LOCAL history: Brookvale residents interested in local history will very much enjoy ‘Basingstoke and the Brookvale Heritage Area’, a charming and evocative video recently uploaded to YouTube by Chris Smallbone, containing a fantastic range of historic photos of local scenes. Relax and enjoy!

ENROLMENT evening: Local college, BCoT, has a part-time enrolment evening coming up on Tuesday, July 1, from 5pm to 8pm.

There’s no need to book – simply turn up on the night for the event, where visitors can find out about forthcoming courses plus there’s a 10 per cent early bird discount for anyone enrolling and paying in full in the same month.

Don’t worry if you can’t make it this time though, as a second evening takes place on Tuesday, September 2, again at the same time.

FANCY a bit of (local) colour in your life? If so, look out for the paint pot and brush logos in the Top of The Town shop windows, as the Splash of Colour Art Trail displays works by local artists in shops and businesses.
