Pete Stoppard and Stu Payne showed why they are among the most popular of country duos on the circuit. Pete hails from London and is a ectionately known as ‘ e Cockney Cowboy’. His boundless energy for performing a wide variety of country songs got everyone in the mood to shake o the January blues. Pete is fortunate to be able to act the clown because with him on stage was Stu Payne holding everything together. Stu has been voted musician of the year for the past two years and it was obvious to all that the accolade was well deserved. With an impressive array of keyboards and guitar he proved to be the backbone of the ‘Tornados’. e next meeting will be on Saturday 7th March with ‘Laredo Duo’ keeping it country.

Councillor Fairhurst said: “The demand for social care support is growing, but the funding available to us is not keeping pace with this growth. Voluntary and community organisations provide valuable locally based services, and are often much better placed than we are to provide the early help needed to keep people well, living at home, and as independent as possible for as long as possible.” e following grants for between one to two years have been awarded: £240,000 to MHA who provide a range of services to enable older people to live a ful lled later life through community clubs. e grant will support the creation of new clubs and the introduction of home visits for severely isolated individuals. £145,000 to Good Neighbours whose networks o er a helping hand to others in their local community. e grant will be used to promote, support and develop additional neighbourhood groups. £49,894 to Autism Hampshire, continuing to fund services to support people with autism before, during and post diagnosis with advice, guidance and support. £40,000 to Age Concern Hampshire to support local volunteers in rural settings to provide information and advice for vulnerable adults in their communities, with a particular focus on supporting people at risk of social isolation and loneliness. A further £237,799 in grants is being allocated to a variety of community organisations in Basingstoke, East Hants, Fareham, Hart, Havant, New Forest and Rushmoor, as part of the Local Solutions Grant Award. ese are smaller grants to organisations whose focus is to meet the needs of people in single localities, rather than across the county. Each recipient organisation has had to demonstrate how it has engaged with local people on how best to help them to stay independent. e Forest Forge eatre in the New Forest who support a theatre group for older people, helping to break down social isolation and loneliness, and build con dence have received £6,250 from a Local Solutions Grant.
