    What about a bit of a pamper session!!

    Treat your good lady to a photographic makeover :) hair and make up, coffee, bite to eat and a 1hr photo shoot. I know its a bit of a plug but a cracking christmas gift.

    Buy a voucher up until christmas and pay half of what it should normally be, full price £100, special christmas price £50, only stipulation is, it has to be used in January 2009. Marlin Makeovers, 01924 382211

    Happy festive season to you all :)

    Are you buying for your cornet section then or were you talking about your family?

    If you are buying presents for your fellow band members then please join Verwood immediately and I can give you a list for the horn section. (There are 7 of us and only one is a man so its easy)
