Community development at Picket Twenty

Jenny Brain is the Community Worker for the Picket Twenty development. The post is 30 hours per week and paid for by the developers as part of the planning conditions.

The key objectives of the Community Worker are as follows:

  • Provide information to residents about the development, local facilities, services and community activities in and around Andover.
  • Set up and support community groups and clubs.
  • Organise activities.
  • Establish links with neighbouring communities.
    Promote the Community Travel Plan and establish the travel needs of the community to confirm the infrastructure in the area is effective.

Jenny works from the Community Centre at Picket Twenty, which is located at Picket Twenty Way, near Pilgrims Cross School.  The Community Centre has information about the development, local facilities, services and community activities in and around Andover.  Jenny is available to help or provide information at the following times:

Wednesday 3.30 - 5.30 pm Drop-in advice and assistance for residents

There is a regular community newsletter that gives updates on Jenny's work, information on community events and activities and reports on progress with the overall development. The latest newsletter can be found at the foot of the page, as can a link to previous issues.

If you would like to speak with Jenny about getting more involved in the community, about ideas for activities or services that should be provided, or if you have a problem with which you need some assistance, you can contact her as follows:
