Jacky started playing at
Fowey School under the influences of teachers Goff Richards and the late
Frank Moore. She then started at St. Blazey under conductor Cecil Brewer
and went on to Lostwithiel Youth with the great Mervyn Sweet.
Jacky then moved to Lostwithiel Silver and Mount Charles, and finally
settled at Bugle playing alongside David Jane on the front row. After a
spell on cornet, she moved to play the Tenor Horn, and is finally to date
playing Repiano Cornet.
Both Jacky’s children, Emma and Michael, have played in local brass
bands. Emma is now concentrating on bringing up her two children,
Clara and Harvey, and Michael is in the Royal Marines Band in Scotland.
When both of her children opened the Music For Youth Festival in the Royal
Albert Hall, playing “Fanfare For The Common Man”.
Jacky likes playing in Bugle Silver Band:
“Band can be relaxing and enjoyable with good friends.
Band is like an extended family, and a bolt hole from my stressful but
enjoyable daily work as a funeral director at Ken Newcombe’s”.
