Community Groups to get Free Hire of the High Street

Charities and local community groups are now able to hire either the High Street or the Time Ring in Andover High Street free ofcharge, following a decision taken by Test Valley Borough Council's Cabinet.

The request for the cancellation of the concessionary charge was made by Councillor Iris Andersen. Iris is the champion of so many voluntary causes in Andover – so when she brought forward a request on their behalf, we listened. We wanted to make a significant commitment to charities and community groups in Andover enabling them to save money and help publicise their cause. Although this means the Council will have to provide staffing to facilitate this hire and lose some revenue, we believe the benefits to the community outweigh these issues – and will encourage more vibrancy in our High Street.

Charities and local community groups can benefit from two days free of charge per year. After this they would pay the standard concessionary charge. This offer is in addition to the 'Charity pitch' on the Thursday and Saturday Markets which charities can use free of charge up to 4 times a year.
