Please make every effort to attend as this gives you the ability to find out more information about the band and the way that the organisation operates.
All committee positions are available for nomination, and we ask that you consider the posts that are available - we're always looking for new people to be involved!

Joy Porter is standing down from her position of Secretary. Her job is to take minutes during the committee meetings, help with booking venues and dealing with engagement requests, as well as dealing with all general correspondence.
All job descriptions can be found on our website.

Jayne Howlett will also be doing a short presentation at the AGM about Watchet and the plans in place so far and a Q+A session.
