" 14th July 2015

Dear Committee,

I wish to stand for election as Committee Chair person of Chorley Silver Band following the resignation of Andrea Hall. I d like to express my thanks to Andrea for her efforts as Chair of this committee. She has achieved a lot with the band, most notably our tour of Belgium and maintaining the band.

Chorley Silver Band is a long standing band in Chorley providing music education and enjoyment for many young players. I d like to ensure the Band s continued existence and so I am offering to volunteer myself as Chair person.

I feel I have time to devote to the development of the band, it s members and committee, as I only work part time. I have experience of working with a committee, both as an employee and as a member and have been a member of this committee for a number of years now.

I am a piano teacher and enjoy many other musical activities, playing drums, violin and guitar. My son James has played trombone in the band since he was 7 or 8 years old and enjoys attending and being part of this organisation.

Whilst I am offering my help to continue the band and develop it, I cannot do this alone and the band requires a full committee to continue. Several members are resigning, including the treasurer and we need parents to come on board to maintain the bands future.

As Chair person I pledge my support to the band and all those who volunteer to help on the committee.

Yours sincerely

Catherine Hartley"
