LIVING IN THE NEW FOREST

If you have recently purchased a property in the New Forest you are probably aware of the special responsibilities that go with living in such a beautiful place. In case you are not sure there is a useful leaflet for newcomers (and indeed for all who live in the Forest) which provides advice and guidance for owners of properties adjoining the Open Forest. To read this visit:

http://www.verderers.org.uk/guidance_property_owners.pdf

 It has been produced by the New Forest Higher Level Stewardship Scheme and is supported by the Verderers, the Forestry Commission, the National Park Authority and Natural England.

The leaflet covers a range of subjects including how to protect your garden, keeping the New Forest character, boundary and ditch maintenance, hedges, verges and the importance of avoiding excessive outside lighting.

To find out more about the Higher Level Stewardship Scheme and the many projects it has completed or which are still ongoing visit:

We are collecting material for the next Minstead Mail and would be grateful for any contributions including details of local events over the next 3-4 months and any items of interest to Minstead residents.

As all will know Minstead Mail has been distributed for several years in hard copy to every household but we are considering whether it is worth the associated cost and effort in addition to the weekly eNewsletter and the Village website.

Please let us know now what you and your neighbours think, especially if you know someone who does not receive email.

BELL RINGERS REMEMBERED

Church bells were rung in celebration when Armistice was declared in 1918, after having been restricted during the four-year war. 1,400 bell ringers died in WW1. In remembering their sacrifice, the aim has been to recruit 1,400 new ringers this year.  Minstead has been able to make its contribution with 3 new recruits.

Hopefully they will be ringing on 11th November this year, as Big Ben strikes to mark the centenary of Armistice Day.

A note of thanks to those who live in ear-shot of the bells as the learning process proceeds. If you can’t beat them, why not join them? Anyone interested should contact Polly Osborne.

KAREN FRAMPTON

Local artist Karen Frampton is opening the doors of her art studio on 20th and 21st October 10am-5pm. She will be displaying her latest original artwork, many of local scenes. Everyone is welcome to visit and enjoy a cuppa with the artist at Woodside Cottage, Minstead SO43 7GB.

 ROAD CLOSURE

A further reminder that the following roads will be closed as shown below from 8am this Monday 8th October, hopefully for a period of no more than 2 weeks:

  • C151 Lyndhurst Road Minstead between its junction with Church Lane and its junction with Newtown Road.
  • U139 (Road to Football Green) between its junction with Bull Lane and its junction with C151 Lyndhurst Road adjacent The Trusty Servant.

HISTORY GROUP TUESDAY 9TH OCTOBER SOCIAL CLUB AT 8PM

This month’s speaker will be Hadrian Cook. Hadrian published a new book about the Forest last year and you can find out more about it by clicking here.

For some while now Hadrian has lived in Salisbury and has studied the Water Meadows there.  A family connection and his book about the Forest led Isabel Yeo to invite him to speak.

Do come to listen; he is a good speaker.

SILENT SILHOUETTE

In case you have not seen him yet, Classic Tommy is now on the Village Green by the War Memorial

Again, many thanks to all those who contributed.  Your generosity means there is enough money left over to make a very worthwhile donation to the Royal British Legion.

BEAT REPORT AND BEAT SURGERY

Click here to read the Beat Report for September 2018.  It contains much useful information including advice on securing out-buildings such as sheds and garages which are more susceptible to theft as the evenings draw in.

Please note that the next Beat Surgery will be at 11am in the Trusty Servant on Saturday 20th October.  This is a good opportunity to meet our local Police on an informal basis.

 ALL SAINTS CHURCH

For services and events at All Saints click here.

  • Click here to visit the New Forest Parishes website for news and information.
  • Click here to find out more about the Harvest Festival Concert of Gregorian Chant and secular music for organ and flute at 7pm on Saturday 13th Tickets £8.50 from the Trusty Servant.
  • The Harvest Festival Service will be held the following day at 10.30am on Sunday 14th October!

