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:

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

Booking is open for the 2018 New Forest Walking Festival

The festival runs from 13th to 28th October and more than 70 walks are available.

NEW FOREST COMMUNITY HERITAGE FAIR

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.

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

Alan Ferguson at alanfergusonpc@btinternet.com tel 023 8081 3838

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

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.

Would you like a Silent Soldier Sillouette in Minstead?

To mark the final year of the World War One centenary, 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. The Thank You movement is offering a variety of silhouettes to symbolise the communities that took part in WW1.

Action
The Parish Council would like to ask whether this is something you would like us to join in with and if so, is there a business or individual who might like to sponsor the cost (£250) or share in the cost. Please let us know at the usual address minsteadpc@gmail.com

The display of silhouettes will be throughout the UK and during the period from now until late 2018 when the nation will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, the end of WW1. The silhouettes are near life-size and can be fixed to a wall or attached to an upright post in public or private spaces. For more information about the commemoration follow the link here.

 


The Safe Car Wash App 

During Parish Council Meetings we discuss a number of initiatives and decide which could be relevant to our parishioners. One which we feel does is the new Safe Car Wash App which addresses the problem of modern slavery.

Modern slavery is hidden in plain sight on our high streets. The National Crime Agency thinks there are tens of thousands of people being exploited in the UK, forced to work long hours, for little or no pay, and under threat of violence.

Some of those people are being exploited in hand car washes, which in recent years have sprung up across the country in their thousands.

The Safe Car Wash app has been developed to allow the general public to engage with the problem, it is a new tool that will enable the largest community intelligence gathering exercise ever attempted in the United Kingdom.

Download the free app either Apple or Google onto your smartphone and then when you are using a hand car wash, simply open the app and complete a short survey about the working conditions of the car wash.


NFU – Reporting Rural Crime


 

The NFU has launched a new service for farmers and the public to give information anonymously about rural crime, in partnership with the charity Crimestoppers.

The ‘Rural Crime Reporting Line’ is part of the NFU’s ongoing work to tackle the serious issues surrounding criminal behaviour on farms and in the wider countryside.

To give information call 0800 783 0137 or visit www.ruralcrimereportingline.uk to anonymously enter information about crime relating to: industrial fly-tipping, hare coursing, machinery theft, livestock theft or other criminal activity you could help them with. Click here for further information.

 


A huge welcome to Rev David Potterton

You are invited to meet and welcome the new vicar- Rev. David Potterton at a short service at All Saints Church, Minstead on Tuesday, 21st August 5 – 5.30 pm

Do come and bring the family!

You are also welcome at his Licensing Service at St Michael’s church Lyndhurst later at 7.30pm.

     


New Council Powers to fine vehicular littering

ROAD users caught littering from vehicles across the New Forest are set to face £80 fines under new council legislation. The new regulations will resolve the problem of identifying which person committed the offence. The penalty notice will now be sent to the owner of the car, van or lorry involved regardless of who was driving or littering. This change has been backed by two senior council members, Councillor Alison Hoare and Councillor Diane Andrews, who are both part of New Forest District Council’s cabinet. A working group consisting of officers from New Forest District Council, the Forestry Commission, National Park Authority, Verderers of the New Forest and Hampshire County Council is also proposed to assess the implementation of the new penalties. We understand that footage from a dash cam will be accepted as evidence from which the NFDC will be able to issue a penalty notice. Hopefully we will all subsequently benefit from a cleaner National Park.


Garden Bonfires

It is the time of year and now the hot weather has dissipated that we are likely to return to the task of burning our garden rubbish. However, please can we ask you to be considerate about when and where you have a bonfire.

It is perfectly ok to have the occasional bonfire to get rid of reasonable amounts of garden waste but please think about the time, the location and the weather conditions to minimise any unpleasant side effects and avoid upsetting your immediate neighbourhood!

Please make sure your gardener is aware of this if you have one.

For further information please see the District Council’s website about nuisance bonfires
http://www.nfdc.gov.uk/bonfires which includes advice on having bonfires, alternative methods of garden waste disposal and the circumstance under which an abatement notice may be issued!
 


Community Resilience initiative
 
The Parish Council will leave the following item in the e-newletter for the next few weeks as we are keen to generate a good community response so we have the best set up if an incident does ever occur. Please do let Councillor Helen Bennett know (helenbennettpc@yahoo.com) if you are willing to join the response team and include your name, contact number and what you are willing to do or what equipment you can provide. For details of these please see below – Thank you.

Minstead Village Fete 2018

Despite the inclement weather the fete was a great day out and it was lovely to see so many of our local residents enjoying themselves. The tea tent is always a highlight and it didn’t disappoint having been filled with the most delicious cakes and pastries and with the back drop of live music, the setting was pretty special. Thank you to the Fete Committee, The Trusty Servant and all those who put their time in to planning and manning the other fabulous stalls. It was a resounding success. 
 
A few images to remember the day.
                    
  
NB The next big Minstead Village day out is on Saturday 1st September for the annual Flower, Fruit and Vegetable Show at the Village Hall. Definitely a visual treat.

 

The Parish council is being actively encouraged to develop a plan to enable those who live in the village to support the emergency services in the event of a major incident or critical emergency in, or close to, our village.

Campers and caravans at Hazel Hill car park, Minstead

You may have seen via the Parish Council’s Facebook page that we had a group of unauthorised campers in one of our car parks during the week. It raised the issue of who the appropriate body is to report this type of incident to. The answer is The Forestry Commission and if it’s out of office hours, there is a 24 hour line 0300 067 4600.
Unfortunately our unwelcome visitors left behind some pretty unpleasant rubbish and special thanks must go to Penny Field who single-handedly cleared it up.
  
                             


Minstead Parish Council Facebook page
 
  

Facebook – love it or loathe it, it does have a place for informing and sharing information quickly. We have our own Minstead Parish Council page which we use for exactly this reason. The page can be found by clicking here, just don’t forget to like and follow it to stay linked. The main hub of information will remain as a weekly e-newsletter and on the village website www.minstead.org.uk


Newtown near Fleetwater


 

For everyone who has been affected by the road closure at Newtown, please be assured the Parish Council has been chasing Bournemouth Water for a resolution to the problem. A leak was discovered by their engineers who then undertook the work to fix it. The same team then refilled the investigative hole and Bournemouth Water had understood it to be fixed. However locally we could see water was flowing from another lower point in the road where the tarmac had collapsed. We presume the two are connected and will continue to liaise with Bournemouth Water until the problem is completely resolved.

Please don’t forget to let Sylvia know if the idea of a coffee morning
is something you would like

                                                              

Now the shop has closed perhaps we could have a Coffee/Meeting morning  in the Church.  Keeping it simple, perhaps buying cake(s) and making tea coffee at a set time/day once a month.  Views please on this and also whether you would be available, or know someone, who will give time to try to get this off the ground.
