SEASONAL ADVICE

Please take extra care driving in the Forest after the clocks go back on 29th October and try to allow a few extra minutes for journeys.  In particular November and December are the peak months for animal casualties so please encourage everyone you know to be cautious and vigilant when they get behind the wheel!

Hampshire Police have some useful seasonal advice about Halloween, Bonfire Night and other events which can be read by clicking here.

If you are planning to celebrate Guy Fawkes’ misdemeanours this year please bear in mind that animals and wildlife do not enjoy the whizz bangs as much as you!  In particular if your neighbours have horses do please warn them if you are going to have a firework party!

After the clocks go back the darker evenings may see an increase in attempted thefts particularly from outbuildings.  Click here for advice on keeping your home and property secure.

A31 HAMPSHIRE – WESTBOUND SAFETY BARRIER REPLACEMENT AND RESURFACING
Some of us have already been advised of two road work schemes along the A31 during November to replace approximately 600 metres of safety barrier along the westbound verge near Ringwood and to resurface a section of the westbound carriageway between the Ocknell and Backley enclosures.
Work is currently scheduled to start on Monday 6 November 2017 and is expected to take four weeks to complete (Monday to Friday only).

See A31 WORKS NOVEMBER 2017 for full details if you need them including traffic management and overnight diversions.
