Ashleigh Quinn (9) and ten-year-old Delaine Johnson (right) were learning to play their instruments with Mel Hopkin in 2002.

They were just two of those who took up the challenge laid down by Holbeach Town Band to learn to play a brass instrument in just one week. All the beginners were playing simple tunes by the end of the week, and many had learned how to read music.

They were aged between eight and 70 and learned to play a variety of instruments, including cornet, trombone and euphonium.
