Winchester Latest Issue

Welcome to the December edition of the Winchester Gazette.

It’s nearly Christmas and everyone is getting into the festive spirit. What have you got planned this year? Who’s turn is it to host on Christmas Day, is that how you organise the festive season to manage to enjoy time with all your family & friends – I think most people do! I wonder what will be this year’s Christmas No 1? for a bit of fun in our Christmas feature we’ve added a Christmas Music Quiz on pages 24-25, why not see what Christmas hits you can remember with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie. Good Luck!

If you are looking for local events to provide a dose of Christmas cheer then do check out our What’s On section (pages 36-37) and after you’ve enjoyed a skating at the atmospheric Winchester Christmas Ice Rink why not head over to Basingstoke to try all the snowsports Snozone have to offer! (page 27) . In this issue we cover a new mural to celebrate Sophie’s Place 10th Anniversary at Winchester Hospital, Citizens Advice Winchester District benefits from Simplyhealth donation with many more stories alongside all our regular features our readers enjoy every month!

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.

We’d like to wish all our customers and readers around the Winchester area a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all here at MLG Magazines
