    Andover Town Band is looking for extra players to strengthen its team. After its most successful year yet since it reformed in 2010, the band gained Second Section as from Jan 2015 - while in January the youth band collected a sideboard full of trophies at the Wessex youth and training band contest.

    The recent charity concert at St Mary's Church with Builth Wells Male Voice Choir, organised by Andover Rotary Club was a sell-out success and the band are currently preparing for a busy programme of fetes and carnivals before a summer trip to Germany.

    However, some of the band's talented young people are leaving Andover this Autumn, off to university or starting their careers. So the band has vacancies for percussionists, trombone, flugel horn, cornet and players.

    "We'd be keen to welcome percussionists, cornet players, trombonists and a flugel player to strengthen our team and to replace two or three of our young people who are leaving the area. We rehearse every Thursday evening (Youth from 6.30, Community Band from 7.30) at Mitutoyo in West Portway (just off the Weyhill Road)."
