RAGWORT

A further plea to everyone to pull ragwort in their area during this coming week of 17th July!

  If you can’t manage it please let us know and we’ll try and get someone over to do it for you. If you are pulling it a fork helps and you are advised to wear gloves and also a hi-vis vest if you are walking along road verges.  Please dispose of it with normal garden waste or rubbish.

MINSTEAD OIL

Orders for heating oil for delivery in July should be received by MinsteadOil by 9am this Wednesday 19th July. One order (for 1000 litres) has already been received (on 16th June) and Mike Hutton hopes this still stands!

Delivery would be expected within 10 days of 19th July but those who order will be advised as to price and delivery once this is established.

Subsequent order dates are 20th September and monthly thereafter.

FUTURE USE OF PHONE BOX

The Parish Council is supporting a proposal to develop the phone box opposite the Trusty into a Sir Arthur Conan Doyle museum and information point.  A project team has been set up locally and anyone wishing to participate should get in touch with Sylvie Dibben (Email sylvia@dibben.net).

CPR and DEFIBRILLATOR TRAINING 13TH JULY

A further reminder that there are some places still available for Minstead parishioners on a first aid course on CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and the use of our defibrillator this Thursday 13 July from 11.00 – 12.30 in the Green Room.  If you are interested please contact Councillor Helen Bennett on 023 8081 2358 or Helen.benett160@yahoo.com.

RAGWORT

Although Ragwort (stinking willie) provides a home and food source to at least 77 insect species it is also very poisonous to horses and cattle and therefore particularly unwelcome in the New Forest.

Everyone is encouraged to pull ragwort in their area (and anywhere else they think needs it!) during the week of 17th July.  If you can’t manage it please let us know and we’ll try and get someone over to do it for you. If you are pulling it a fork helps and you are advised to wear gloves and also a hi-vis vest if you are walking along road verges.  Please dispose of it with normal garden waste or rubbish.

GLEBE FIELD

The owners of the Glebe Field wish to protect it against unlawful and unwanted use or occupation, but still allow it to be used for the benefit of the village.  To this end they will be taking action to restrict vehicular access whilst still allowing access to animals and pedestrians.  There will be arrangements in place for vehicular access should it be necessary for either animal or human emergency.

MINSTEAD HISTORY GROUP 11TH JULY

The next meeting will be in the Social Club at 8pm on Tuesday 11th July when there will be an entertaining talk by Richard Reeves about “Medieval Minstead”.

NEW OFFER FROM FLOGAS

All Flogas LPG customers who are in the Minstead Parish buying group scheme (ref: code 819) with bulk tanks, not cylinders, should receive a letter with details of a new fixed rate 2 year contract offer, in the post in the next few days. This improved offer has been negotiated by a member and it means that all members will be on the same rate and the same end date of contract. The offer (see LPG BUYING SCHEME OFFER July 2017 – Minstead Buying group) is: 30.28 ppl + Vat @ 5%, fixed for two years. All tank rental is 14.25 p per day + Vat = £13 per quarter (+ 5 % Vat) This is a reduction from the previous contract offer of two years ago!

If any member does not receive this new contract offer in the next few days, please contact Christopher Tompkins (of Flogas) on 08009176112 and quote the reference: Minstead buying group 819.This offer may be available to other parishioners who are presently with other LPG suppliers depending upon contract expiry date.

RECREATIONAL MANAGEMENT STRATEGY

Some big issues are facing the New Forest in the coming years. The organisations with the main remit for both protecting the National Park and enabling people to enjoy it need your help to:

  • provide the best recreational experience for local people and our visitors
  • protect the very thing people come to see – the spectacular, yet fragile landscape which is a haven for many rare wildlife species
  • ensure limited resources are spent wisely.

The Forestry Commission, Natural England, Hampshire County Council, New Forest District Council and the Verderers have asked the National Park Authority to lead on the consultation.

If you wish to comment on the initial draft strategy you should do so by 13th August.

To find out more and to see how to join in the debate and comment visit the NPA Website

There are still a number of roadshows but unfortunately the one in Lyndhurst was on 4th July!  See RMS Poster for these and how to request a printed survey.

