Thursday 9 May 2013


Welcome to the new website of the Abbotts Barton Community Group.
We are a group of residents from the Abbotts Barton area of Winchester, United Kingdom.

The purpose of the group is to act as representatives of the community in order to achieve improvements for the benefit of the community.

Our aim is to give the community a voice so that we can address local issues with the council. Apart from that we would like to help people to meet and get to know each other better by promoting community events like the BIG LUNCH on 2 June 2013. This one and other events can be found on the EVENTS tab of this site.

(Existing local groups such as the Abbotts Barton Community Development Action Group and the Save The Parks group are focusing on the new homes development proposals in Abbotts Barton. The Abbotts Community Group recognises that there may be some overlap as issues or more specific proposals emerge. We can decide on what we want to do about those as they arise.)
