Former Members’ List
We have a long history and had many hundreds of players over the years. We want to remember and if possible stay in touch with our former members. The objective of the COSB Reunited page is to make connections with the former members and to help them link up with contemporaries. We also hope that this will help us find out more about our band’s history.
All the names on this page have been previously published in programmes, newspaper articles or other material already published in the public domain however if your name appears and you want it removed just let us know.

Our hall CCTV operates continuously.
To ensure that you’re confident that we’re using CCTV responsibly we’ve noted our obligations below. References to we, our, or us in this policy are to the City of Oxford Silver Band.
If you have any questions about this policy or how we handle your personal information please contact the band manager at [email protected]
1.1 Before installing the CCTV we carried out a privacy impact assessment to ensure we were balancing our need for CCTV with the impact on your privacy.
1.2 We have installed CCTV to:
- monitor the security of our premises;
- help ensure the safety and security of our (and your) property and that of our members, hirers and their clients and all other hall users;
- prevent and detect crimes;
- discourage anti-social behaviour
- dealing with any queries, complaints or enquiries;
- ensure that our policies and procedures are being adhered to;
- monitor adherence to health and safety provisions and policies;
- help ensure we meet our safeguarding obligations.
As well as being the purposes for which we use your personal information, all of the above are also legitimate reasons for us to use and store personal data.
Images captured by CCTV may be monitored and recorded and kept for up to thirty days after the recording was made. After this time to recording stored on the hard drive of our CCTV system will usually be overwritten.
1.3 Any information captured by CCTV can only be viewed in a restricted area and only by authorised committee members.
1.4 The CCTV system is maintained and overseen by the hall manager. They are responsible for reviewing the ongoing need for CCTV.
1.5 Where we capture your personal data using CCTV we will let you know by using signage explaining who to contact about the CCTV and where to find the relevant privacy notice. Notices are clearly displayed in our front windows and in the hall lobby.
1.6 You have the right to view any personal data recorded by our CCTV. We may take time though to redact the personal data of anyone else on the recordings. We will first give you the opportunity to view the recordings that have been identified. We may be able to supply you with a copy of the recording unless that isn’t technically possible or to do so puts us to disproportionate effort. Help with making a Subject Access Request.
1.7 It is a criminal offence to misuse CCTV.
