    After our very good result at the London and Southern Counties Area last weekend (3rd in the second section), we are currently looking for Solo Cornet and Bass Players to add to our very friendly family band. We have our own Bandroom situated in Dock Road Tilbury Essex and rehearsals are on Wednesday 8pm till 10pm with the very talented Mr Robert Nunnery. All other players are welcome too.

    Was a very good result for the band and we were very pleased. We dont got to Harrogate as only 2 bands qualify and we start the New Year off joint leaders of Section 2, so a good result next year will put us up. So anybody wishing to join an up and coming friendly band then please get in touch.

    Although never having played for Tilbury they have a very friendly bunch of supporters.

    Some of them were sat in front of my parents for most of the day and as soon as the results were announced they immediately turned around and congratulated the celebrating parents.

    Also the rep on the stage for the results was friendly too!

    Good luck on the player hunt.

    You probably been at Tilbury for years, but I remember you at Castle Point many moons ago when Tilbury were their rivals in the first section.
    Strange how rivalries change.

    Phil Lawrence took us to the area in Watford, where I moved onto Bb Bass as a one off (never since!) and David played Eb Bass, and either side of us were some young kids playing bass sat on copies of the yellow pages in order to reach the mouthpiece.

    What ever happened to Castle point brass?

    I fondly remember the band(or a small group) going to butlins Bognor one May weekend.

    Castle Point are still active, with a thriving concert programme - I frequently get their mailing lists through, but it always seems to clash with my own concerts!

    Their website can be found here:

    Castle Point are still going they do many concerts around their local area.

    I remember when you helped out Castle Point, think we were at the Woodside Hall in Benfleet.

    David is now playing with Aveley and Newham Band and Congrats to them for their 2nd place last weekend.