MINSTEAD PLAYERS

Minstead Players are a very willing group, dedicated to learning their lines and throwing themselves about the stage as the script decrees but this year their collective lowers limbs have been somewhat troublesome. Two suffering from chronic sciatica, another with half a knee replacement not to mention a smattering of generally dodgy knees.  Consequently we have decided to postpone the scheduled November production of “Don’t Get your Vicars in a Twist” until January.  Performances will be at the Minstead Village Hall on Friday the 18th and Saturday 19th when crutches will be discarded, physiotherapy will be a memory and hopefully no one will be limping anymore – as I said we are all very willing!

LITTERPICK

The next litterpick is planned for Tuesday 16th October. We will meet at 10am in Andrews Mare Car Park. As usual, we will cover both sides of the road between the A31 and the Newtown Crossroads. McDonalds will provide the litter picking sticks and refuse bags. Anyone is welcome but if you have any queries please email tessakeeley1@gmail.com

HEDGES AND DITCHES REMINDER

This is a reminder to all who own hedges and ditches along our roads that they are responsible for cutting them back and keeping them clear.

If hedges or ditches are badly neglected then the matter will be referred to Hampshire County Council who may ultimately carry out the necessary work and will pass the bill to the landowner. Even if ditches are outside the hedge their clearance is still the responsibility of the owner of the boundary.

DOG FOULING

It is important for all dog owners to take responsibility for cleaning up after their animal as not only is it unpleasant to look at and even more unpleasant to step in, it can pose a health risk, particularly to children. For example, Toxocariasis is a rare infection caused by roundworms in the digestive tracts of dogs. It can cause headaches, eye problems and fever in humans if they come into contact with it.

Please clear up after your dog to keep the New Forest a pleasant place for everybody and encourage others to do likewise. You can use any plastic bag to pick up your dog’s waste and if you can’t find a dog waste bin it’s all right to put it in one of the litter bins. Dog waste from your garden can be double-bagged and placed in your black refuse sack.

If you spot a dog fouling problem, you can report it to Customer Services on 023 8028 5000 or report it online.

New Forest District Council can fine those who fail to pick up after their dog £50 so please ensure you have bags or poop scoops with you every time you walk your dog.

NEW FOREST WALKING FESTIVAL

MINSTEAD COMMUNITY SHOP

178 people responded to the recent survey of whom 126 said they would use a Community Shop regularly, 47 occasionally and 5 not at all.  There were lots of interesting suggestions and encouraging offers of help in various ways.  We believe this represents more than sufficient support for a community Steering Group to be set up to consider the various options and establish a way ahead and we are contacting all those who volunteered.  It is hoped that such a Group will form up in the next few weeks and that once it is established there will be further consultation with the village Community.

Our new Priest-in-Charge, The Reverend David Potterton was licensed to the Benefice of the Parishes of Lyndhurst and Emery Down and Minstead on August 21st in a joyful service taken by The Right Reverend Jonathan Frost, Bishop of Southampton.  St Michael and All Angels’ church in Lyndhurst was packed and its bells rang out.  Ahead of the licensing service, Revd. David took part in short services at the two other parish churches in the benefice: All Saints’ Church, Minstead and Christ Church, Emery Down. The Bishop of Southampton led these services, which included a joyous African chant, and presented Revd. Potterton with the keys to each church.

ALL SAINTS’ CHURCH MINSTEAD TOWER FUND APPEAL

SILENT SILHOUETTE

As mentioned in an earlier Newsletter the Royal British Legion is inviting the public to take part in a movement to say ‘Thank You’ to the First World War generation who served, sacrificed, rebuilt and changed the nation. In support of the ‘Thank You’ movement the RBL is offering for donation a variety of silhouettes to symbolise the communities that took part in WW1 and who shaped the nation as we know it today. The silhouettes are near life-size and can be fixed to a wall or attached to an upright post in public or private spaces. The Parish Council is asking for donations to pay for a Classic Tommy  to be situated by the War Memorial on the Village Green.

If you would like to make a donation, however small, please contact

Helen Bennett at helenbennettpc@yahoo.com tel 023 8081 2358 or

Subsequent Oil orders will be at 4 week intervals until the December one on the 5th to get delivery before Christmas.

