Newcomers to Alton are amazed by how much goes on here. Just have a browse of the Chamber of Trade and Commerce’s summary of upcoming events.
And don’t forget how much local traders and the High Street need our support in these difficult times.
Try to buy here whenever you can and enjoy the town’s friendly coffee shops, pubs and restaurants a little more.
It is always a pleasant experience.
If you don’t use it you lose it
