    Due to a work relocation for 5 months I would like to find a band to have a blow with. Im based in Chivenor but have transport, also some of the other lads are looking for somewhere to keep their chops up too.

    My internet access is limited so please get in touch on my mobile number 07875382691. I play Trombone but also do a bit of conducting too!

    You would be made very welcome at South Molton. Currently 2nd section in WEst of England. We are a very really friendly band, rehearse Tuesdays and Thursdays 8-10pm. We are looking at going to Bugle Contest - which is great day out in the West Country and have a number of engagements in the diary over the next few months - but not too many!! We also have a junior band if you are interested in helping there.

    PM me if your interested or my number is 01237 422414

    Should have said; there are no brass bands in Barnstaple or the Braunton/ Ilfracombe direction. There are bands in Torrington and Bideford - both 4th section and an unregistered band in Appledore. We have players travelling in from Barnstaple, Bideford and Torrington and as far afield as Exeter, any would be willing to give lifts.

    You would be welcome at Lympstone Band - I'm sure you know where that it is!! If you fancy going slightly further, we rehearse on Monday and Friday between 7.45 and 9.45.

    And if you fancy a non contesting band, and pass West Somerset in your travels, you'd be welcome at Watchet Town Band.
