Our oldest player is 78 (i think !) and currently plays BBb. If my memory is correct he said that his first contest (with Brackley Town Band as it was then) was in 1947 and he has since played with Brackley & District band in every section from 4th to Championship.
Our youngest current player is 14 but the yopungest i can remember was 9.
The oldest one in Broxburn is the legend that is charlie calder who is 66. We dont see much of him now because his health is getting the better of him these days. Shame cos he was a stunning player in his day, scottish solo champion about five years in a row in the late sixties early seventies.
I the youngest at seventeen and the rest of the band ranges from about 23 to 55ish
