her lead your band !

Beautiful, reflective service. Well done for your part in it Claire Lawrence

Just spotted her behind Tom Jones!

We watched it, wow it was emotional and the music was superb! I did think of WCB. ♥️

She was difficult to miss, in camera shot the whole time he was singing.

Me too
