Annabel said: “A lot of love and thought has gone in to creating something that showcases the best of Hampshire and we hope it will be embraced by the local community and bring a little cheer in to all our lives.

“We are over the moon to have the Hampshire Youth Brass Band as youth arts is something my dad was so passionate about.”
