South West Trains Woodfalls Band has announced three new joiners ahead of the upcoming National Championships of Brass Bands in October.

Meanwhile, Martin Dean joins the trombone section also from Woodfalls Concert Brass. Martin takes over from Lloyd Bartlett who has had to step back from the band due to external commitments. Martin renews a trombone partnership with long time friend, Scott Stewart from their time as members of Test Valley Brass.
