Coronavirus? We’re still happy say 14th Eastleigh Scout and Guide Band!

The 14th Eastleigh Scout and Guide Band, “The Spitfires”, have recorded a video to bring a smile to people’s faces despite the Coronavirus outbreak.

Assistant Band Master Emma Thompson explains:

“On Saturday evening, the band were due to hold a concert for the Mayor of Eastleigh’s Charity Appeal, however as a result of the current Coronavirus situation the concert couldn’t go ahead.

The band also aren’t able to attend their usual rehearsals together. Instead of letting this get us down, we set our members a challenge: record a video of you (and any family members who’d like to join in) playing and dancing along to ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams, as recorded on the Spitfires’ CD “Flying High”, which we recorded in 2018.”

The band shared the video to their Facebook page and YouTube at the time they should have been starting the Mayor’s Appeal concert, and, says Emma it’s brought smiles and laughs to many people.
