Just a quick note to say that any students in the area are welcome to come along to Flixton (particularly if they play bass or percussion!). We rehearse 2 miles from the Trafford centre and within easy reach from all the Universities. We are a friendly bunch and do lots of socialising as well as concerts and a few contests (2nd Sc). The band is mainly aged 17-40. If you are interested email flixband@aol.com or PM me.

Best of luck Mike, Sparkly, Leisa and Lynchie etc in your search. I've no doubt that someone will jump at the chance to conduct Flixton. Especially when you consider what a nice bunch of people you all are.

Why is this Sticky?
It was an urgent request for a Musical Director!
As the Flixton Band have now found a suitable replacement it will now become 'Un-Sticky'!

:wink:
Flixton Band have appointed Peter Lockett to conduct them only until to the Area Contest. Peter will then resume his playing commitments with the band. A long term MD is still required.
Applications are welcomed from suitable candidates, a number of whom will be invited to meet the band after the forthcoming area contest.

I VOTE ROGER :wink:
For the record, I am not asking for the sticky to remain. I was trying to make the point that we have not yet replaced our MD, and are still looking to appoint a suitable applicant who can commit to the band after the area.
I didn't want Roger's statement to put off anyone SERIOUSLY interested in the job.
I Hope this is now clear.
