Solo Trombone
Robert Barkwell

Robert is a local lad. He rejoined the band in 2004 after a long break and moves deftly between Solo Trombone, Bass Trombone and Bb Bass. Robert has his own plumbing business in Okehampton. In his few minutes of spare time, Robert is a great Rugby supporter and works hard locally in this respect.

Bass Trombone
Thomas Boother

Tom is our Bass Trombone player and Hatherleigh folk will have got used to seeing Tom performing 'acrobatics' in the square since he was just 11 years old.

Thomas is a very keen sportsman and regularly plays football and cricket plus is a keen supporter of Exeter City.

Martha Fawcett

Martha has been away for the last three years studying for her Medical Degree with she achieved with First Class Honours and is now following her clinical training in London. She plays with the band whenever she is home in Devon.

Hatherleigh folk will be more used to seeing Martha singing Classical pieces and what a wonderful singer she is. She started to play the Trombone in 2006 in the Training Band and has proved to be a very capable player since coming into the Senior Band and plays other instruments too. Her hobbies include Riding and Music.
