The East Hampshire Community Rail Partnership provides a link between the railway industry and local communities.

The Partnership aims to focus on the 4 rail stations  which are central to the East Hampshire area of the SDNP. With their prime locations (Liphook, Liss, Petersfield, Rowlands Castle) the stations are being developed as key gateways to encourage more travel to the Park by train and to enable improved onward travel exploration by foot, cycle or bus.

You can follow the Partnership with Facebook and by Twitter rail.

Family business takes over Petersfield Market


A family business that has worked in the town since 1930 will restore local pride in Petersfield Market after being chosen to run it.
Well-known local fruit and vegetable company Bryant Bros are to take over the management of the town’s Wednesday and Saturday markets from East Hampshire District Council.
Following an extensive tender process EHDC agreed that the company would be best placed to handle the day-to-day affairs of the market and improve it over time.
“It is fantastic that such a well-established family business has won the contract to run Petersfield Market.
“The Wednesday and Saturday markets clearly require a new approach and direction. We were very impressed with Bryant’s bid which explained how they propose to deliver the improvements the market needs.
“We are sure they will increase the standard and diversity of the service, enhance it as an experience for shoppers and restore local pride in the market.”
The new management agreement will see pitch fees frozen for at least a year, and the extensive use of social media to promote and develop the market. Also, 25 per cent of any profit generated through the management of the market will be donated to local charities and community groups.
Bryant Bros said: “We believe that the market is at the heart of Petersfield and its community.  We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to work with EHDC and the other market traders to develop a bustling, vibrant and successful community market for the residents of Petersfield.”
I feel confident that this is a good call and I’m delighted that Bryant Bros have won the contract.
