    John,

    if you are stuck for anything then don't forget Rhiannon (Euphonium or trombone) and I (Cornet, sop or flugel) can help you out. Looked at the website though and you seem to have a full Euphonium section?

    Good luck at pontins

    Dear Mods
    This is not an attempt to bump the thread but rather to take a different approach trying to find players. and please can you remove all of my previous messages and just leave this.

    Please may I ask for anyone to send me a Private Message setting out details of people who they may know that I could approach via e-mail or letter with respect to playing for Newport Borough Brass Band to fill the above vacancies. Please seek their permission first. :) :) :)

    But the one we deleted yesterday was a blatant bump, and we will be deleting such posts in the future too!

    As for removing old posts,
    it is the tMP team's policy not to delete posts or threads (unless they violate the tMP Rules). We have discussed the presence of historical posts in the Recruitment threads at length and have decided that the history of the band's vacancies can be valuable information to those who might be considering a reply.
