Welcome to the August edition of your local Andover & North Hampshire Gazette magazine.
Schools out! Hooray for the summer holidays! Don’t forget to keep those children active, and support the many local family events around the area. If you are looking for something to do this summer, make sure you read the magazine and check out the What’s On Guide on pages 72-73.
I wonder if the hot weather we’ve been having lately will continue throughout August. Remember, to be sun safe and be aware of those who are very young, elderly or even our furry friends who cannot cope with this heat. Please do read advice online and also our article by Anton Vets as they talk about Dogs in Cars on page 38.
In this issue we have articles about the Riverside Bowl launching a Loyalty Card, Valley Leisure donate Inclusive Fitness Initiative equipment to Andover War Memorial, TVBC signs up to Andover Vision and also offers free spaces for charities and local groups on the high street for their fundraising activities and much more besides. We have lots of great Education articles including John Hanson Ladies who would very much like your support for the Cancer Research UK Shine Night Walk in September!
Our Andover People article this month is Breathe Easy Andover in association with British Lung Foundation. We talk to Keith Brown who lives with COPD as he explains more about the condition and all about this local support group, see pages 3637. If you run a local group and would like a FREE 2 page article in future editions as part of our Andover & Test Valley People please get in touch.
We are always happy to connect with local people whether it be Community or Education news, Local Events or Charity Fundraisers or whether you are local businesses looking to discuss their marketing strategy. Please do contact us to discuss your advertising needs and how your local free community magazine can help you, email Tracey@andovergazette.co.uk Please also get in touch if you have any events you would like advertised on our website or in our What’s On section in the publications.
Hope you have a fabulous summer holiday!
