From the Chair
Now we have the total support of Swanage Town Council and the Charity Status we are respectfully calling in the pledges made by all of you fantastic people who had faith in our plan to restore our Banstand back to its original condition and colour. I would ask please if possible for Cheques to be made payable to Friends of Swanage bandstand, with stamped addressed envelopes so that we can send you a receipt if you can to save us expense and sent to me (address below). We as a group with your help have made so much progress very quickly and must keep momentum going. We need help with extra funds and people raising money in the best way that you can. We are well on target but we now need more donations please no matter how small. What makes me so proud is the fact that most of this money is from local supporters, some of whom have even topped up their pledges. Well done all of you. As a matter of interest a lady has kindly donated something I never expected to see, it's a programme of the opening concert Thursday 2nd August 1923. How wonderful was that? It will be donated to the Swanage museum on completion of the bandstand.
We are also looking for items to put into a Raffle for the bandstand which would be drawn April Bank Holiday Monday 2nd April 2018. More details will be available in due course.
Again, thank you all.
