    Camborne Town Band are pleased to announce that Dr. Robert Childs is their new Professional Music Advisor. Bob will begin working with the Band in September and his role will be all encompassing, ranging from helping the Band develop its musical policy, to advising on the engagement of guest conductors.



    Bob Childs said, 'I'm pleased to be working with such a fine Band and look forward to meeting the players and committee after the summer break. My son David has had a link with the Camborne Youth Band for some time and I'm thrilled to be working with such a forward looking organisation. I'm obviously very busy with the Cory Band but when my diary permits, I'm really looking forward to taking the Band to a few contests."



    Marcus Dunstan, the Camborne Town Band Music Society Chairman, added: "Bob's appointment is very exciting and hopefully will herald a new and successful era for the Band." He also wanted to send his personal thanks to Frank Renton for his hard work over the past 7 years.
