IT Officer

  • No change

Event Officer


Rehearsal Room Coordinators

  • Difficult to move around in room due to amount of equipment, some items removed
  • Not all items have known owners
  • Agreement was that backline equipment left in the room is free for use. Experience from Spondy's band is that parts of the backline are often missing. This leads to the room being very difficult to use for other bands.
  • We need to decide whether the band room will have a backline or not, the hybrid system we're using now isn't working. Consultation with existing bands needs to happen.


  • Difficult to stock due to supply shortages
