Hello all, Stuart here! Long time reader for the forums, thought it was about time I made myself known. Been with Foresters Brass 2000 for about 2 years now, a very friendly and talented band with hopefully has a bright future ahead of it. Before that I has a very successful 3 year spell with Snibston & Desford with 2 Mineworkers 2nd Section Champions titles the main achievements for the band. I was introduced to Brass Banding by my dad Neal Oliver with Ratby Juniors and was one of the founding members of the Ratby Mid Band. I had 10 year association with the Ratby organisation where I made some great friends. So very much Leicester Born and Bred!! Big shout out to the other Leicester Band members who post on here and also a request to anyone on here who I might have played with during my time with Ratby and Snibston to come forward and make themselves known so we can get reacquainted again!! Cheers and good luck to all at the area, particularly those competing in the second section. Think were all going to need it this year!!
