The band welcomes support of all kinds !  

This may include, joining our Monthly Prize Draw and/or Band Associate Member Scheme (see below), helping at our concerts (making tea/coffee, selling raffle tickets), photocopying and distributing Monthly Prize Draw letters, mentoring Youth Band players in rehearsal (do you play yourself ?) and many more. 

MONTHLY PRIZE DRAW (formerly `200 Club`)

Members of the public, band members, friends of the band are invited to join our `Monthly Prize Draw`, membership is made by paying £1/month or £12/year (a standing order can be made).

Draws take place at the end of each month with 3 monthly prizes (£25, £15 & £5) and 2 six-monthly draws at the end of October & April (£50 & £25). The Monthly Prize Draw (formerly `200 Club`) has been in existence since the mid 1980`s and the profit from this is used for special purposes. It has in the past bought us new Uniforms, Banners & Instruments - it will never be used for the general running of the band. The Monthly Prize Draw is currently run by the bands`s Contest Secretary, Andy Cresswell.

BAND ASSOCIATE MEMBER SCHEME (formerly Patron Scheme):

Our Associate Membership scheme runs from April to March of the following year. A payment of £7.50/year/member entitles our Associate Members to several benefits including:- 

. CONCERT REQUESTS at our St.Chads concerts

. BAND NEWSLETTERS - whenever we have important information/announcements

. DISCOUNTED BAND MERCHANDISE - Including Ties and our C.D.
