The Alan Brown Trophy

Alan was an enthusiastic sponsor of the band; a musician himself, he understood the hard work and dedication that is required to rehearse and perform a piece of music. He wanted to give the members of the band a goal to aim for, and thus was borne the Alan Brown trophy.

Each year before the Spring Concert every member of the band is given a voting slip; on this they must make a first and second choice (in case of a tie) of band member who they feel has excelled musically through the year - the guidance given is 'the player's player'.
