ROMSEY town centre was brought alive with the sound of music thanks to a group of ukulele players.

Romsey Ukelele Group came together to busk in aid of Red Nose Day.

During two 45-minute sets they played a selection of covers and classics from the ’60s and ’70s.

The 100-strong group has donated thousands of pounds to worthwhile causes in the past and consider themselves the friendliest group in the South.

According to player Roy Blake, they managed to raised £10,000 in aid of local charities last year which was donated to Romsey Opportunity Group, Romsey Young Carers, Romsey Open Gate Stroke Club and Jane Scarth House.

Band leader, Nicky Booth said: “We want to put a smile on everyone’s faces.”

The group are in popular demand having played at nursing homes, weddings and Romsey Beggars Fair.

The group meets every Wednesday between 7pm and 9pm at The Comrades Club in Romsey.
