I started playing Cornet at the very young age of 7 with the Salvation Army until I was 16 years old. I had a little rest then until I was 35 when I started up again with Langley Park Band then Ferryhill Band and after that the Mechanics, I have helped out with several Bands over the years and gained local silverware including runners up in the Second Section CISWO contest in 1987. I would just like to carry on playing and keep my position as Principle Cornet for the Band. I have been known to have filled in on Flugel and Tenor horn in the past. As an interest outside of Banding I enjoy DIY, Gardening, Bowls and Driving.
