Farewell to the Garrison Festival
Whitehill Town Council in partnership with Bordon Garrison have been organising the Farewell to the Garrison Festival. After over a year of work, the event is all set and is taking place this Saturday 27 June. After being based in the town for over 100 years, the Army are relocating to Lyneham in Wiltshire. The Farewell to the Garrison Festival is to mark this milestone in the history of Whitehill & Bordon. We hope that the local community as well as those from farther afield will come along to enjoy the day and say 'thank you and farewell' to Bordon Garrison.

Welcome to Whitehill Town Council Website
The Parish of Whitehill is made up of the communities of Whitehill and Bordon. It lies in the North east corner of East Hampshire and is situated on the A325 midway between Farnham in the north and Petersfield in the south and is close to Guildford, Portsmouth and Basingstoke and is a gateway to the South Downs National Park.
The Council attained Parish status in 1928, by Act of Parliament, and prior to that came within the Parishes of Headley and Selborne. In 1991 Whitehill Parish Council changed its name to Whitehill Town Council.
It is a long narrow Parish covering some eight square miles. The 2011 census gave the population figure as 13,259 and 5,162 households.
Whitehill & Bordon benefits from a unique and attractive landscape setting of heathlands, river corridors and woodlands. It is the only location in the British Isles to support all twelve native species of reptiles and amphibians.
The Town grew in a piecemeal fashion around the military facility of the Bordon Garrison. The Bordon Garrison is leaving the Town in the autumn of 2015, releasing considerable training land and barracks. Consequently plans are being put in place to provide 4,000 new homes, employment space for 5,500 new jobs, a new town centre, community facilities, and public transport and up to 200 hectares of green spaces.
The Town is divided into 5 wards (Chase, Deadwater, Hogmoor, Pinewood & Walldown) served by three Councillors in each ward. Elections take place every 4 years.
