    I am looking for a band in the Hull area in the lower sections to compete with. I usually play 3rd cornet but have played 2nd cornet with The Cottingham Band. I am currently playing with Barton but not enough places available for me to compete.

    If any band has any places available please let me know.

    Can I add that Rob is a top bloke and a true bandsman. While I conducted at Cottingham, he gave 100%, even in the darkest days.

    A worthy addition in any bandroom.

    Can I suggest Swinton and District Excelsior?

    They are a 4th section band near the market town of Malton in North Yorkshire - not too far from Hull.

    I played with them for five years and they're a great bunch.

    They're doing the area this coming week, followed by Hardraw Scar, Whit Friday and Malton Entertainment Contest this year.

    Contact details can be found on their website:
