Spennymoor Town Band has a new instrument to show off.
To help with the shortage of trombone players, the band has bought a new valve trombone. This will make it easier for a "valve player" to join the trombone section.
Anyone interested in joining the band, on trombone or any other instrument, is urged to ring 01388 662611 or see the band when out-and-about.
Instruction can be arranged for adult learners and younger players are welcome at the Spennymoor Youth Band.
Pictured are players Craig and George showing the two different types of trombone - traditional side and our new valve.
