Winchester Latest Issue

Welcome to the April edition of the Winchester Gazette.

Winchester.CoverAprilApril is here and many will be looking forward to the long weekend for Easter – hopefully the weather won’t let us down with so many people opting to go away for the weekend.

For everyone else, time off work to rest at home, a time to see family to gift chocolate treats and an Easter Sunday dinner to look forward to. There’s lots of things to do here in Winchester this month but especially around Easter, with Animal Magic at Sparsholt College and a Where’s the Easter bunny? Hunt around Winchester but you must find the clues! See our What’s On section for more details (pages 36-37), it all sounds like a lot of fun for the children or grandchildren and definitely time to make some great family memories.

In this issue, we talk to Combat Stress one of the Mayor’s chosen charities and they tell us all about the services and treatment programmes they offer to help veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD). Find out more about this charity and the worth while work they do by turning to pages 21-22 and if you could help support them in any way please do make contact with them. You can also donate to the Mayor’s chosen charities by visiting the website cited on the article, every little bit helps. In our Community news we have articles from the Mariposa Trust, Hampshire & IOW Air Ambulance appeals for volunteers, Winchester City Council wins Gold Award for homelessness services and we talk Winchester Fashion Week plus we have Education news too.

We are always happy to connect with local people and like to hear all about your local stories, so please do email us using  We print schools/college press releases for free, so this is a great opportunity to tell us about the unique ways you use to encourage pupils to learn.  Please also provide any details of local  events you would like advertised on our website or in our What’s On section in the publication

Enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend!
