Sir George looked in at a table top sale held at Burghclere Down Community Centre.
"The Centre on this new development was opened by the Mayor of Test Valley two months ago, and the Trustees who run it have done a good job in promoting it and making it the focal point of Burghclere Down. They have produced a high quality magazine, telling people what happens at the Centre and what is going on on the estate as a whole."
Sir George met Colin Teasdale, Chairman, Kirsty Gray, Secretary and Ron Venables who looks after maintenance.
"One of the issues I am pursuing with Test Valley Borough Council is the three playgrounds; these have been provided by the developers and are ready to be used. But because they have not been adopted, they are still boarded up with scaffolding. I understand the frustration this is causing."
