Lia also recently moved to Camborne Town Band, helping them out for the Annual SWBBA Championships in Torquay on the 3rd November. The band won the overall contest in the Championship Section. Following these brilliant results, she decided to make the move from St Dennis to Camborne Town.

Lia said: “Camborne is regarded Cornwall’s most famous and successful brass band, so I’m really privileged to have been asked to join them. I will be playing 3rd man down. Also, the Principal Cornet used to play with Black Dyke – the world’s most famous band! I have some great help there!”
