On Saturday 27 July, the brilliant Riverside Concert Band, which is based in Bishopstoke, put on a concert at the Bandstand in Eastleigh Recreation Ground from 12-2pm. The afternoon turned out hot and sunny after a drizzly start, and many a passer-by and shopper stopped to listen awhile. The programme ranged through film and show tunes to classic pop.
The idea was to raise funds for One Community, so a couple of us had collection buckets. We lost count of the compliments, both about the band and One Community, so it was a very pleasant couple of hours listening to some talented musicians – and we raised some money too!
