    Sad to hear the news that Derek had passed away. Sending best wishes from everyone within the world of Scout Bands. Derek had such a massive influence within the Scout Association for young scout and guide musicians, having been the National Adviser for bands and Orchestra for many many years he was responsible for numerous events, bringing music to high profile occasions and staging concerts and competitions across the UK. I had the privilege of working with Derek on a number of these events and enjoyed his company socially also, happy memories of meeting at Kudu Lodge and within the KLA. Our thoughts with all his family and friends.
