Phillip Littlemore awarded Honorary Life Member

Ware Brass were proud to name Phillip Littlemore as an Honorary Life Member of the Band at the final rehearsal prior to the L&SC Area Contest where the band were placed 7th. Lisa Huttlestone, Band Chairperson, presented Phillip with the award and a special edition Ware Brass Pint Glass !!

Phillip, conducted the band from 2006 to 2017 when he relocated to the Isle of Wight, but came to our rescue 10 weeks ago when he agreed to come back as Musical Director to take the band to the L&SC Area Contest. Commuting 4 hours each way, for 10 weeks is amazing dedication !! Phillip has contributed so much to the band over the last 16 years and this is a truly well deserved award. It’s great to now have Phillip as a life time member.
