    I've sent you a Private Message regarding cornet teachers. Don't know whether you've checked yet.

    Dronfield Band (Practice in Coal Aston half a mile south of Sheffield so can't be far from Rotherham) 4th section, but in equal top ranked place of the ones left in next year, plus their is a tour to Dronfield's twin town in Germany coming up in June. How could you forget us Colin? :lol: :lol:

    Its about 12 miles to Coal Aston, Daniel, so Dronfield's inclusion is justified!! Sorry!! Although if I were to sniff out every band within a 12 mile radius of Rotherham, I'd been going for a long time!!

    You failed to mention 2 of the 4 bands actually IN rotherham, and they both rehearse in Maltby, about 7 miles from the centre of rotherham. Theres South Yorkshire Police Band who play in the second section and Maltby Miners Welfare who are in the third section. I know that Maltby rehearse on a thursday evening and a sunday morning. If you want contact details for Maltby Miners contact me (and are incidently looking for cornets.)
  9. I'm surpirsed at you Daniel, how could you not mention Killamarsh?! Non-contesting band, but good fun! Plus theres the annual tour, Holland this year, which is always good for a laugh, and a good bunch of people, if i do say so myself! See for more details!
