    [FONT=&amp]Kenny Pain returns to the band on Soprano Cornet after short time away pursuing his conducting career. He is the current Musical Director of the Dobcross Silver Band however Kenny realised he missed playing for Milnrow and has managed to now fulfil both roles. Kenny replaces Jay Abbott who recently moved back to Nottingham. We would like to thank Jay for his time in the band and wish him all the best in the future. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&amp]Natalie Beer joins the band on 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] Cornet.

The band would like to thank Helen Moore and Arfon Owen for covering the seat over this period.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&amp]Mick Morris returns to Milnrow to head our Bass Section after an absence of nearly 11 years from the band. Mick joins us from the Brighouse & Rastrick Band and is already whipping the section into shape.[/FONT] [FONT=&amp]Finally, Dave Hebb returns to the middle of the band after an absence of around 10 years, however he has more recently played with the band on Eb Bass. Dave also joins from the Brighouse & Rastrick Band with whom he has had an association for the past 16 years. [/FONT] [FONT=&amp]All that remains is for the band to secure the position of Principal Cornet. Anyone interested should contact the band on 07833 478 687 or email[/FONT][FONT=&amp][/FONT]
