BEGINNER and skilled musicians are needed for a new training band.

Markham Main Colliery Band wants anyone, any age, who is keen to learn to play a brass instrument, or those who have previously played and wish to restart.

The Armthorpe-based band has instruments available to lend to players, free of charge.

Free expert tuition is also on offer.

The band will meet for the first time on Saturday, November 3, at 10am in the bandroom next to Armthorpe Community Centre in Church Street.
