Blowing their trumpets

For someone special…

Kate (Miller) Sandford and her husband Julian Sandford (pictured on the right) are both State Trumpeters of the Household Cavalry and took part, with colleagues at the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral service at Windsor. Kate was born and brought up in Slawston and four generations of her family currently live and farm there.

Kate was originally taught music by Roger Garratt and then played for the Harborough Brass Band, before studying music at Huddersfield University. She and Julian were married in All Saints, Slawston, with colleagues giving them stirring fanfares!
