The weather looks as if it might clear up too (fingers crossed).
There are several organised events on including a traditional party at the Social Club, Masquerade Ball/Disco at the White Hart and a Ceilidh at the Gill Nethercott Centre.
The police have also ‘Tweeted’:
We would urge all persons attending @WhitchurchHants tonight for the spontaneous gathering in the square to be respectful to local residents.
Above all, whether you are out and about, enjoying a private party, or just seeing the New Year in quietly at home, the town website team wishes everyone a safe and enjoyable evening.
Happy New Year for 2013
