Car Hire Luton Airport are pleased with the project of a modern bandstand being built to showcase the local talent.
A project in Luton to build a bandstand in Wardown Park has recently had an official launch held. The four Rotary clubs of Luton, along with the Rotary Youth Trust for Luton, have joined together to design and build a modern bandstand to be known as the Rotary Bandstand.
The target is to have the work completed by the summer next year, with the project costing around £250,000 with £150,000 in funding already secured. More than 100 guests attended the corporate launch event at Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf and Spa. Its aim was to encourage local businesses and people from the community to show their support and help to spread the word.
The Rotary Bandstand’s Patron, Lord Bill McKenzie, said “I am both honoured and privileged to be patron of such a worthwhile project. Luton has a wealth of talent and having a bandstand to showcase it will be wonderful. The charity will look to help local people for generations to come.”
Alan Corkhill, Chair of the Rotary Bandstand Steering Group, said “It is wonderful to see so many people here, supporting this venture. We have all come together to share in a glorious vision for Luton. This is such a large project with so much work still to do but, with so much goodwill and our confidence in the people, businesses and all of us working together for Luton, the Rotary Bandstand is now a huge step closer to a reality.”
