Captain Simon Donal, said: “Don’t be put off by the army bit, the band is a very friendly group who want to offer music tuition to young people in a structured learning environment.

“Once a band member, we can offer you free tuition and instrument loan. There are vacancies for flute, clarinet, cornet, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, euphonium and tuba.
