I shall ignore the cheap line about the cornet section. Don't confuse quality with quantity! As for Mildred (who calls him that?) having his own website, not yet he doesn't. The guys who asked me to build it haven't yet come up with the content for the www.cornethero.com site. Hopefully they will come up with the data ASAP.

Erm... vaguely yes! Dont remember anyone squeezing oranges over my head! Fell asleep in the car on the way home though! :shock:

P.S. I wasn't driving at the time!


Thanks for your comments Twigglet. They're appreciated and thanks for coming to watch. It was great to meet Roger too.
You're right about Andy our principal cornet player. We're very lucky to have him . He's a brilliant player and a really fantastic , modest guy!
(not like Jimothy and Robbie!!).
