    In addition to their Championship 'A' band, and 2nd section 'B' band, the Wantage Band is planning to enter a new group - Wantage Academy Brass - in the 4th section L&SC Area Contest at Stevenage in March. Conducted by Nikki Jones, the new group consists largely of youngsters from the Training band, some adult beginners, and a few old hands - including Doug Brand (euph) who founded the present Wantage organisation 42 years ago, and Eileen Sykes (soprano) who has been Bandmaster for 30 years.
