Winchester Latest Issue

Welcome to the September edition of the Winchester Gazette.

It’s September, the kids have done back to school and all the shops are starting to change stock. Autumn ranges with little hints of Christmas are about too! Summer has been incredibly hot and everyone is comparing it to the summer of 1976 which also recorded really high temperatures. With the change of season the gardens will hopefully be recovering from the lack of water and the cooler weather may be better to sit out and enjoy. If you fancy a walk don’t forget to check out pages 16-17 for our monthly walk.

This month we cover Naomi House & Jacksplace’s First Environmentally Friendly Virtual Balloon Race, Winchester’s favourite heritage festival, City Council to provide extra support to help residents with Universal Credit and much more besides along with all our regular features. In our Education News we have an article St Swithun’s Prep School netball team plays at iconic Olympic venue during London Live.

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 (www.mlggazettes. or in our What’s On section in the publication.

Enjoy September!