BROADBAND UPDATE

Following the Annual Parish Meeting on March 21st the Parish Council has been very frustrated by the lack of progress and information from Openreach.  During August we escalated the matter within Openreach, Hampshire County Council, and via our MP.  This has resulted in some updated information.

On work that Openreach are already committed to, providing fibre broadband to some further areas of the village they say ‘Work on the local distribution fibres is currently not started and isn’t due to start until late 2018/early 2019 with the network being live mid 2019……………The local surveying/planning is due to complete within the next 2-3 months and at that point we will get a clear line of sight to a completion date’.

For our proposed Community Fibre Partnership, Openreach now expect to have a proposed solution and cost by the end of September.  This is for work to provide fibre broadband to many areas of the village that would not otherwise be covered.  This will allow us to access Hampshire County Council funding, but also requires some community contribution.  Until the scheme is agreed and funded we will not have possible installation dates for this.

Please note that all previous dates supplied by Openreach have slipped!

VILLAGE FETE

Many thanks to all who helped with this year’s Village Fete.  Despite the weather there was a good turnout and we raised a fantastic £1215.50 to be shared between the Church and SSAFA.

The Divisional Secretary of SSAFA has written as follows:

“Thank you all in Minstead for considering SSAFA New Forest Division as the recipient of a share of your profits from your fete.  £608.25 is an amazingly generous sum to come our way and I can assure you it will be used locally and wisely to help veterans in the New Forest.  Many thanks to you all for your hard work and generosity”

The breakdown of “takings” was as follows:

Books                    76.90

Refreshments        389 50

Dogs Trust            37.60

Tombola                 126.00

Coconut Shy etc     38.00

Cake weight          7.50

Card Lady              5.00

MINSTEAD PARISH COUNCIL ‘COMMUNITY RESILIENCE INITIATIVE’

Very many thanks to all those who have offered help.  We shall be taking this initiative forward and provide an update in due course.

M27 BRIDGE REPLACEMENT

You may already be aware that the M27 is undergoing major improvements.  The motorway will be closed between junctions 3 and 4 over three separate weekends in the next year with the first starting on Friday 28/09/18 at 2200 until the early hours of Sunday for the demolition and replacement of the west bridge.

This will mean lengthy tailbacks into the west and may well cause heavy congestion in the eastern part of the district as drivers attempt to avoid the lengthy diversions by driving through local roads.

 WIGGLE CYCLE EVENT

The next Wiggle sportive event is taking place in the New Forest on the 15th and 16th of September. It doesn’t come through Minstead but might cause problems travelling round.  Further details of the route and other information can be found by clicking here.

 MINSTEAD COMMUNITY SHOP

Many thanks to everyone who has completed the survey so far, either on line or on paper!

There has been a reasonable response but we really do need quite a lot more by 31st July in order to judge if there is sufficient support from the Village, or not, to set up a project for a Community Shop.

We do not need your detailed ideas at this stage – if the project proceeds that will come later!  We really just need to get a feel of how many people in the Village would support a Community Shop, an idea of what they want from it and ways in which they might help.

Please do your best, it takes barely 5 minutes to complete and anyone can take part.  The survey is not limited to one per household, just one per person!

It is the views of the Minstead community that matter most and we’d rather know at this stage what you really think (providing it is polite!).

To take part please either:

complete the form and take it to the Trusty Servant where there is a special box for completed surveys.  If you are unable to do this please contact our Clerk, Polly Osborne, on 023 8081 2375 and we will arrange for it to be collected.  We can also try and get another form to you if you have mislaid yours!

OR

view and complete the survey on line by clicking

Minstead Community Shop Project

(It can also be accessed via the Village Website and Facebook!)

ALL SAINTS CHURCH

The PCC has encountered a glitch in its Google account and is unable to send out the notices directly.  It is hoped this will be sorted shortly.

Meanwhile see All Saints Notices 22nd July 2018 and Benefice Notices 22nd July 2018 to find out about services and to read the latest church notices.  You can also follow All Saints Church on Facebook and visit the Benefice website for more information.

VILLAGE FETE SATURDAY 11th AUGUST

As previously announced, this year’s Fete will be on the Green starting at approximately midday and finishing around 4.30pm.  Proceeds will go to the Church and the Tower Fund appeal and SSAFA. If you are free to help set up that would be a great help!

