I AM writing on behalf of Andover Town Band to register our thanks to the generous people of Andover for their donations at the recent Farmers’ Market. A total of £219.68 was raised.

We are very grateful for this support and will use the contributions to further promote the activities of the band, to advance the opportunities for local people to participate in learning to play a brass instrument and to enable us to continue to support other charities and organisations within the community.

It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying the music and taking the time to listen and we really appreciate all the positive comments made.

If you would like to hear more of Andover’s award-winning Town Band our next concert is a Christmas celebration at St.Michael’s Church in Andover on Saturday 15 December at 7pm.
