News Flash Resignation!

Dr. Nicola Weaver, that fine sax player, has parted company (amicably) with Budvivar - no doubt to develop her free-lance connections around town as they used to say in the Melody Maker many years ago.
I'm assured that the fact that this announcement arrived on the same day that Gordon Brown jumped ship is purely coincidental and that if Gordon wants to blow baritone and alto with Budvivar he will have to be democratically elected by the good burghers of Budvivarland.
Lance.
