On Monday 27 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 success, which include winning the Spring Festival Senior Trophy, winning 'Most Entertaining' Band at Butlins, as well as qualifying for the National Finals for the third consecutive year.
