Blowing hot at Jazz at the Barn

The jazz was hot and the day was warm and sunny when the Friends of St Peter’s held their “Jazz at the Barn” event  at the Great Barn on Sunday. 


The Solent City Jazzmen entertained with a fascinating selection of jazz tunes in the Dixieland style while the many visitors sat at tables in the open air enjoying the music, the hog roast rolls provided by Hadlows the Butchers and the occasional beer and bottle of wine from the bar.  

Chair of Friends of St Peter’s, Pat Shirley, said, “The afternoon went extremely well, good food, good music and great weather.

“We raised over £1000. Special thanks go to Aiden and Hadlows our village butchers who donated and cooked the hog and to TFT for the use of the Barn.”

“The FoSP provide appropriate funding for building or repair works within St Peter's and your continued  support is very much appreciated in enabling us to do this.”

The ’Friends’ next event will be the Christmas Tree Festival held on the 7th, 8th and 9th December.

Hopefully some of you will want to exhibit a tree, but if not make it a date for your diary anyway as this will be a 'must see' event.

There will be lots of acts performing throughout the 3 days, which will be publicise nearer the time.

Contact FoSP if you wish to exhibit a tree.
