Solo Trombone
Robert Barkwell

Robert is a local lad. He rejoined the band in 2003 after a long break from banding. 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.

Elliott Green

Elliott started playing trombone at the age of 10 at his local Nottingham band, and has gone on to play at various levels across the country due to studying engineering at the University of Leeds, and now working in London.

The highlight of Elliott's playing career has been playing with the Carlton Main Frickley band. He has also sat on all 3 trombone seats in the Harrogate Band, Hucknall and Linby Brass and the National Methodist Youth Brass Band, occasionally playing euphonium in the latter two bands as well.

Elliott has played regularly with Hatherleigh Silver Band since the 2016 areas, playing trombone and on one occasion baritone.

Elliott is currently a design engineer for installing automatic trains on the London Underground, working in Canary Wharf and living in East London.

Bass Trombone
Tim Williams

Thomas Boother

Tom plays both Bass and Tenor Trombone 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.

He has just joined HM Royal Marines Band Service and will be leaving us in September to start his training and his new exciting career. We wish him every success and will miss him.

Martha Fawcett

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

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.
