8TH ANNUAL PLANT AND CAKE SALE AT DUNELM

Please accept a huge vote of thanks for the generous support you gave to the Plant Sale last Saturday.  So many of you baked cakes, grew plants and donated items of bric-à-brac or bottles for the tombola stall.  We can only apologise for the traffic problems on the day, the queues at the gate and at the refreshment table, but not for the chat and laughter that was heard at the event.  All proceeds are to go to CAFOD’s work in Ethiopia and the current total is in excess of £3,600 which is another record for the event. Plans are already afoot for the ninth sale which will be next May.

With our good wishes and grateful thanks.

Henry and Nuala Rosenvinge.

TICKS AND LYME DISEASE

  • Ticks carrying disease are found across the UK in both town and countryside and in many parts of the New Forest.
  • Ticks are most active from March to October, but they can also be active on mild winter days.
  • Not all ticks are infected – infection rates in any place varies from zero to about 15%.
  • Ticks can be very small and can go unnoticed.
  • You will not feel a tick attach to you, so check your skin and that of children.

For further information on what to look for, how to reduce the risk from ticks and what to do if you think you have been bitten have a look at this NFDC Lyme Disease leaflet or visit the Lime Disease Action website

Please note that the APCM (Annual Parochial Church Meeting) will be held on April 25th. Every year, the Parochial Church Council invites new members to stand for election as 3 stand down at the end of their term. This is to allow for “new blood” and fresh ideas. The PCC is a committee of parishioners who work with the incumbent to keep the church running and there are 3 main meetings annually. Each person has something unique to bring; if you could offer your time and talents, please speak to the Churchwardens or PCC Secretary. Nominations for election to the PCC to Alison McGhee, PCC Secretary at minsteadpcc@gmail.com.

REPORT A ROAD PROBLEM

Although the Parish Council does its utmost to report our road problems to Hampshire County Council, the more individual people who report them the more likely they are to get fixed, though of course in these times of austerity there are no guarantees!

You can report a pothole, a tree or hedge problem, a flooding or drainage issue, a paving problem, lighting and sign issues, salt bins problems and a range of others on line by visiting:

https://www.hants.gov.uk/transport/roadmaintenance/roadproblems

If reporting a pothole do try and take a photograph and if you do we suggest you put something next to it, like a bunch of keys, to give an indication of its size and depth.

NON DWELLING BURLARY

This remains one of the most common crimes in our area.

There was a recent incident in Lyndhurst Road when some items were taken from a stable.

For advice on protecting your home and outbuildings have a look at the Hampshire Police website

CHANGES TO THE WAY PUBLIC NOTICES ARE PUBLISHED BY NFDC

New Forest District Council is changing the way it places statutory adverts, notably those regarding planning and related applications and road closures.  From April this year these will not be placed as at present but rather in a weekly free paper (The Hampshire Independent) distributed throughout the District via a number of outlets such as petrol stations, shops and supermarkets.   The awarded supplier is currently looking at setting up more distribution points likely to include our offices and willing Town and Parish Council facilities and the AT&T (Lymington Times) still expects to publish planning notices as a “news item”, but not as a paid “advertisement”.

This newspaper is also available on line

Click Changes to publishing NFDC public notices for further information about this change.
