More news from ABBA

The Association of Brass Band Adjudicators have announced in a statement that Stan Lippeatt has been restored to their membership after completing Diversity & Equality training.

Their full statement reads:

"Following a thorough review by the Executive Committee of ABBA, it is now considered appropriate to restore Stan Lippeatt's membership of ABBA from 4th August 2013.

Stan Lippeatt has been a member of the Association of Brass Band Adjudicators (ABBA) since 1999.

During the Bolsover Entertainment Contest during Autumn 2012, an unfortunate situation resulted in Stan’s immediate suspension from ABBA.

Subsequently, Stan has been offered Diversity & Equality training as part of ABBA's restorative practice guidelines.

It is pleasing to note that Stan has participated and satisfactorily completed a Certificate of Attendance on the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust Course.”
