Autumn Makeover for Anna FieldsResidents in the Anna Fields area of Andover celebrated the start of autumn with a spectacular Sparkle Day on 23 September.

From sweeping roads and paths, to pruning shrubs and collecting almost three tonnes of waste, Test Valley Borough Council’s Sparkle Day team ensured the area was looking spick and span. They also removed graffiti, cleaned road signs and provided recycling information to almost 100 properties.
