Quatermaster: Mr Frank Yeoman
I first became involved with the band in 1978 when we moved from the East End of London to Elm Park. It was after my son Ian had joined the band that I started to help out in any way I could, and being very enthusiastic I got involved in many things.
It was in the later years that I was approached by Mr. Peter Richardson and was asked if I would become the Band's Quartermaster, this I accepted with pride. With this position I became an officer within the Band and later the liason between the Fundraising Committee and the Band.
Their are many projects that I have been involved with within the organisation and I will continue to serve this Band with pride and honour.
Assistant Quatermaster: Mr Bert Waite
Bert first became involved in the band in 1964 when his son joined the band. He was made and Officer in 1966. After many years in the Band, Bert took a break from the band in 1992 and returned in 2000.
Since returning, Bert has been Assistant Quartermaster to Frank Yeoman. Bert loves everything about the band and looks forward to many years more with the band.
Officer: Mrs Sarah Adams
I joined the Band in October 1988 at the young age of 7 following in my Mum and Dad's footsteps, and took part in my first Band Contest at the same age. The reason I joined so young was because the Band were so low on numbers and Mr Richardson allowed this. During my time in the Band, I have played the Clarinet, Cornet, Horn and Euphonium. I enjoy the social life the Band provides and the friendships that I have made.
I have been awarded the Sergeant of the Year award on two occasions and also received the Peter Richardson B.E.M Endeavour Award. I have lots of involvement on the admin side of the Band and in 2004 I undertook the task of organising the Street Collection and Presentation Nite.
I was promoted to Colour Sergeant in 2004, my main duties were the welfare of the girls in the Band and assisting the Female Officer. In December 2005 I was promoted to Band Sergeant Major, and in January 2009 I was promoted to Officer. I look forward to the new role and the responsibilities it holds.
