SAVE SWANAGE BANDSTAND
The Friends of Swanage Bandstand are a local group who have started raising funds to reinstate, preserve, restore and ensure the continued use of the bandstand.
The Friends of Swanage Bandstand Match Councils Contribution!
FOSB reached an important milestone when its pledges and donations reached £50,000 matching the amount pledged by Swanage Town Council. At a presentation at the bandstand the FOSB team and supporters presented a symbolic cheque to Swanage Mayor.
On the 9th May FOSB met up with 5 of our local councillors, and several of our supporters at the bandstand and presented a cheque to the Town Mayor to the value of £50,000. With the Council pledge of £50,000 this gave a total of £100,000. Since then our new total is over £112,400 and we keep on going.
This is not the end of the story and there is a long way to go as Friends of Swanage Bandstand now have the task of raising the balance up to the £160,000 estimated cost.
