Solo Cornet & Bandmaster

He has always played for HSB and believes he always will. Cary works in his own vehicle body shop.

Repiano Cornet
Eleanor Holmes

Eleanor started the trumpet at the age of eight and later joined the band as 3rd cornet. She has recently moved on to repiano cornet which she enjoys as she can now 'play the tune' rather than the accompaniment, whilst still keeping up with the gossip on the back row.

Eleanor has a busy life at school in Exeter but finds time to play in goal in the hockey team and to cox for the local rowing club.

2nd Cornet
Jane Fawcett

Jane has made the step from the Training Band to the senior band in a short space of time. She spends her day as a Primary School Teacher, Mum and house-fairy!! Jane's other hobbies include Walking, Talking, Drinking and eating - not necessarily in that order.
