Test Valley Latest Issue

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

Well, we’ve really have had some hot days in June and I wonder if this will continue into July so that families can enjoy the summer holidays to the fullest. I guess we’ll have to wait and see with our fingers crossed. Children will be on school holidays soon, and to help you get them out and about a lady from Andover Hampshire Rocks explains the new craze to sweep the UK. If you want to get involved this summer, check out page 36 to read all about it and we hope the little ones enjoy taking part.

In this issue we cover a donation by the Freemason’s to Countess of Brecknock, Romsey Mayor makes a pledge, King’s Somborne Village Hall awarded TVBC Community Grant, the Test Valley Business Awards article and much more besides. It’s the Andover Carnival this month which needs your support to help Icknield School purchase a standing frame, read more on page 11, and Andover Festival of Motoring too (page 46). Exciting news as Music on the Test is back in aid of Countess of Brecknock Hospice, so if you fancy going along check out our What’s On section for more information (pages 58-60).

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 your summer!
