Stour and Avonbank  Remember Dave

    The loss of a member and friend is always a sadness and the sudden manner in which Dave Turner left brass banding was all the more felt by his many family, friends and musicians in the musical world.

    Bandsmen and women from a variety of the many bands and organisations David had been involved with gathered together in Bengeworth Parish Church to celebrate his life and raise funds for his personally adopted charity which ensured a full church as the assembled came together to play and celebrate Dave’s life and commitment to banding, below we feature a few of the moments from that evening.
