Tonight saw the band host its Annual General Meeting virtually on Zoom. It was good to see all the band and have a catch up as well as do the official business. It has been a strange year, but as a band, we have stuck together.
At the end of the meeting, the presentation of awards took place, virtually. The first trophy which was awarded was The David Waterworth trophy for Player of the Year, as nominated by David & Phillip.
This was awarded to our percussion player Charlotte Tait
The second trophy which was awarded was The Most Improved Section Trophy
This was awarded to the Euphonium and Baritone section
The third trophy which was awarded was The Alan Beaumont Most Improved Player, as nominated by Alan & Phillip.
This was awarded to our Principal Euphonium player Jonathan Wigham
The fourth trophy which was awarded was Bandsperson of the Year.
This was awarded to Tim Packer.
The final award which was awarded this year was to Michael Evans for his 45 Years of dedicated service to the band. The band members helped create this award by thinking of words that summed up Michael and his time with the band. Some of these included: passionate, dedicated, Last Post, post horn, Santa Claus, perfectionist, Switzerland, 1975, helpful, conductor, memories, family and friends.
A big congratulations goes to all of the award winners
