Music and mince pies on the Solent

Argos to move out of town centre

Have your say

HOLIDAYMAKERS and local people sailing from Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight with Wightlink this weekend will be serenaded on the Solent by the Junior Highbury Area Band.

Its musical director, Richard Horn, who works in the ferry company’s cashiers office at Gunwharf, will be taking the young musicians to play Christmas music and other popular classics on board Wightlink’s flagship St Clare on Saturday.

Customers will be treated to free mince pies from Greggs bakery – which is soon to have a counter installed on board.
