Such sad news - Brian meant a great deal to many past and present players within Roberts Brass that came up through the ranks of Lions. It’s through selfless and devoted people like Brian we have to thank for keeping the Brass Band movement alive today. Brian will be sadly missed, but his legacy of Lions will live on. You will be fondly remembered by all old friend. Sending our thoughts and prayers to your loved ones Jane, Katie, Amanda, Neil and all the family at this very sad time.It is with great sadness that I have to inform all our friends and followers that our great friend and trustee Brian Stubbs passed away on Sunday morning.
Everyone within Lions sends all our love and best wishes to Jane, Katie, Amanda, Neil and all the family at this very sad time.
Brian was such a wonderful man, supporting every child that played for Lions. He gave everything to the band and expected nothing back in return. Some people are just irreplaceable and he will be missed by everyone, but will never be forgotten.
Tomorrow evening at the end of the rehearsal, myself and the band will play one of Brian's favourite hymns, One More Step Along The World We Go.
If any of our parents or followers would like to come along, or any of our former players would like to join in this mark of respect for Brian , please arrive at the band room by 8.50pm. ... See MoreSee Less

On the 12th May Roberts Bakery Band, Lions Youth Brass and Audley Brass will hold a fundraising concert @ Ruskin High School, Crewe commencing at 2.30pm - in aid of the 2020 Foden's trip where they will be representing England in the European Brass Band Championships in Palanga, Lithuania.
Each band will provide a 25 minute performance with Mark Wilkinson performing with Lions Youth Brass and Gary Curtin performing with Audley Brass. The concert will conclude with a number of massed items. In 2018 Foden's were crowned the National Champions of Great Britain at the Royal Albert Hall, London and were subsequently invited to represent England at the European Brass Band Championships to be held in May 2020 in Palanga, Lithuania.
Speaking on behalf of Foden's Mark Wilkinson commented 'All at Foden's would like to thank Nigel C Birch for arranging this concert and to Lions, Audley and Roberts Bakery for giving up their valuable time to help us. We are looking forward to representing England at the European's next year and have been extremely busy arranging various fundraising events. The generosity showed by these bands will certainly help our fundraising appeal as we look to cover the estimated £20,000 costs to participate in this contest.'
Tickets for the concert are £10 with under 14's free and are available from Nigel Birch firstname.lastname@example.org or 07507911185 ... See MoreSee Less
