As more and more people discover, join and enjoy what we do on tMP, many of these new members are indeed from, shall we say, the younger generation. Enthusiasm and passion in youth is a wonderful thing, and as such we felt it appropriate that we look to some of our enthusiastic younger members to perhaps take on a new tMP role of encouraging, mentoring and generally assisting some of these new (and maybe not so new too!) members. So, as of today, we have created the new role of tMP Juniors Representative - which can be identified by members with the following tMP badge: We have invited a very special person to be our very first tMP Juniors Representative. This person is Sophie… aka Sopha. To illustrate the passion and enthusiasm Sophie has for all things brass banding, and to illustrate clearly why we felt Sophie would be a wonderful and obvious choice for this role, here's a little bio: I am sure you will agree she will undoubtedly do a great job for us. Please offer Sophie your support as she enthusiastically helps all our younger members.
