Last weekend's win at the NEMBBA contest saw an official debut for Dave Flatman, our new Bass Trombone player. Dave has come in to allow Keith Fairburn to concentrate on his duties as secretary - although he'll be keeping "in practise" for emergencies. Not playing at Derby but now with us on a permanent basis is percussionist Neil Graham, who was part of the excellent percussion team at Skegness in January. We'll hopefully have photo's and biographies on the website shortly. Going the other way are 1st Horn Suzanne Fake, who will be taking a maternity break after the Area, but who hopes to be back by the end of summer, and Repiano cornet player Dave Jackson, who will be stepping down in March, due to family commitments. This gives a rare opportunity for someone to join our highly successful cornet team - see "Recruitment Corner" or the website for details.
