Kent Police Band is currently suffering a cornet shortage - both front and back rows, the rest of the band is very healthy, but owing to long-term illness and work commitments, this very friendly non-contesting band needs a few more competent players. Practice night is Wednesdays at Police HQ in Maidstone, but you do not need to be 'in the job' in order to be a member! - But you do get a uniform. One or more foreign tours are organised each year and all types of engagement (except fetes and carnivals!) are undertaken including some prestigious ones such as 10 Downing Street and the opening of the National Police Memorial by HRH Queen Elizabeth II. If anyone reading this is at all interested, more details can be found on the Kent Police website.
