    Thank you to everyone that has taken part in the Friends of Glossop Old Band prize draw.The July 2017 / 13th "Friends of Glossop Old Band" prize draw has taken place. There were 157 numbers (155 of which are allocated to members) in the draw, so a prize fund of £77.50 Winning numbers were: 1st prize - 105 2nd prize - 5 3rd prize - 95Just to explain, as we are now into month 13, this means we have seen the first round of renewals.  From the 104 numbers due for renewal, 102 numbers have renewed - meaning that the 2 that haven't, now have different rules applied to them (Any unsold numbers up to and including 100 will remain the property of the band, and if drawn, the prize will go into band funds in addition to the 50% stated) - both numbers are under 100.  These 2 numbers will be held unallocated until the October draw when they will be open for re-allocation - unless the original member contacts us before 30 September 2017.
