Mugs, publicity and Twitter...

October 15th 2018

Hi All A few very sensible people have started bringing their own mugs/cups to rehearsal for tea and coffee. This is something we should all be moving towards if possible. Enviromentally speaking it will save us from using all those plastic and polystyrene cups and bearing in mind the temperature of the water, it will save a lot of scorched fingers. So if at all possible can members start bringing their own re-usable receptacles to rehearsal. Secondly, we are trying to find new avenues for publicity. If ...Continue Reading

Re: From AB Rehearsal schedule

October 10th 2018

Dear AllA pair of glasses in a case marked 'DEC2013' were left at the rehearsal on Monday night. I think they belong to a member of the string section based upon where they were located. I have them now. I will bring them along next Monday although if anyone would like to claim them before the rehearsal I work in Bromley and could arrange to exchange after work.  Alternatively you could visit the the sunny village of West Kingsdown along the A20 just past Brands Hatch.Regards,James  & ...Continue Reading

Re: Redaction of soloists finances

July 2nd 2018

Dear SarahI feel some points need making here.  Usually “Reply All” should be avoided, but in this instance as you have addressed the entirety of the membership it is appropriate to copy them in.The Secretary is not prevented from contributing to discussions at the AGM.  If these points were of relevance to any of the discussions at the most recent AGM there was the opportunity then to air them.  We pay our soloists fees, because they are contracted to provide services to us. &nb ...Continue Reading

Redaction of soloists finances

July 2nd 2018

Hi All You may remember the redaction of financial information was discussed at the AGM. I want to outline why I insisted and will continue to insist that this is redacted.

These legal basis apply to each process of the data therefore the sharing with the committee and sharing with the membership will each need a lawful basis. Out ...Continue Reading
