Test Valley Latest Issue

Welcome to the April edition of your local Test Valley Gazette magazine.



April is here… with a long Easter weekend to look forward to, have you got anything planned? Some people go away while others tackle DIY around the home.
Springtime also means that we tend to start cleaning and to help we’ve got an article on pages 42-44 with tips to make some tasks a little easier. If you are decluttering, do remember others and use recycle sites or charity bins as someone may need something you are throwing away; you never know!

There are also many good causes and community groups around who need help, so do think about them when you are tidying your home this spring. In this month’s issue, we have articles about a local butcher winning a Gold Award in the 2017 Great Hampshire Sausage and Pie Competition, Andover Family Festival update, more information about the Test Valley Business Awards plus much more besides. We also 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 46-47.

Are you a charity, community group or a local person who has an inspirational story of fundraising or story about helping the community? If so, do 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, so please do email us tracey@testvalleygazette.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.

Enjoy Easter and all those chocolate treats!
