May I take this opportunity to thank the editors and reporters of our local paper the Advertiser, for posting the link to my web page at the end of the article they wrote about my achievement in accomplishing a full photographic inventory of all firms, shops, businesses and pop up shops throughout the town. 

Many readers online, and when purchasing the newspaper in print form, perhaps forget that the Advertiser is in itself a business too.

I won't forget, that their graciousness in doing this, afforded those featured, name checks and awareness of their locations in our town.

This of course extends from Enham Arch right through the centre and and out to Picket Piece, Weyhill Road, the different industrial estates, and up to the other end where Chalkhill Blue and The Travelodge is...

Many people have expressed their surprise at what we do have in our town, perhaps this is because they are looking for things only in the centre?

Andover is perhaps more than the sum of its parts. To conclude thank you to all who work for the Andover Advertiser for supporting us all.
