150 Years down the Alresford Avenue

 

Alresford Rotary joined the Town Trust and the Bishop of Winchester to celebrate the fact that it was precisely 150 years ago that the Bishop of Winchester gave the Avenue to the Town. There were strict terms attached to the gift. The land was to be used for the recreation of the inhabitants of the town and for no other purpose whatever. The Avenue should remain forever exactly as the Reverend Charles Richard, Bishop of Winchester had known it in 1869.

The event was a showcase of Alresford’s voluntary organisations such as The Giles Group, The Pigs, Friends of the Arle, Alresford Mens Shed, Churches Together and the Voluntary Care Group,  Also a display portable bell tower and ringing, vintage vehicles and country crafts. The tea and cake stand was provided by the WI.
