    Hi all,

    Because of work, myself and my wife are relocating down south to the Camberley, Surrey area and are looking for a band to join, though we're not moving until mid-april/beginning may.

    I'm looking for a sop or flugal position but am willing to play front row depending on what seat, and my wife will be ideally suited to back row though not rep.

    ideally we're looking for a 2nd section band but if you're a friendly bunch you never know where we'll end up.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I would suggest Sandhurst Band may be worth a look!

    Epson & Ewell Silver Band (based in Epsom, Surrey) are a 1st section band. My brother and sister in law play there and live in Guildford. I used to live in that area and know that Camberley is not too far from Guildford but I don't know how far it is from Epsom!!

    They have a website, not sure of the full address but try Googling Epsom & Ewell Silver Band (EESB).

    Hope you get sorted

    Thanks Andrea for the offer, but i'm sorry Tilbury is a bit too much to travel. We're looking for some reasonably local.

    many thanx

    Hi Wayne - don't do anything until you've give Alder Valley Brass a try, based on the Farnham/Aldershot border. I played there for several years during my exile in the south and they are a fantastic bunch making great progress under the direction of Roger Burke. Cathy and yourself would be made very welcome I'm sure.

    If you can't contact them I'm sure I'll be able to find a number for you - give me a call.

    Near to Camberley, you have Egham (1st section), Sandhurst (1st section) & Staines Brass (Champ section). There's also Staines Lammas if you don't fancy contesting! Good luck with your move!

    Hi there,

    If you're looking for a band to join, feel free to pop along to Regent Brass. The band is in the 1st section, but we do have a couple of cornet vacancies, one of which is on soprano cornet.

    The band rehearses near Preston Road station on the Metropolitan Line, so very convenient to get to! More information is on www.regentbrass.com. We rehearse Thursday evenings 8-10pm.

    There's also a bar nearby which is a regular Regent haunt!
