A GROUP was making some noise in Basingstoke town centre on Monday last week to attract new members.

Old Basing Royal British Legion Corps of Drums members were outside Primark, in The Malls Shopping Centre, as the group is seeking to recruit more members.

Current members were on hand to give passers-by the opportunity to have a go with their instruments.

Paul Graham, a member of the corps, said: “I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone to came and watched us. Myself and the other band members look forward to meeting the people that took a interest in to the band and are looking to join.”

New players of all abilities are welcome to join, they only need be over the age of 10.

The group meets at the Old Basing Royal British Legion Club, Crown Lane, Old Basing, every Sunday from 10.15am to noon.
