    I love helping out other bands! At the moment I'd say I regularly play for/help out four bands (St Agnes, Pendennis Youth, Pendennis Senior and Lanner!) - but I've also played with St Austell/St Austell Youth a couple of times and Caharrick and St Day once, and I'd love to help them out again sometime!

    I'll play for anyone!! (Preferably 2nd cornet :D!!)

    I don't know that I have been here long enough to help anybody out regularly, but I have helped out with about 1/2 dozen since I've been here.

    Really Chris??? Must remember that..... ;)

    I'll happily help anyone out - mainly on percussion at the moment as health problems make doing a full rehearsal or concert on cornet of flugel tricky.

    This year I've helped out or played with 5 bands, but I'm always willing to help - if I can't I usually know someone who can!!

    This year, 5 bands apart from my own (including Blackpool Tower Circus....which was nerve-wracking!), plus 2 others I was asked by but unable to go.

    I doubt if there's another movement that helps each other out quite as much as we do - all the bands I've helped have also helped us out at some point during the year, so take a bow Banks Brass, Rivington+Adlington, Lostock Hall, Chorley Youth, Hesketh Bank, and anyone else I've forgotten!
