Residents are being encouraged to share their vision for Andover at Vigo Park Charity Fun Day on Saturday 4 June, to be in with a chance of winning some great prizes.
Andover Vision volunteers will be at the event to invite residents to take part in a host of great activities and to ask for their ideas about how to make the town an even better place to live.
Councillor Phil North, who has been coordinating the Andover Vision project, said: “This will be a great opportunity for residents to share their hopes and ideas for the town and to find about more about what was discussed at the Andover Vision Community Workshop on 9 April. We’ll have lots of great activities for people to take part in and some brilliant prizes up for grabs, so if you’re planning to go to the fun day then make sure you pop over to see us.
“I have said before that the new Andover Vision, like the previous vision for the town, is not one imposed by Test Valley Borough Council. Our role is instead to bring together the wishes, aspirations and dreams of the people of Andover, and community events provide the perfect chance to find out more about what people would like to see in the town.”
The event follows the Andover Vision Community Workshop held in April, which saw 70 people from local community groups and organisations come together to share their ideas to enhance the town. The feedback from the charity fun day and community workshop will be used to develop an Andover Vision action plan.
The new Andover Vision document and action plan is expected to be launched in April 2017.
