Welcome to the September edition of your local Test Valley Gazette magazine.
September – and haven’t we had a wonderfully hot summer? Although some will be thinking the heatwave lasted far too long! Especially all the budding gardeners out there who have been struggling to keep plants alive in this heat. It will soon be Autumn and as we are British we’ll probably be moaning about the rainy weather come October! It’s only 115 days until Christmas (from 1st Sept) so we’ve included a Christmas Quiz on pages 41/42. Yes, we know it’s early but so many people now are getting organised way before December and the shops are stocking seasonal items earlier and earlier, don’t you think?! We are just following suit…!
In this issue we cover Wessex Heartbeat urging people to ‘get on their bikes’ for charity, Little green fingers at Longparish Little School, Ben’s 3 peak challenge for Andover Young Carers, An invitation for players to join Romsey & District Badminton Club, TVBA Guest speaker announced and much more besides.
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 email@example.com. 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.
Have a great September!
