The Passing of Gordon Roberts24th February 2021
It is with immense sadness that the Rothwell Temperance Band must announce the Passing of former Principal Trombone player and fond friend of the band Peter Argyle.
Peter joined Rothwell B band in 1989 along side his sons Kenneth and Paul after many years with the Yorkshire Imperial Metals Band, and over the next 9 years he enjoyed great success with the band and also conducted the Junior band.
During Peter’s 9 years with Rothwell there were many memorable occasions including numerous contest victories, the Norwegian tour in 1996 and a concert with Ian Bousfield as guest soloist in 1994 which was very special to Peter as they were part of the Imps trombone section together.
Even after Peter retired from the band he would still regularly attend rehearsals and contests to support both Kenneth and Paul.
Peter was a true bandsman and a real character. He was highly respected and loved by everyone who knew him. The Band would like to send their deepest sympathy to Peter’s family at this very sad time.
