VILLAGE FETE

Very many thanks to all who helped and contributed!

Sunday turned out fine with a gentle breeze and all the gazebos and tents remained in place!  The tea tent sold everything; all the tombola prizes were won; most of the coconuts were removed from their perches; a few rats were batted; lots of books were sold; and everyone was entertained with delightful live music by Alastair Chisholm and his group.

Although we are still waiting for details we made about £990 which is a brilliant total to be shared between the Church Tower Fund and Community Shop.

The fabulous bake off winners were as follows:

Adult Cupcake Category: Julia Hobbie

Best Vegan Cake: Sally Mollett

Best Overall Cake: Sally Mollett

The My Minstead Showstopper Winner: Michelle Haworth

  

Yum!

POP-UP CAFES OVER THE BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND

If you are able to help please let Annabel Bruxner-Randall know at pdbruxner_randall@hotmail.com.

If you can’t manage it please let us know and we’ll try and get someone over to do it for you.

the Polly and Oz book stall (with everything ranging from the scholarly to the light-hearted for all ages – always worth a good browse!),

And, of course, a Fantastic Tea Tent run by our Church helpers!

Please do anything you can to support us by getting involved if you are able (see below) or by just coming along on the day.  It’s going to be a great village community event!

All gazebos welcome!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE TEA TENT!

For the tea tent we need volunteers to cover the Teas, Refreshments and Rest Area by:

  1. Making/providing refreshments (last year it was agreed that it would be sensible to provide more savoury refreshments as well as cakes)

and/or

  1. Helping during the Fete, on a rota basis, with the provision of Teas and looking after the Rest Area. It worked quite well last year with people dipping in and out of both jobs and generally being versatile.

We look forward to hearing from you, hope that you can assist and would welcome the involvement from any new residents.

Please be kind enough to let any of us know if you are able to help:

Sylvia Dibben         Sylvia@dibben.net                     02380 812967

Karen Flack            karenajflack@hotmail.com        02380 813181.

LPG BUYING SCHEME OFFER FROM FLOGAS

Please  click HERE to see the offer from Flogas to Minstead Parish and local Areas which may be of interest to those who use LPG.

RAGWORT

As posted on Facebook recently, it’s that time of year again!  As last year there does not seem to be much ragwort around but as we all know it is still extremely harmful to animals if eaten so we encourage everybody to pull up/dig up any you find in your neighbourhood and dispose of it by burning or in your black bag.

Do be careful to wear protective gloves and hi-vis jackets if you are out on the road.

This photo of ragwort was taken in South Island New Zealand where it is believed to have been introduced by some well meaning Victorians either by accident or even on purpose – so it travels well and can get anywhere!

AN IMPORTANT DATE FOR YOUR DIARY

Don’t forget the Village Fete which will be held on the Village Green on Saturday 10th August!

Please keep the date free and support it as best you can….all proceeds will be shared between the Church Tower Fund and the Community Shop Project.

For all offers of help, either for setting up, running a stall or taking down please contact Steve Cattell on 07732306406 email steve_cattell@hotmail.com.

If you have any books for the book stall please drop them off with Polly and Oz at Curtle Cottage.

A31 MINSTEAD CATTLE GRID IMPROVEMENTS

For the avoidance of any confusion, Kier Highways’ work to bring the current cattle grid located off the A31 up to current specification is now expected to start on Monday 8th July (not 1st July) and will take place over 5 days. 

AND YET MORE ROADWORKS – A31 CLOSURE

Kier Highways will be resurfacing a section of the A31 westbound carriageway on the approach to the Picket Post junction, to ensure the network remains in a safe condition. The works are scheduled to start on Monday 8th July 2019 and should be completed by Wednesday 24th July 2019. For the safety of the workforce and users (otherwise known as customers) they will be closing the A31 westbound carriageway from junction 2 of the M27 to Poulner Hill (Ringwood) overnight between 9pm and 6am (Monday to Friday only). During the closures a signed diversion will be in place from junction 2, north on the A36 to Salisbury, then south on the A338 to join the A31 at the Ringwood Interchange. To minimise disruption to users, they will also be carrying out a second scheme within the road closure to renew road markings on the A31 westbound carriageway.

In addition to the westbound closures, Kier Highways will also be closing the A31 eastbound carriageway from the A338 Ringwood Interchange to junction 2 of the M27 to allow for road markings to be renewed on the A31 eastbound carriageway. These works are scheduled to take place overnight on Monday 1st and Tuesday 2nd July 2019. Access will be maintained for emergency services vehicles on blue light calls; and for those residents or businesses located within the closure extents. All drivers will also need to adhere to the site speed limits of 10mph and 5mph when passing plant and/or our workforce.

HAVE YOU SEEN CLOVER?

We think she’s still missing!

HAMPSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL CONSULTATION – BALANCING THE BUDGET

HCC is asking for residents’ and stakeholders’ views on ways to balance its budget in response to growing demands on council services and continuing pressures on local government funding.

By April 2021 the County Council will be facing an anticipated budget shortfall of £80 million.  With less money available and growing demand for council services decisions will need to be made about what it can and cannot provide in the future.

The County Council would like to hear your views on the following options for balancing its budget as well as any alternatives you may wish to propose:

  • introducing and increasing charges for some services
  • encouraging central Government to make legislative changes
  • generating additional income
  • continuing to use the County Council’s reserves prudently
  • reducing and changing services
  • increasing Council Tax
  • changing local government arrangements in Hampshire

To find out more and complete the consultation on line visit

https://www.hants.gov.uk/balancingthebudget

You can also request an information pack and response form in Braille, audio or large print by emailing insight@hants.gov.uk or ringing 0300 555 1375.
