'It was always a constitutional rule that FFC would try its very hardest to be totally non-elitist and encourage everyone to come along, regardless of age, experience or ability. There are no auditions to join and people drop in and out of the group according to their own priorities. We have a constant core of about 30 players and we play about 3 concerts per year, raising monies for local charities or deserving causes ... Our repertoire is highly eclectic – anything goes here – film scores, TV tunes, standard classical repertoire, Jazz and much, much more. We try hard to please everyone – it’s not always possible, but we do our best!'

'Playing the flute can be a solitary occupation, particularly for adults. Many adults find that their instruments are unused and musical talents forgotten after school or college, when the pressures of careers and family take hold. Our aim is to give amateur flute players, especially (though not exclusively) adults, a club at which they can meet to play music together and revitalise their skills.'
