Local News | Andover Village Shops SummitThe Conservative Candidate for North West Hants, Kit Malthouse, is holding a village shops summit on March 19th in Hurstbourne Priors. Kit is keen to put together an action plan for these particularly important businesses which he can promote to government of all levels and to the Post Office.

Kit Malthouse said, “The local shop is often the beating heart of the village in North West Hants. What they need to thrive and grow is not always the same as what other businesses need. They have specific requirements which should be a political priority. To discuss these issues and to pull together an action plan that can be put to government of all levels, national, county and borough, as well as to the Post Office, I am holding a summit of village shop owners and operators so that I can hear first hand what they have to say, and what they need.”

Any shop owner, manager or committee member is welcome to attend and you can contact Kit at kit@kitmalthouse.com if you would like to do so. If you can’t attend please feel free to email in your views and suggestions.
