Hampshire County Youth Band 2021/2022 at the September Fairthorne residential weekend under the baton of Jon Cranston


The Hampshire County Youth Band Association, of which all parents of current members are automatically members, is holding its AGM on Saturday 13th November 2021 at Perins School, Alresford at 11.am.
Please come and find out what we have been doing this year to support the bands and about our future plans.
Please see below the agenda, the minutes of the previous AGM and a nomination form for committee members.

Help needed with refreshments

We use an app called SignUp for our refreshment volunteer rota. It is easy to use and you do not share your email with others. SignUp slots for refreshments in 2021/22 are now available by following this updated link. Please share this link with other band parent friends and encourage them to join you so that we spread the workload and so it doesn’t always fall to the same kind hearts: https://signup.com/go/sviddKk

New committee members needed

With the departure of several county band members at the end of this academic year, sadly we shall lose some experienced committee members in the Autumn. It would therefore be prudent for potential incoming committee members to put themselves forward now to shadow the outgoing members. We anticipate vacancies for the following roles:

Treasurer – ideally suited to someone with experience of accountancy

Secretary – this role requires knowledge of MS Office and Google tools and some administrative skills

Website/social media – Some web and Google experience but no coding required. Website in WordPress.

Please email expressions of interest to chairmanhcyba@gmail.com

Display of band merchandise

On Saturday 28th March 2020 during rehearsals there will be a stall at Perins next to the refreshments area (or outside if the weather is fair) so members and family can see and try on samples of HCYBA branded goods available to order. Branded blankets, suit carriers and fleece jackets (in adult and youth or junior sizes) will be on display alongside branded insulated mugs and other small gift items. All goods can be ordered at any time. Please see this page for details. All proceeds support the bands.
