|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.
Michael Childs, Peter Parker, Roy Sadler, Bob Cooper, Unknown, Alan Little, Richard
Shepherd, Ronald Colman.
Billy Thirtle, David Cox, Sunny Sadler, Billy Cooper, Cyril Rich, John Nockells, Ray
Barton, Peter Turner, Billy Rawlings, Ray Hill.
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
I hope you find my few words of interest.

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
