Every year those who are elected to serve the people of Whitchurch, together with a number of other organisations meet at the Annual Town Assembly to provide feedback on their activities, as well as plans for the future.
Town Mayor Cllr Barry Jackman, in one of his last roles holding the chain of office opened the proceedings which were held in the Parish Hall. Next year it will be the turn of Cllr Jackie Day to oversee the event.
The presentations showed the wealth of activity that takes place in the town, much of it behind the scenes and which rarely makes the headlines.
The range of topics stretched from WADS looking for young vampires to Christmas hampers for the elderly; from support for young people to hanging pictures around the town. Housing behind Winchester Road, numbers of speeding vehicles, the Carnival, the 20mph Whitchurch Minute, as well as Fireworks, Bells at the Jubilee and even paper plates hanging on fishing wire made the evening one full of interest.
