Mayor Invites Residents to A Day Trip to RomseyMayor of Test Valley, Councillor Iris Andersen, is inviting residents to join her on a free coach trip to Romsey on Tuesday, 12 April. The trip will include a visit to some of the town’s attractions, including the beautiful new war horse statue in the War Memorial Park and the historic King John’s House and Heritage Museum.

There are just 14 spaces available on the trip, so why not book yourself or a loved one onto an enjoyable and informal day out this spring? The coach will depart from George Yard car park in Andover at 10am before making its way to Romsey’s War Memorial Park. Guests will be able to admire the war horse and take a walk around the park before they are taken into town. After some spare time for shopping and lunch, the group will meet at King John’s House where they will be treated to a tour and talk about the history of the site. The coach is scheduled to arrive back in Andover at 4pm.

Councillor Iris Andersen said: “Romsey is a beautiful town with many different things to see and do. I thought it would be a nice idea to give residents the opportunity to visit the town and spend some time with friends. I hope that my guests will also enjoy meeting new people and exploring all that Romsey has to offer.”

Although the trip is free, guests are asked to provide their own lunch. They can either bring lunch with them or visit one of the eateries in Romsey. For more information and to reserve a place, please contact Sharon Goodridge, Mayor’s Assistant, on 01264 368002. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
