D-DAY 75 AT SOLENT [email protected]

So pleased to meet Neil Porter today who has for the last 20 years been the organiser of Abingdon Air Show. He was able to make many helpful suggestions to Councillor Jon Butts and me which will undoubtedly be reflected in an amazing event on 8th and 9th June. Tickets will be available from Monday from Ferneham Hall, online and the Solent Airport Control Tower.

It was a real pleasure as Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Recreation and Heritage to join local Councillors Zilliah Brooks, Kirsty North and Andrew Gibson to reopen Andover Library following a £300,000 refurbishment. The library is Hampshire’s 8th busiest with over 180,000 visitors annually. The register office will be moving in and the children’s library is enlarged.

Inspired to meet the Alex Wardle Foundation

Inspired to meet the Alex Wardle Foundation  in conjunction with CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) a screening day. Many young people booked in to be screened during the day which is a fantastic achievement. The charity is seeking support for the valuable work that they do in our community which includes helping fund defibrillators at public buildings including Sarisbury Community Centre.
