    Delighted to announce on behalf of Fodens Band that they have launched a new Youth Patrons initiative - Patrons will be given a certificate, choice of t shirt or mute bag, 10% discount on merchandise and automatic entry into a quarterly draw to have a lesson with one of the principal players....! :woo

    All proceeds will be entirely directed back into the development of new and exciting youth initiatives - watch this space! ;)

    Also to follow very soon is the inclusion on the main website of a Youth Web page - but first the page needs a name! The band is holding a competition open to anyone 18 yrs and under to think of a name for the web page - it already has Fodens 'Fanfare' for it's Patrons magazine, and who better to think of a name than youngsters themselves! :D

    For details of the competition and the Youth Patrons please have a look at Fodens website:

    Anyone interested can also contact me through TMP - thanks everyone!

The response from families and youngsters is much appreciated and we're enjoying sifting through the entries to the name the web page competition - there've been some great ideas that only young minds can come up with. They're really thinking outside the box! :clap:

    Winner of this quarter's lesson with one of Foden's principal players is local young trombonist ROB FODEN!!! Ta - Da...! :clap: Well done Rob!

    February's winner was Daniel Barrow, a young cornet player from Wales who won a super-duper lesson with our star euph Glyn Williams! :D

    Youth Website's near completion (at long last) but we're on twitter and will be on facebook too! :biggrin: Look out for more comps on the website!

    To be in with a chance to win a lesson why not join the Youth Patrons - but only if you're 18 or under! You'll also get a great choice of freebie on joining! You adults can always join the Fodens Patron Society and get things like free tickets to a Fodens concert. :tup

    Just to let you all know that (after copious floods of tears and horrendous tantrums) Fodens can proudly announce that their Youth Website 'Salute To Youth' is finally up and running!

    We've even got a 'working party' of young patrons to help us with ideas, etc, so it's doing what it set out to do - involve the youngsters! :clap:

    Please have a look and give us your comments - you could even follow us on facebook! Just remember it is aimed mainly at the younger generation so no naughty words please! Wrinklies are welcome but only if they don't misbehave! :biggrin:
