Our District Councillor, Diane Andrews, is moving from her current role as Chairman of Planning to a new role on the District Council as a member of the Council’s Cabinet. Diane’s role will cover ‘Community Affairs’, with a brief ranging across areas such as Community Engagement, Community Grants and Support, Customer Services, Elections and Electoral Registration, Community Safety Partnership, CCTV, Careline and Communications. The Cabinet is the key body within the Council for the administration of the Council’s activities and will, in its new format, have eight Councillor members, up from the original 6.

MINSTEAD MAIL

The latest edition of Minstead Mail has been distributed by hand to all households in the Parish.  It is regretted that the entry about the Christingle Service is incorrect.  This should, of course, have been called the Five Candles Service which for over 50 years has marked the beginning of Advent in Minstead.  The  service was brought to Minstead from his previous parish by Rev. Clifford Rham, who was Rector of All Saints’ from 1963 – 1970 and it is now led by Gill Gibbons who has been involved since 1967 and makes it “as near to the original as we can get it”.  We also apologise for misspelling Gill’s name.

See THE FIVE CANDLES SERVICE IN MINSTEAD for further details of the history and meaning of the Minstead Five Candles Service.

A LOAD OF RUBBISH

Everyone whose rubbish collection is on a Monday should note that for tomorrow 18th December the collection will be as normal; but that their next collection will be on Saturday 30th December; and that there will not be one on Monday 1st January!

If your collection is on Tuesday 19th December then the next one will be on Tuesday 2nd January.

For further information about collection dates for refuse and glass and for information about Christmas tree drop-offs from 2nd January visit

http://newforest.gov.uk/christmasrefuse

Bearing in mind that household waste can really increase at Christmas, from packaging and gift wrapping, to glass bottles, chocolate tins, and Christmas trees. New Forest District Council has provided advice on how to dispose of some of your extra household waste and what can be recycled.

Click Christmas Recycling in the New Forest 2017 to read this important information.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR OIL TSAR

“Each year I set out the dates throughout the following year when I will place Oil orders for those who have requested them. The purpose of this notification is so you are not caught out and miss a date when you really should have ordered oil!

All dates are Wednesdays and orders must be with me at minsteadoil@gmail.com before 9am on the relevant date.

January 10th; February 14th; March 14th; May 16th; July 18th; September 19th; October 17th; November 14th and December 5th.

In order to remove any doubt, I will NOT be ordering in April, June or August.

If you would like to see the historical list of fuel prices with Minstead Oil, please let me know. The usual caveat applies ‘Past performance is no guide to future performance’ and fuel prices will go up as well as down!!

Happy Christmas all.

Mike”

BEAT REPORT

See Beat Report October 2017 for our area, Northern New Forest Heart.  It contains information about local crime incidents and useful advice about Home Security which is well worth reading.

Everyone is encouraged to sign up to Hampshire Alert if you have not already done so.  This is a free service offered by the Police which means that members can be sent relevant local alerts by text or email. These updates include incidents such as major road closures and warnings about the latest crime trends. It also allows members to reply to alerts, meaning that it is an easy way to share information or opinions with the police. It only takes a minute to sign up and you can get your family and friends to do so by following this link https://www.hampshirealert.co.uk/.

The next Beat Surgery when you can meet our local Police will be at the Village Shop from 10am on Saturday 18th November.

 A31 HAMPSHIRE – WESTBOUND SAFETY BARRIER REPLACEMENT AND RESURFACING
With regard to the two road work schemes starting on Monday (see A31 WORKS NOVEMBER 2017) the timings of the A31 closures starting have been changed.

 As there will be multiple teams working within the closure (resurfacing work, safety barrier replacement, asset surveys, litter picking), the team will be using a valid Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) which will allow the road to be closed from 9pm instead of 10pm.  This will allow a longer working window.  The times for the closures are currently displayed on black-on-yellow signs alongside the A31. If you have any questions, or if you’d like you know about our work please contact us on 0300 123 5000 or email info@highwaysengland.co.uk

MINSTEAD OIL

Please place your order for oil by email to minsteadoil@gmail.com by 9am on Wednesday 15th November. Mike will advise you of the company, price and delivery by e-mail when he has placed the order. Standard expected delivery is about 10 working days but this may vary with each company.

December orders must be placed by 9am on Wednesday 6th December and January orders by 10th January 2018.

ALL SAINTS CHURCH

See All Saints Notices 5th November 2017 for this week.

An Armistice Day commemorative ceremony will be held at the War Memorial at 10.45am on Saturday 11th November.

This year’s Remembrance Service in the Church will start at 10.50am on Sunday November 12th and will be followed by a wreath laying at the War Memorial on the Village Green.

FOOTWAY OPPOSITE THE OLD COURT HOUSE
Thanks are due to a member of the public who cleared the surface of the footpath of an accumulation of leaves. This will help keep the path in good condition. (The surface was renewed in 2015 by Hampshire County Council.)

ARMISTICE DAY SATURDAY 11TH NOVEMBER

Armistice Day, also known as Remembrance Day, is the day which marked the end of the First World War and is now the occasion on which we can remember the fallen of both World Wars and since. At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month the two minute silence is observed throughout the country and this year the Lyndhurst Branch of the Royal British Legion will hold a ceremony of Remembrance including a two minute silence at the Minstead War Memorial on the Green.

If you can spare just half an hour to remember and reflect please join us there at 10.50a.m a week next Saturday.

 HAMSHIRE POLICE TARGET POACHING

Hampshire Police are stepping up operations to target poaching, hare coursing and other rural crimes.
These damaging illegal activities increase during late autumn following the cutting of crops and as the hours of darkness grow.
For further details: https://www.hampshire.police.uk/news/general/police-target-poaching-and-hare-coursing/

BAD RABBIT

This is not a rural crimal (!) but a new Cyber Attack affecting Eastern Europe.

It is a Ransomware attack and will encrypt files and demand a ransom in order to get them decrypted.  So far there have been no reported attacks in the UK, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be targeted!

Bad Rabbit infects systems by popping up on computers and saying that Flash needs updating, or that you need to install Flash.  Flash is a piece of software that is installed on many computers.  It allows media such as videos and animation etc on websites to run.  From time to time updates are needed but you shouldn’t see any pop ups about it.  If you find that you get this pop up then you are strongly advised not click to install.

For further information and advice have a look at the web and see this BBC article.
