Honorary Life President


Trevor Oldfield

Joined the Newbold Carnival Band back in July 1953 and learned to play the Trumpet. In 1958 with the change of Name he became 2nd Drum Major of the Newbold Toppers Carnival Band and also WON the C.B.S.L. League Championships.

The following year he was promoted to Lead Drum Major of the renamed Chesterfield Toppers Carnival Band.
In around 1962 he reverted back to the Trumpet and like all good members he helped out by guest appearing as bass Drummer too. 1965 saw him start his climb up the ladder as he was elected as assistant Secretary and the following year elected as Hon. General/Financial Manager. A post he has held until this present date.
From 1970 he switched his Trumpet to a Flugel Horn, which he managed to play right up until 1997, before moving back to the Trumpet.
Trevor performed right into his 7th Decade despite crippling pain and a full knee replacement along the way.
