    Kevin Steward, Conductor of Blidworth is taking a sabbatical and is off to teach in Singapore for a few months. The band would like to take this opportunity to thank Kevin for all he has done over the past 18 months, he has worked very hard with us and we wish him the best of luck in his new job.

    While he is away we have engaged the skills of two very experienced conductors, who will take over the reigns in his absence. Huw Thomas has agreed to take the band until the 16th August and then the band will be placed in the Martin Heartfield will take over after the 16th August and will be taking the band right through to the Midlands Area 2010.

    We would also like to welcome new players to the band as well. Richard and Kay Gallimore have joined on Trombone and Tenor Horn respectively and Dominic White and Emily Buxton on Cornet.

    Good luck Sid from all at Blidworth and we will see you when you get back.
