Somerford ARC is a registered charity, set up by local residents of Somerford Estate (the Trustees), with the purpose of opening and running a much needed Community Centre.
The Christchurch and District Concert Band are a community based, Not for Profit Organisation, promoting the enjoyment of music through learning, performing and audience involvement.
They are the Town Band of Christchurch and were presented a Meritorious Award from Christchurch Borough Council for their services and involvement in the community. Founded just 7 years ago, our vision is one of musical unity – regardless of race, ability, gender, or financial standing; music should be available to all.
Music is good for the soul and beneficial in many ways: The performance of music creates a bond of friendship which is so important, with many people these days finding themselves alone or lonely; proven to improve hand-eye co-ordination, team spirited, builds confidence, lifts depression, keeps the mind active and gives you an overall feel-good factor. Our band motto is “Music Triumphs over Adversity “and nothing could be more appropriate. The Band are also supporters of the Bournemouth War Memorial Homes and the Not Forgotten Association.
The band meet on a Tuesday evening at the Somerford ARC Community Centre BH23 3EH from 19.15 to 21.45. If you are interested in joining the band or you would like to organise an event, please contact us.

Somerford ARC is here to provide a community facility for the purposes of recreation, education and enjoyment for the residents of Somerford and the surrounding area's. We want to further benefit the residents of Somerford by providing opportunities for them to enhance their lives. We provide health and fitness classes as well as promoting mental well being. Our IT Suite, which was kindly donated by Sovereign & updated with a grant from the National Lottery Community fund, allows the community to develop their computer skills and have opportunities to do free classes such as Job Club. We try and provide services here for free or at a low cost to allow everyone to access these facilities.
