Recent Parish Council meetings

A date for your diary

The Parish Council are planning to do some temporary repairs to the car park outside the Hall to keep it serviceable through the winter in advance, we hope, of some major more permanent repairs next summer.  ​We plan to redistribute the gravel, fill in and compact the potholes.  If you can help please keep some time free on Saturday 28 October and have your shovel ready.  All help much appreciated.


The Flood and Water Management Team have sent the following information and attached poster:

Unfortunately it is fast becoming the time of year when we need to think about the state of Hampshire's land drainage network. As the rain begins in earnest and leaves begin to fall, all riparian owners (those who have watercourses on or bordering their properties) across Hampshire, and beyond, should be looking at the state of their drainage ditches, culverts and other watercourses to ensure the clear transference of rain water and a reduced risk of localised flooding.

Please find a poster detailing what responsibilities riparian owners have and guidance on how to undertake this maintenance to reduce flooding from surface water after rain event.  adobe icon Watercourse poster September 2017 [356kb]
