Dorchester's Durnovaria band were providing Christmas shoppers with some cheerful and seasonal music this weekend.
They were asking for donations towards the Mayor's fund which is at present raising money for a project that is supported by the Dorset Wildlife Trust. The Mayor, Peter Mann explained to me that the project's aim is to plant a grass free lawn in the Borough Gardens. This is where the Durnovaria Band often perform during the summer months. Many residents value the gardens which provide a versatile green space in the centre of Dorchester.
There were other musical genres performing in town today!
I was interested to see the 'Hurdy Gurdy' being played.
Thank you to everyone who has taken an interest in reading my blog, I am rarely short of subjects to write about in the very friendly and historical town of Dorchester. I wish all my readers a very Merry Christmas.
