Developed over the last few months under the direction of the Community & Culture Committee, the A4 spirally-bound calendar is printed on top-quality glossy paper and features photographs of Hedge End Village as it was then and as it is now.
The biggest changes are to be seen in the photographs of Northam Road as it passes through the Village Centre. Elsewhere it is surprising how little Hedge End Village has changed, with the most obvious differences being the development of modern roads and pavements.
Although this fund-raising idea has been tried successfully in other Councils around the country, including Alton in Hampshire, this is a new venture for Hedge End Town Council, who plan to use the proceeds from the sale of the calendar to subsidise community events within Hedge End.
The Hedge End Past & Present calendar costs £5 and is currently available from Hedge End Town Council Offices which are situated in the 2000 Centre, or from Hedge End Post Office.
Hedge End Town Council are likely to repeat this exercise in future years and would like to hear from anybody who has suitable photographs that could be used.
