Seventy members and guests of the local Branch of the Royal British Legion were recently entertained by the Volunteer Band from HMS HERON on the terrace of Burton Pynsent House.
There is no doubt that the venue enhanced the evening and the Royal British Legion is very grateful to Mr & Mrs Tim Schroder for allowing the Legion to use the grounds of Burton Pynsent for the event. Guests included the Chairman of the Royal British Legion in Somerset, Major Robert McDonald, and the Chairs of the three local Parish Councils--Curry Rivel, Drayton and Fivehead.
On a bright summer's evening, the music swelled across West Moor, as members and guests enjoyed drinks and canapés. Band Sergeant, Tom Griffin, based at Yeovilton, said:
"This is a magnificent location , probably one of the best views in Somerset. It is a pleasure to be here, helping to raise money for such a worthy cause as the Royal British Legion."
The next event will be a lunch in Curry Rivel Village Hall on Remembrance Sunday 12 November 2017.
