"Bringing Christ to People and People to Christ"

Promoted to Glory

We have received the sad news of the Promotion to Glory of former Chatham Bandmaster Bill Andrews on 6 September.

Bill Andrews

Bill was Bandmaster here from 1947 to 1965 and is largely credited with resuscitating the corps band after the war years.   He had been ill for a couple of months.   Bill was 94 years of age and always looked back on his time at Chatham with great fondness. We will publish information about the funeral when we receive it.
