  5. You could try Poynton - there are a few members on here you could contact, I'm sure they'll find this thread though before I can remember their user names. Also close by are Ashton, and Moston & Beswick who are based in Manchester - I know that they're looking for a principal cornet at the moment, as well as front / back row player. Also Crewe co-op, which is getting a bit further out now - probably about an hours drive from Stockport - are looking for a front row cornet player. PM me if you want any contact details for Moston or Crewe.

    You could always try Dobcross Silver. A great set of people who work and play hard but also know how to enjoy themselves. We are also celebrating the bands 130 birthday this year so why not become a part of something special. Contact Dennis Hadfield on 07957 871239 for more details.
