Principal Solo Cornet
Mike Boother

Solo Cornet & Bandmaster
Cary Brock

Cary is a local lad who now proudly sits on the front row following recent stints in the Solo Baritone Chair and also on Solo Euphonium. He is also the Bandmaster and keeps us all in order.

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

Cary is married and has two young children. Cary also has been given the title of best chest in the band by the ladies!

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.

2nd Cornet
Ciaran Hopkins

3rd Cornet
Alex Cole

Alex has been playing in the Training band for a couple of years but now plays with the Senior Band. He had his first contest with us in November and attends every engagement with the band.

Jade Morris

Jade has Graduated from The University of Plymouth and will now be undertaking her next degree.

Jade has a real talent for the Cornet and plays with the band whenever she is back home in Hatherleigh.

Lucy Fawcett

Lucy is currently living in the Netherlands with her partner and teaches at a Primary School there. She is often back in Hatherleigh to visit her Mum and Dad and always plays with the band when she can. She only took up playing brass in 2012 but is an accomplished musician on the Viola.