Please let us know at minsteadpc@gmail.com if you can lend a hand or just turn up on the day at about 9am – the more the merrier!

The Tea area will be co-ordinated by the Church and we would welcome any support you can give by way of donations of Savoury or Cake produce.

In addition we would be very pleased to hear from you if you are able to give a little time to the running of the Tea Tent between the hours of 11.30am and 4.30pm

Could you please let us know if you are able to provide food and/or your preferred times to assist on the day.

VERDERERS ASK YOU NOT TO PUT WATER OUT FOR ANIMALS

The Verderers’ Court has issued a notice urging people NOT to put out water in buckets or other receptacles for the animals.  Despite the best of intentions this is counter-productive.  There are plenty of places in the Forest where animals can get water including large water troughs which are mains fed and the animals know where they are.

Click here for the full notice.

VILLAGE SHOP

Along with many in the Village the Parish Council much regrets and is deeply saddened by the closing of the Village Shop which has been in existence in one form or another for over 200 years.  We are very grateful for the number of suggestions and offers of advice and help we have received and are actively exploring possible options for the future in order to conduct a village wide survey in the near future.  This survey will ask for your thoughts, ideas and suggestions for the future and we hope to promulgate it in as many ways as possible to reach all households in the village.

THE HEATWAVE CONTINUES

At the risk of stating the obvious the current heatwave represents a hazard to the old, babies, young people and those with certain medical conditions.  There is a lot of useful advice on coping in hot weather that can be found on the NHS website and also on the Met Office website.

And perhaps even more obviously, the Fire Severity Index for the New Forest is now assessed as Very High by the Met Office, one less than the maximum rating. This is an assessment of how severe a fire could become if one were to start rather than the risk of one occurring.  The NPA website contains a lot of sensible advice on the prevention of accidental fires which can be read by clicking here.

If you spot a wildfire call 999 immediately, try to give your exact location, including any landmarks and if possible meet the fire engine to give directions.

RAGWORT

There is not a lot of ragwort around in the Village this year (other than on the A31 central reservation!) so we suggest everyone clears what they can find this week in their own immediate neighbourhood and disposes of it with their normal rubbish collection.  If you collect a large amount please contact Councillor Richard Taylor who may be able to help.

We recommend you wear gloves and a hi-vis vest if you are on the road and you may find a small fork helpful in this dry weather.

If anyone can spare a bit of time helping Councillors clear the far side of the Glebe land (behind Congleton Close) that would be much appreciated.

LENGTHSMAN

For several years our Lengthsman, Stephen Short has devoted many hours in all weathers around the village clearing our footpaths to keep them passable, cleaning signs, repairing the bus shelter, maintaining street furniture, helping to resolve flooding issues, clearing ditches and a host of other small but important jobs to help keep our village functioning and looking tidy.  We are sure everyone will join us in thanking him for all he does.

MINSTEAD LOCAL HISTORY GROUP

8pm in the Social Club Tuesday 10th July

A further reminder that this month Carole Standeven will lead a talk about Minstead Players.  She asks that as many people as possible can attend to help identify from photographs some of the people involved over the years.

All welcome!

MINSTEAD STUDY CENTRE 50TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!

Free entrance!

Minstead Study Centre would like to invite you to its Big Birthday Celebration on Saturday July 14th 2018 from 12.30 to 4.30pm. The Centre has been running for 50 golden years inspiring all its thousands of visitors to ‘tread more lightly on the Earth’.
There will be lots of fun activities to enjoy: Hand to Mouth Puppet Show, music and dancing, wonderful food and much, much more.
We are aiming to put together a collage of memories and photos of all the past school visits to display at the event. We would like you to send us your fond memories/photos or bring them along and add them to the memory wall.
We all look forward to catching up with as many Villagers as possible on the day!

BEAT REPORT

Many apologies to the Speedwatch Team for stating in last week’s eNewsletter that their recent activities had been in Bull Lane when in fact they were, of course, busy in Mill Lane!  This was a slip of the editor’s pen or whatever is the keyboard equivalent.

Many thanks to them for all they do!
