   AOB

             Best wishes to the Association from Ray Cunnington and apologies that he couldn`t attend
              the AGM and a very kind donation of £25 received from Ray, which is very much appreciated.

             Is there any way we can get support from member Bands. David Newman suggests a poster
              at Groby asking ‘is your Band represented’, Kirk Turner to look at and also put on the website.
              Lynne will put a note in the October Contest programme re stewards for the November
              Contest.

             Joan Ball asked if the website could be looked at and updated. KT will look at but Bands
              need to advise if their details change. A new welcome from Betty to be put on, other than that
              we are very grateful to Kirk for a very well run website.

             Protocol, if Kirk gets a request through the admin link on the website for jobs, Lesley will
              continue to circulate to LBBA association bands and ask them to deal direct with the
              organisers if they are interested.
