Julie's Wedding - August
Ex Back Row Cornet player, Julie Pilgrim, got married during a short trip to the UK from New Zealand.

Clare Suter writes;
Julie Pilgrim came back from New Zealand earlier this month for her wedding to Michael (who played with us a few times but also used to play with Fulham) - Kirsty and I represented the 'back row babes' at the evening reception - I took a few pics. It really was a 'flying visit' here as she and Michael were flying back the day after the wedding. They are both really enjoying it in New Zealand and are not sure when they're next back again but it was lovely to see them."
Congratulations from all the band and we all wish you and Michael every happiness for the future!
