On February 27, 2008, the Archbishop of Canterbury visited Andover and went to "Askalot", a resource centre on the King Arthur's Way Estate (see website February 27 2008).

Two years after it was launched, Askalot had a second birthday, attended by Cllr Sandra Hawke and the local MP.

At this party, Askalot launched a UK On-line Centre, and Christine Alexander - EveryoneOnline Officer - was present to help people with their computing needs. Also at Askalot on the day were the quit smoking team from the NHS, the bike-tagging team, police community support offices, and representatives from Testway Housing. "This is a great resource for the King Arthur's Way Estate, and it was great to celebrate their second birthday."

Among those at the party were Chris Davies, the Church and Community Development Officer; Yana Williams, one of the volunteers; Petra Gooden-Husband, who works in the shop during the day; Clare Hobbs, Hampshire Youth Arts Officer; Steve Benson, Chief Executive of Testway Housing and Christine Alexander, the EveryoneOnline Officer. Askalot now has 237 members, and a large number of others who pop in at some point. Sir George complimented all those who had contributed to the success of the scheme, and pledged himself to help in any way he could in the future.
