The Surrey Police Band, formally known as the Police Unity Memorial Band, is looking forward to the new year and is keen to recruit new musicians.

It is looking for wind, brass and percussion players to join its fun and friendly band who rehearse each Thursday in Guildford, and perform various gigs and concerts throughout the year.

The band’s conductor, Graham Atterbury (BA Hons, DipABRSM), explains why the name change is so significant: “The name change means a lot to our band members who are all extremely proud to be associated with supporting the work of Surrey Police through music.

“Whether our performances are for a police event or a public event, we provide a positive image for the Surrey Police wherever we go. For us, the very fact that the police force has supported the name change reflects the good work that the band has done in the community, including raising funds for a number of charities, and for me personally, I see it as an acknowledgement in the high standard of musicians that I have the privilege to conduct.”

In 2015 the band will be raising money for the Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. The specialist services provided by the Children’s Trust come at a cost which is not fully met by statutory sources, so the charity relies on voluntary donations from supporters. By supporting the Surrey Police Band this year, you will be helping to fund building works, key members of staff, new equipment, leisure and play activities and much, much more.
