    hello sarah
    We live just outside Portsmouth and travel to Verwood mondays and thursdays. 3 players also travel from portsmouth to Verwood. Verwood is ambitious 3rd section. Hyde is Championship and also have players traveling from Portsmouth area as do Otterbourne (1st) and Ocean(2nd). There is a new band called Spinnaker Brass (I think) and Gosport silver (4th section). Not forgetting Woodfalls Concert (1st) as I believe their conductor also lives this way and they are a good band.
    If you have a car there is Denmead which is 3rd and very friendly. Hope this helps and if you need any more details you can send me a private message and I`ll send you some phone numbers XX
