VETERANS of World War Two are invited to a special event in Christchurch.

The Christchurch and District Band will put on a concert, For Queen and Country, at the Regent Centre later this year.

The concert will begin at 7pm on November 2 and organisers are appealing for D-Day veterans to take part in the event.

The Royal British Legion will be running a raffle and all proceeds will go to the Poppy Appeal, with service charities in the foyer.

Should any D-Day veterans wish to take part in the event contact musical director Steff Emmett on 07974 320122 or email md@christchurchan