CONNECT TO SUPPORT HAMPSHIRE

For those who have not already found it, the County Council have a very comprehensive website Connect to Support Hampshire which provides an online information and advice guide and directory of services for adults with care and support needs who live in Hampshire.

 NEW APP FOR NEW FOREST HEALTH & LEISURE

Customers using New Forest District Council’s five health and leisure centres are benefitting from a new app.
Class bookings, swim times, centre news, and special offers are all available on the go, on the app, along with online chat, membership details, and notifications of important centre information.
The new app has many additional features and users can even social share their fitness plans with friends at the touch of a button.

PHONE BOX NOW BELONGS TO PARISH COUNCIL

BICYCLE THEFTS

You may have seen the Hampshire Alert message in which Police warn that thieves are now targeting bicycles that are attached to the back of vehicles parked in the New Forest, especially in the Forest’s campsites and car parks. The thieves are using bolt cutters to break through any chains that are being used to secure the bicycles to the racks on the backs of vehicles.
There are now bicycle locks that are alarmed and can be used to secure your bicycle to your vehicle. If you are able to keep your bicycle in your vehicle then that is another excellent way of protecting it.
In June, the New Forest Heart Neighbourhood Policing Team will be joining forces with the British Transport Cycle Crime Team and holding some bicycle safety events in the New Forest. Venues and dates to follow.

CYBER FRAUD

Action Fraud, the National Fraud and Cyber Crime Reporting Centre’s website is worth a visit to get the latest on WannaCry Scams and fraudulent on line fundraising.

ROAD CLOSURE

Advance warning has been received that Back Lane will be closed from Dundridge Cottage to a point 450 metres towards Football Green (i.e. beyond the junction with Bull Lane) sometime after 3rd July to enable BT to carry out mysterious cabling works.  We are told the work will only take place between 9.30am and 3.30pm and will not last more than 2 days.  Further details are on the PC Noticeboard and if we hear any more we’ll try and let you know.

 LYNDHURST CATHOLIC CHURCH’S 7TH ANNUAL PLANT AND CAKE SALE

It was a very successful and enjoyable sale.  We had over 200 visitors.  The weather improved and the plants were selling as fast as in the January sales.  People were so kind and generous baking cakes or growing plants for the sale.  The total raised for CAFOD’s Ethiopia project was £3,026 – a record.  The organisers wish to express a huge vote of thanks to all who supported the sale.  Plans are already afoot for next year!

And many, many thanks to everyone from Henry and Nuala Rosenvinge.

LITTER PICK 9TH MAY

Thank you so much to everyone from the village, McDonalds and Costa who contributed to this week’s litter pick along the C17. We were especially grateful to Costa’s very own Robin, who went far beyond the call of duty in his efforts in dealing with a large abandoned car seat and some unsavoury items!

Everyone’s help was very much appreciated, particularly Tessa Keeley who organised this event.

THEFTS FROM CARS ON THE INCREASE

Hampshire Police are urging all motorists who visit the New Forest to take extra care when parking their vehicles in car parks or on the side of the road. Thieves are targeting unattended vehicles and if they see anything that could be valuable inside they are breaking in and stealing it.

So please, never leave anything valuable in your vehicle, take it all with you. And don’t hide anything under the seats or in the boot because thieves often hide and watch what you are doing and then when you’ve gone for your walk they know where you’ve “hidden” everything.

PCSO 14495 Richard Williams has left some red signs at the Village Shop that you can leave on your dashboard that say that you have left nothing valuable in your car. He also has some drawstring bags that you can use to take your possessions with you rather than leaving them in the car. If you would like any of those just email him at richard.williams@hampshire.pnn.police.uk.

FLY TIPPING

Hampshire County Council is proposing to set up a dedicated organisation to work exclusively on reducing fly tipping.  This would focus on working with Police, Borough, District and City Councils and others to improve reporting and intelligence and increase prosecutions, as well as promoting ways the public can help.  It is increasingly likely that anything found that has been fly tipped can be traced back to an individual or organisation who are then likely to be prosecuted and fined.  Hampshire has also opened up Household Waste Recycling Centres to small and medium sized enterprises for the first time.  This provides a legal and cost effective place for businesses to recycle and dispose of waste.

For further information on this initiative visit the HCC website.
