Petersfield Area Community Trust is a charity committed to fostering a sense of community in Petersfield and the surrounding areas. Over the years PACT has been involved in many local issues, campaigning for a dedicated community space and representing resident’s views on various developments.
Each Summer we run Party on the Piece on St Matthew’s Piece, a wonderful community event open to all featuring live entertainment, children’s games and activities and food trucks. We also run regular events throughout the year aimed at helping bring the community together over shared interests.
In January 2020 we were delighted to announce we will be partnering with Romsey Mill to run a new Community Centre that will be built as part of the ‘Ironworks’ housing scheme on the former Mill Road Depot site. As many local residents will be aware this has been something PACT has been working towards for some years and will know how important it is to us that we have been able to secure this space as a community centre for Petersfield and surrounding areas.
We are excited to share with you over the coming months the plans for the centre and hopefully get loads of local people involved in shaping it and helping raise the necessary funds to support this project. We are working with Romsey Mill to develop our partnership.
You are more than welcome to join us. Membership is open to anyone living in or around Petersfield, definitely including Romsey, or anyone who has ties to the local community.

Due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic all our community events are currently cancelled including Party on the Piece 2020, which was scheduled for 6th September. We are really sad not to be able to connect with the community through these face to face events but will continue to look at ways we can support local residents and foster a sense of community through these difficult times. We are excited to see such an active and comprehensive response from the local community so far, For more information on the Petersfield Mutual Aid Response Group please check our dedicated Covid-19 page.
If you are inspired to get more involved in Petersfield why not join us? PACT is a membership charity open to all local residents. Or just join our mailing list, it’s the same form. You can also contact us if you have any questions or ideas. We’re always looking for more volunteers to continue to develop Petersfield and the surrounding areas into an active and thrieving local community we can all enjoy being a part of.
