Re your issue No 16 13-06-03 the band was actually the old Sheringham junior band of which I was a member. The photograph was taken in the old Church Rooms at West Cliff which is now Temple Court Flats. All though it was the junior band most players also played with the senior band hence some members in uniform.    The members names as follows.
Back row.
Michael Childs, Peter Parker, Roy Sadler, Bob Cooper, Unknown, Alan Little, Richard Shepherd, Ronald Colman.
Centre row.
Billy Thirtle, David Cox, Sunny Sadler, Billy Cooper, Cyril Rich, John Nockells, Ray Barton, Peter Turner, Billy Rawlings, Ray Hill.
Front row.
Pat Devy, Alan Frostick, Charlie Randal, Albert Saddler, (Deputy Bandmaster) Henry Bishop, (Bandmaster). Michael Saddler, Derek Little, Bob Goffin.

This band competed at Belle Vue Manchester in the all England championship in 1947 and I am sure we came in second place. The photo shown was taken in 1946 on return from the contest in Leicester. I have the same copy as I am on the photo and continued to until August 1990.
I hope you find my few words of interest.

New Members Offer Vital Support
The Sheringham Little Theatre Society held its 30th Annual General Meeting under the chairmanship of the President, Lord Walpole. The Arts, Literature and Drama officers as well as a report of the work of the Theatre Council gave annual reports. Mike Crowe presented a report on communications within the Society aimed at improving the link between the Board of Trustees, the Council and the members of the Society.  Thanks were expressed to retiring officers of the Society, John Meikle, Thalia Dix, Julie Weston, and to Terry Nolan who had served for 5 years as Chairman of the Board. David Brown was appointed the new Chairman. Other new appointments were: Dave Phillips and Neil Batchelor (Board), Colin Prentice (drama officer), John Rattle (music appreciation officer), Tony and Judy Langridge (coffee bar rota supervisor), Nona Gray (wardrobe supervisor), Julie Thompson (200 club organiser), Mike Rayner and Peter Baldwin (Council). All these members volunteering their services ensure the continuation and success of the Theatre.  During National Volunteers week earlier this month, the Theatre held an open day to celebrate the work of the volunteers. There was an opportunity to have a conducted tour behind the scenes of the Theatre and new recruits joined the 90 volunteers already enjoying life at Sheringham Little Theatre. The Theatre is always on the lookout for more evening and coffee bar staff, ushers, front of house staff, backstage help and programme sellers. If you would like to be involved please call the box office and ask for an application form.
