Memorable Banding Moment(s)

Comming 2nd at the Buxton Contest with Chapel-en-le-frith Town Band.
Bringing in a poster with me, Ben Body and John Cossee’s face on it saying “wanted for murdering the last note”. Mourices face was a picture.

Favourite Pieces.

Somthing About Yourself.I learnt to play at Thornsett Mini Band, and then moved up the ranks at the main band from 3rd cornet all the way to principle. I then joined Chapel-en-le-frith Town Band (but still stayed at Thornsett) and I have had some fun times there. I have also played for Tintwistle and Besses o’th Barn in the past as well as helping of lots of bands over the years.
