Sara Pountain 1971-2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Sara Pountain (nee Harbinson) on Monday 22 february 2021.
Sara joined the junior band with her sister Kaite when a young schoolgirl, firstly playing cornet and gradually progressing to euphonium. Sara became a stalwart member of the band and will be remembered for her beautiful playing. The band was like a second family to Sara and she contributed a great deal of her time and effort as band secretary, booking secretary and long serving committee member. Throughout her long illness Sara continued to play whenever she was able and only gave up when the band was suspended due to the current crisis.
Sara will be sadly missed and our sympathy and thoughts go out to James, Tina and Katie at this sad time.
