 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.

Do you live with dementia?

Help is at hand for people living with dementia and memory loss issues.

East Hampshire District Council and Petersfield Dementia Friends are hosting a new event aimed at clearing the cloud that can hang over those with dementia sufferers and the people who look after them.

Dementia is a growing problem with more and more people being diagnosed, adding to the 1,600 people in East Hampshire with the condition. Already one in six people over the age of 80 are living with dementia and an increasing number of younger people are being diagnosed.

The event, set for Friday 24 May, will highlight the broad range of support, advice and services that are available to people with dementia.

Janie Millerchip, Senior Community Health and Wellbeing Officer at East Hampshire District Council, said: “It is possible to live well with dementia and it doesn’t mean that your normal life has to stop.

“If you take steps early and plan ahead for your future you can continue to live comfortably and happily for longer, it also makes things easier for those around you.

“Our event is perfect for anyone that has recently been diagnosed with dementia and is unsure where to go now. If you look after a family member or friend who is experiencing memory loss issues or has been diagnosed with dementia, come along and find out what help there is for you out there.

“With dementia, the sooner you respond the better it is.”

The festival will be held in Petersfield Festival Hall, Heath Road, and include stalls, experts, charities, presentations and more.

Jeff Williams, Dementia Friends Champion, said: “When you hear that dementia diagnosis it can be daunting and bewildering. You don’t know what to do or where to go for help. But there is lots of support out there for people and lots of things you can do to maintain the quality of life for someone with dementia.

“This is festival will put all that valuable help in one room and I would urge anyone touched by dementia to come along and discover it for themselves.”

Run from 10am-3.30pm the event will feature:

  • Stalls from up to 30 East Hampshire groups, charities and support agencies that work with those with dementia
  • Free legal advice from Macdonald Oates Solicitors
  • The Princess Royal Trust for Carers will explain how it can help someone with dementia
  • Hampshire Fire and rescue will show to keep safe and well and offer simple safety tips
  • Winton House will run a Memory Café – a musical activity designed for people with dementia
  • A vintage tea room for refreshments

All change at the polling station

East Hampshire residents have been warned to check their polling station before they head out to vote in the local elections this May.

Many of the district’s polling stations have switched location and residents must be sure they know where to go.

The changes have come about following a review of the ward boundaries by the Local Government Boundary Commission’s review.

It means people expecting to vote for their town, parish or district councillor on Thursday 2 May, could turn up to their usual polling station and find they are expected to vote elsewhere.

Voters can find out where there polling station is by going to or by phoning 01730 234350.

Each resident’s polling station will also be printed on their polling card, to be sent to all voters next week.

Gill Kneller, EHDC Chief Executive, said: “A lot of our polling stations have moved this time so don’t get caught out, make sure you check where your polling station is before you set off to vote.

“You can check online or give our team a call. We will also send you a polling card which will have your polling station clearly marked.

“We want as many people to turn out and vote in the local elections as possible so make sure you know where to go on the day!”

Candidates looking to be elected can now submit their nomination papers to the council. EHDC’s Elections Team will be receiving nominations for district, town or parish council elections until 4pm on Wednesday 3 April.
