Hampshire Guitar Orchestra in pictures - 2005
Welcome to our gallery of photos from 2005 - highlights of just some of the things we've been up to...
January 27th and it's our very first Long Service Awards
Here are (from left to right) Janet, Rich, Viv, Philip and Heather
Each with a certificate and gift to celebrate 100 rehearsals
On 24th February, we celebrated hago's 6th birthday
...and here we are devouring those birthday cakes!
In July, we played at St James' Emsworth
All the kneelers are hand-embroided, no two the same...
Less than a week later we put on a concert at St Agatha's Church Portsmouth - here's hago at the end of our set.
The concert was held on the very evening of the London bombings, and our closing item, Schindler's List, was dedicated to all those killed and injured, and to their families and friends.
Read more and watch our video on our special gallery page.
From the sublime to the very ridiculous indeed.
hago were invited to play at the Birdman of Bognor 2005, and here is what it's about - the "Flatulent Fairies" trying to fly for charity.
Lots more pictures in our Birdman of Bognor Gallery.
Jon, our Leader in 2005, hands over a contra guitar to Avril in a celebration following its outright purchase.
Here's the team obviously enjoying our new rehearsal venue!
In November we introduced two new altos - read the story here
Also in November we journeyed up to Petersfield, to play at Love Lane Community Centre in aid of Cecily's Fund - here we are in the Green Room...
Thanks to Brian Gilmour for the photo
As the camera steps back, you can see the Green Room really is Green
