    Well thank you for your kind offer, although I think you'll find the 259 mile trip (one way) will probably get you down after a week or two. :)


    Watchet is in sunny Somerset.

    Relocation package? Well there's free use of the Bandroom and it's private parking space, a free pint in the Esplanade Club (run by one of the trombone section, which is nice) and sea views.

    Much better than being Up North! :guiness

    Conductor/Band Trainer required. Our present conductor wishes to retire and so we are seeking a replacement. We are a small non-contesting band with decent players on the corner seats. (4th section standard ). We own our own band-room. Practice nights are Wednesday and Friday. Reasonable travelling expenses paid for practises and Jobs. No Barnaerts music allowed! ;)

    Conductor/Band Trainer still needed. We have until the end of the Summer season to find a replacement for our present Conductor, (who wants to retire now but will hold off until then). If no one comes forward there is a strong likelihood that the Band will fold, which would be tragic since it's been around since 1893.

    I`m still asking around for you but the feed back I am getting is that the people I know like Contesting. You may have to put on those Walking Out Jackets yet!
