John and Sarah Mills, who run Parsonage Farm in Upton, held their spring market, promoting local food and craft stalls. In addition, they raised funds for the Countess of Brecknock Hospice in Andover. "This is becoming a very popular event, with people happy to pay a £2 entrance fee in order to help the local hospice. It was good to see many small traders at the farm, selling their wares and the event has become even more child friendly this year, with a range of attractions for families."
Parsonage Farm is a family run business, selling quality meat from animals raised on site, using natural and environmentally farming practices.
Sir George was subsequently told by John Mills that £700 had been raised for the hospice. "This is a fantastic result, and I know that the money will be well spent by the Countess of Brecknock Hospice".
