Here's a few photos and a short video from yesterday's official opening of the Magdalen Green Bandstand, following its successful and lovely restoration :

Pat Orr, a founding member of the Friends of Magdalen Green, cut the ribbon to re-open the bandstand, with Sandra McDowall (Secretary) and Catherine Fairweather (Chair) of the Friends (who both gave excellent speeches) looking on, as is Peter Menzies, Chair of West End Community Council, who compared the event

It was a lovely afternoon and the Friends of Magdalen Green and all others - council officers, the contractor's team and the local community whose support was vital in achieving such a great result - are all owed a great deal of thanks for all they did to achieve such a superb result.
