Friary Appoint New Management Team

On Monday 25 April, the Friary Guildford Band took time out from a normal rehearsal to hold our Annual General Meeting at Chobham Club.

The meeting was an opportunity to look back over the last year at the band's successes, which include retaining our title as London & Southern Counties Champion Band, qualifying for the National Finals for the fourth consecutive year, as well as earning promotion at the British Open Spring Festival to the Grand Shield in 2016.

Outgoing Management Team members provided annual reports, and Chairman, Nigel Stevens, took the opportunity to provide band members with an update on how we're progressing against our objectives – many of which have been achieved during the last year, including competing at Brass in Concert, reaching top 30 in the world rankings, and qualifying for the Grand Shield contest.

In line with our Charity Commission Constitution, members of the Management Team were elected for the coming year:

Officers and Trustees:

Chairman: Nigel Stevens

Secretary: Lauren Straker

Treasurer: Jane Challiss

Band Manager: David Wicks


Contest Secretary: Alex Stevens

Digital Media Manager: Richard Straker
