Following the much improved and enjoyed Christmas in Whitchurch celebrations when local shopkeepers and businesses got together to run the event, there have been some welcomed developments amongst the traders of the town.
Much of this has come from the hard work by Pauline Choppen from the Bridal Shop, but others are to be commended too and there is a growing feelgood factor about working together.

Plans are being discussed
A recent well-attended meeting in H’s Coffee Shop discussed plans for the year, including decorated windows for the Diamond Jubilee, possible flower arrangements around the town and ideas for next Christmas. Making a town centre look colourful attracts more people shop locally, whether residents or visitors, and all this is good for business for the whole town.

Advertisement feature
One initiative has been a Whitchurch advertisement feature which appears in today’s Andover Advertiser – so pop out and buy a copy!

    Judging by the success of Christmas in Whitchurch 2011 we can look forward to some really good events.

    We are really pleased with todays paper, and lovely of Annie from the new plumbing shop to congratulate us on our tenth year on her advert. We were so pleased so many businesses wanted to join us on the two-page spread and hopefully this will become a regular feature several times over the year with editorial on different businesses each time.
    It’s lovely to have the support from other businesses and any suggestions for future ideas are always welcomed.

    Fantastic, putting Whitchurch fair and square on the map. To all our local traders we wish all the best in this our Queen’s Golden Jubilee year.

    We are looking forward to all the many celebrations planned and will do all we can in council to make them a success.

    Barry and Sandra
