We won't bite
Fairlop is a local band who contest in the Third Section Nationally and Second Section Locally. We meet once a week at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Fencepeice Road, Barkingside. The Band is unique in that it is not run by Comittee, but is instead an autonomous collective of musicians, with a successful Musical Director (Kevin Jordan). Some of the players volunteer to carry out 'tasks' on behalf of the whole band. So far it has worked. The band is now 50 years old and the method has not changed. The Band does not take itself too seriously, but still maintains a goal of musical improvement, individually and as a collective.
The Band exists by charging players a token amount (subscriptions) per month. This covers the hall, purchase of music, and booking of venues. The subscription is subsidised by concerts and events given by the band during the year, as well as an 'in house lottery' called the 100 club.
