Residents were invited to attend the second community Big Band Buffet at Test Valley School, Stockbridge, this weekend.
Residents were able to tuck in to lots of delicious food while having the opportunity to speak to local agencies to find out information about community safety, crime prevention, dementia awareness, fire safety and other topics. The event was aimed at the older communities of Test Valley and was open to residents aged 50 or over.
The Clive Fortune Big Band took centre stage throughout the event, performing an array of enchanting repertoire of big band classics and jazz standards, including originals from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, as well as a few contemporary hits. This year’s buffet and band combination follows last year’s hugely successful event which saw around 130 residents enjoy excellent music and important information in a sociable setting.
The yearly event is organised by Test Valley Borough Council and was free to attend.
