BAND AND BAND STANDERS
I notice that the Returned Services' Association are about to form a complete band of all classes of instuments. It is very nice to know, at the same time it is well overdue. Now, where are the public going to hear this band? Have we to stand at the corner of the street as we usually do? I would like to suggest that the City Council should make an enclosure round the band stand in Albert Park and provide a few hundred folding chairs so that old Diggers and elderly people could sit for an hour or so and enjoy the music that is going to be provided for our entertainment. How many people would begrudge giving a silver coin to have a comfortable seat on a Sunday afternoon or evening instead of having to stand up all the time or sit on the damn grass? A programme could also be provided. A place could be made where these seats can be easily packed away during the winter months.
