Andover & N Hampshire Latest Issue

Welcome to the April edition of your local Andover & North Hampshire Gazette magazine.



Well, it will soon be Easter… April has come around quickly hasn’t it?

Let’s hope Easter weekend is bright, sunny and warm for us all and especially those who have planned a weekend away to take advantage of Good Friday and Easter Monday Bank Holidays. So to help, our Service with a Smile article gives 10 tips which could make family road trips that little bit easier.

We have all the usual features and as it’s spring we thought more top tips for Spring Cleaning in our House & Garden, as Easter weekend is often time for DIY, painting and decorating plus generally giving the house a spruce up! If you have a problem that needs professional help and advice, do turn to pages 34-37 for local services that may be able to provide assistance.

In this month’s issue we cover a local artist who is training to set a record to row around the UK to raise money for charity, £750 Business Incentive Grant for Animal Mad, Andover Baptist Church Pre-School Playgroup opens its doors at The Phoenix Centre and The Andover Family Festival, a date for your diary (1st July). Plus we talk to Age UK Mid Hampshire about the services they provide to the elderly in the Hampshire area.  Find out what help and advice you can get by turning to pages 38-39.
