SHOPPING is never one of my favourite past times, but I am delighted to say that the experience was made far more bearable on Saturday May 7, by the superb entertainment provided on the pedestrian precinct by the Saint Augustine School Music department band.
They were superb, and very professional, a credit to themselves, their school, and their teachers and the musical director for an extremely entertaining performance. How refreshing to see young people succeeding in an activity that they obviously enjoy.
I hope they realise how lucky they are in being able to develop musician skills that many of us envy but never had the opportunity to pursue.
In closing I would say once again, well done, and you all deserve any success you may enjoy in the future.
Mr F Dore
