Andover Vision - the future: The business event planned for 15th October at The Lights, Andover has been cancelled. The Vision Board remain committed to working to ensure a brighter future for the town. The board will now review the way forward including how to progress one of the Vision's key strategies namely the promotion of Andover as an engineering town.
70% of the local population live and work in Andover, so supporting local enterprise is important to the Vision. The town already hosts several large employers including Simply Health, Stannah, Twinings and the Army Headquarters, and is also home to a wide range of dynamic small to medium size businesses, as well as some exciting entrepreneurial activity such as Basepoint.
Strong 'business clusters' including engineering, food and drink, warehousing and distribution, and logistics have been identified. We want to build on these; encouraging new skills into the town to support business growth and create quality employment opportunities.Find out more
We’ve loads of old dogs learning new tricks and a ton of young pups doing things for the very first time. Education is for everyone in Andover. We’re working with our schools and colleges to help everyone feel just that little bit more clever, confident and ready to take on the world.
We don’t want people to sit around twiddling their thumbs. It’s not good for their thumbs and it’s not good for our community. We’re a community of do-ers and we’re helping people to do and to organise things all the time – from big parties for everyone to the little street jumble sale for neighbours and the odd curious passer-by.Find out more
