New principal for Newhall

The Newhall Band has announced to 4BR that it has a new principal cornet as the previous incumbent of the seat retires after 11 years service.

 

The Newhall Band from South Derbyshire are pleased to announce that Sheila Dixon is the bands new Principal Cornet. Sheila has been a solid member of the frontbench team for the last couple of years and as a result of her hard work and constant improvement has
taken up the challenge of this crucial seat.

MD Mark Phillips says that he is looking forward to working with Sheila in 2007 and believes that good times lie ahead for the Newhall Band.

11 years service

Newhall would like to thank retiring principal cornet Michael
Pattinson for all his hard work over the last 11 years and wish him all the best for the future.

The band are also delighted to announce the signings
of Dave Lucas on Bb Bass from Ibstock Band and James Johnston as principal percussionist. Also Becky Stonehouse rejoins the band on Flugel Horn.

The band is now preparing for the 3rd section regional
championships in March
