On April 16th, the band met up with the Mayor of Gosport, Councillor Diane Furlong, who invited members of the band to the town hall.
Gosport Solent Brass are fortunate to have a great relationship with the Gosport Council and especially the current Mayor, who generously offered the band a financial grant at our meet up.
The Mayor congratulated the band on the current achievements, both on our contesting success and for allowing children to learn to play a musical instrument for free, and offered to display our West Of England Regional winning trophy, as part of the mayoral collection which contains many various and fascinating trophies, shields and other prizes.
The band will be playing at the Gosport Mayor Making ceremony on Wednesday 15th May and will support Gosport by welcoming the new Mayor, but we would like to thank Diane once again for her keen interest and enthusiasm in the band’s activities (she was one of the first people to congratulate us on our West Of England win back in March), and for her support. Thank you, Diane Furlong.
