 The Steeleford Supercar Show taking place on the 23rd June 2019 will be a showcase of some of the finest exotic cars southern England has to offer. Ranging from super to hyper, classic to contemporary, British to Italian to German, this won’t be a day to miss.

Its not all about cars either… We have handpicked a selection of delicious street food outlets for you to feast upon whilst you enjoy the surroundings of Stansted Park. If up market street food isn't quite right for you in a rural area, picnics in the park are very welcome and make a worthy substitute. 
There's more! Public guests are free to explore the the extensive grounds and maze, garden centre and kids play area .
Visitors of the show can also purchase half price tickets to access to Stansted House, which is steeped in history. In 1983, the 10th Earl of Bessborough gave Stansted Park, the Arboretum, his family home and its contents to the public. The state rooms are furnished as though the 10th Earl was still at the home, giving visitors a real sense of the bygone era, the extensive servant quarters below stairs are brought to life by the very knowledgeable and friendly stewards that will guide you through the vibrant history of Stansted Park.
If you would like to visit the SteeleFord Supercar Show then please head to the Tickets page at
Supercar owners are invited to enjoy the house balcony overlooking the site as well as the owners marquee with welcome refreshments and seating to enjoy luxury lunch hampers if ordered.
If you would like to display your supercar at the Steeleford Supercar Show please use the Contact Us page at Your supercar entry fee will be donated to charity.
Of course, please contact us if you have any queries.

A new way to contact your council

Residents will soon be able to contact East Hampshire District Council easier than ever before thanks to an online customer system.

The system will allow people to check Council Tax payments, report issues and find out what they need, when they need it.

Residents can already set up their own My EHDC accounts which can be used to access various services, such as reporting abandoned vehicles.

This year the system will be enhanced to widen the scope of services residents can access 24/7.

During 2019, Council Tax payers will be able to access their secure account on-line, check what they owe, see when the next payment is due or set up a Direct Debit.

Customers claiming Housing Benefit or Council Tax Support will be able to view their claim and check payments.

Landlords whose tenants receive Housing Benefit will be able to check payment information.

Later this year, customers who wish to buy a service or report a problem with services such as garden waste or refuse will be able to do this through their My EHDC account.

Customers will also be able to report problems with their refuse collection via a 24/7 telephone line.

Cllr Nick Drew, EHDC Portfolio Holder for Governance and Legal, said: “By investing in technology, we have the potential to move more than 60 per cent of our telephone calls to a more convenient and flexible way for customers to contact us.

“By encouraging people to use other channels, we can spend more time with our more vulnerable residents who need a greater level of support.”

Customers can create a MY EHDC account right now at

RAPP+ launches after school clubs

East Hampshire District Council’s Rural Areas Play Project (RAPP) is expanding with the launch of new after school sessions.

The Rural Areas Play Project promotes interactive and fun children’s activities around the district. Operating across the majority of holidays and half-terms, the service has proved its success with local children and young people for more than a decade.

And now the service is launching RAPP+, providing two new after school sessions in the district.

On Mondays RAPP+ will be running the Food Academy, funded by Radian, at Café 1759, in Whitehill & Bordon, teaching children culinary skills.

Held during term time, this is an after-school club that is foody fun for all! Young people aged eight and older can learn how to cook a meal from scratch and develop nutritional knowledge in a fun and informative way. And they will also have the added bonus of enjoying some physical activity while their dinner is cooking!

The second opportunity is a RAPP+ Out of School Club which will run at Selborne C of E Primary School on Wednesdays and Thursdays, after school, during term time. The RAPP+ team will be offering support to working parents, allowing that bit of extra time at the end of the day for the children to enjoy craft and sporting activities while being supported and entertained.

Lisa Clements, EHDC Play Development Officer, said: “We are very pleased to be working in two new partnerships with Selborne Primary School and Radian to launch RAPP+ and our first ever RAPP+ Out of School Club.

“RAPP has been a very successful service for 13 years and now RAPP+ will also give residents of East Hampshire after school activities during term time.”

RAPP+ can also offer bespoke quotes for events, parties, weddings and more. For more information please contact Lisa Clements, Play Development Officer, on 01730 234384 or
