Will you find the town centre treasure tags?

Shoppers are being encouraged to keep their eyes peeled for 100 lost treasure tags dotted around Andover town centre this weekend.

Anyone who finds one of the festive tags on Saturday 14 or Sunday 15 December can pop to the drop-in shop at 4 Bridge Street to claim their prize and take a sneak peek at the town centre redevelopment proposals while they’re there.

Andover masterplan project lead at Test Valley Borough Council, Paul Jackson, said: “We’ll be hiding the tags all around the town, so if you’re lucky enough to spot one then please take it along to the town centre redevelopment drop-in shop on Bridge Street and exchange it for a treat.”

Representatives from HemingwayDesign, NEW masterplanning and Test Valley Borough Council will be on hand to showcase the initial town centre redevelopment ideas influenced by feedback from nearly 3,000 respondents who took part in the survey earlier this year.

The team will be available to answer questions about the once in a generation opportunity to transform the town and discuss the common themes raised so far.

The shop will be open from 10am to 5pm from Wednesday December 11 until Saturday December 14 and 10am to 3pm on Sunday December 15.
