Can anyone tell me where I can get some music for a young learner band, not complicated, four part harmony etc.?? :?:

I think you'll find the First Blow series could be handy. I think the composer or editor of this is Ernie Whaites and its published by Studio Music. There are 3 levels of difficulty, but even the top one is still quite elementary. Try Mostyn Music as well, think they've got quite a bit of stuff.

Hope this helps.

"Preliminary Band Book" by Stuart Johnson, available for R.Smith is not too bad. Some easy useable tunes. Starts with little pieces about 3 or 4 bars long, and finishes with a short suite.

His followup book, "Intermediate Band Book" is a bit of a jump though.

Suggest something like his "Old Castle Suite" is a better next step.
