Mayor of Test Valley, Councillor Iris Andersen, has officially opened a set of brand new display boards in the Chantry Centre, to make it easier for local charities, businesses and community groups to advertise events.
The boards, which can be found by the entrance to the bus station near Waitrose, have been introduced as a result of feedback through the Andover Summit. The boards can hold around 80 A4 posters at a time and will be managed by Test Valley Community Services (TVCS).
Councillor Chris Lynn, who arranged for the boards to be installed, said: “Through the Andover Summit, many local groups expressed how difficult it was to know where best to advertise events locally. To help address this, we have installed the boards to enable groups and organisations to advertise events in a place where they know their poster will benefit from lots of passing pedestrian traffic.”
“I think the display boards look really good and I would like to say a big thank you to Test Valley Community Services for agreeing to manage them. I hope they will be well used by the local community.”
Local groups and organisations wishing to display a poster free of charge are asked to contact TVCS on 01264 362 600, or send their poster to Test Valley Community Services at Shopmobility, Andover Bus Station, West Street, SP10 1QP. TVCS can only accept hard copy posters.
