Have your say

THE first concert at a council’s newly-refurbished offices has been hailed a success.

The Highbury Area Band performed for the Mayor of Havant’s charity appeal at Havant Public Service Plaza.

It’s the first time a performance has been held at the offices since the £13m upgrade.

The concert was for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and Dorothy’s Dream, The Rowans Hospice At Home Appeal, and raised £555.

Mayor Ken Smith said: ‘Everyone thought the acoustics were brilliant.’
