A CIVIC marketing manager in the Winchester district will be much missed, a meeting heard.

Heidi Isa, market towns development officer, has been instrumental in helping to promote towns such as Alresford, Bishop's Waltham, Wickham and Denmead since 2013.

The Council meeting was told that she has moved to a new role in Southampton.

Cllr Rob Humby, portfolio holder for business partnerships, said she would be "greatly missed. She has worked tirelessly over the last four years. She bought communities and businesses together. I would like to put at on record and congratulate her in her new role."

Ms Isa is the new marketing director at Go! Southampton.

"We thought she would stay two years and she stayed for four. All businesses will miss her," added Cllr Humby.
