I WRITE with regard to the article featured in the Friday November 21 edition of the Cambs Times, which was entitled 'What was the rush?'

I am a very proud member of the Neale Wade band, which was involved in the opening of the bandstand, and while I have the utmost respect for Mr Sutterby and his views, I feel that mine, and that of my fellow band members, should also be put forward.

The town councillors made a decision of who to choose, and we are very privileged to have been asked.

The Neale Wade Band shows just how talented the young musicians of March are, and what we could achieve in the future.

We feel very lucky and honoured to have been the first band to play at the bandstand and it shows that the young people of the area will embrace this.

May I also take this opportunity to mention that the Neale Wade band includes instruments from every instrument family and is not just a showcase of brass.
