The Big Band Buffet is back

One of the most popular events in the calendar is to return later this month.


Test Valley Borough Council’s Big Band Buffet will once again offer visitors the chance to enjoy an afternoon full of live music while meeting with friends and speaking to new people.


On January 25, Test Valley School in Stockbridge will host the buffet between 11am and 3pm for residents over the age of 55. The event, featuring the Clive Fortune Big Band, will have a number of speakers from community organisations who will offer advice on safety, how to keep active and how best to stay healthy.


Among the speakers for the even bigger 2020 event are Hampshire Constabulary, the NHS, Age Concern and Places Leisure.


Hampshire Constabulary and Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service will present information on crime prevention and home and fire safety, while representatives of the Police and Crime Commissioner will attend as well as those from the West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group, and others. The event is also sponsored by the Police and Crime Commissioner.


Community and leisure portfolio holder, councillor Tony Ward, said: “Every year this event proves to somehow be more popular than the last, and with even more speakers at the 2020 event, I’m sure this will be no different.


“Residents often tell me how much they appreciate this event and it’s a credit to the council and to the partner organisations that we can help to offer something like this.”
