Martin Binsley, the 3rd Section-renowned solo cornet player with the Tree Creepers (Take The Weight) Band is off to South Africa on banding adventures.
Martin told the Bandstand, "I'm off to South Africa. It's just a holiday for me and the wife, Mavis. But having such a high profile as we do over here I hope to hook up with some South African bands and do stuff like banding and shit".
President of the South African Brass Band Association, Norman de Boer, said, "We're fine thanks".
