The AGM was held last night and members heard that the Charity and Ensembles have had a good year, but that there were concerns reported by the Treasurer that membership income was down over £500 last year and it is projected that at current rates membership income will be down an additional £500 over the next year.
If you have not joined the charity to support the ensembles this year, it's not too late to do so. Click HERE to find out more. Our hope that every ensemble player will have a paid up member of the charity in their family.
AGM Reports will be posted on the committee and individual ensembles website pages if you wish to read more. www.bayo-hampshire.org.uk
