Upon moving to the Cambridge area 30 or so years ago, Peter played Cornet and Flugelhorn with the Fulbourn & Teversham British Legion Band, followed by a long stint as Haverhill’s Flugelhorn player. Having had some time off due to work commitments, he returns to the horn section. Pete has conducted many bands in the area and for several years has successfully guided Cottenham Brass.

After graduating, Matthew played for Waterbeach Brass before joining Haverhill in 2019.

First Horn – Trevor Foster


Having started to play in 1957 and taught by his father, Trevor is a real veteran and stalwart in the banding world known especially for his time with Aveley which is where he hails from, and other London bands such as Newham, Medway and Beacontree. He has played previously in many Albert Hall finals and has depped with bands such as Grimethorpe, Hammonds, Yorkshire Imps and YBS. He has also performed in TV and radio broadcasts and appeared in a 17 night gig at the National Theatre with the London production of Brassed Off!

Second Horn – David McClintock

Dave started on Eb Horn under David Read, back when Boosey was an apprentice and hadn’t yet met Hawkes. After grade 8, he took up the French Horn, as was the tradition at his school, and played in all the youth ensembles around Cambridgeshire.


He joined the Army as a Musician back in 1988, finishing in 1997 with the Band & Orchestra of the Royal Artillery Regiment and moved back to Cambridgeshire, joining several Orchestras and The Huntingdonshire Concert Band (HCB). David had been MD for HCB for 16 years until 2019, when he took a sabbatical. and now looks forward to taking up the position again after an extended break. He has recently completed the Trevor Head course in Brass Musical Instrument Repair and am a member of the national association NAMIR, and hopes to be offering this as a service to other brass players once my workshop is ready.

Having also taken a break from HSB in 2019, David missed the quality and friendliness of Haverhill Band and so is happy to have been offered a place back in the band and hopes his jacket still fits.
