A few reminders if you are a postal voter:

  1. You must sign, and write your Date of Birth on the Postal Vote Statement (PVS). The signature must be the one with which you applied for a postal vote, and it needs your Date of Birth, NOT today’s date
  2. Then mark X’s on the Ballot Paper and seal the Ballot Paper into Envelope A.
  3. Finally put Envelope A and your completed PVS into envelope B, seal that and post it.

Community Fibre Broadband Scheme
We are hard at work collecting monies for this Scheme from those on the CFBS list, and from those generous and community-minded enough to make voluntary contributions to help bring it to fruition.
If you have already made a payment “Thank you very much”.
If not, would you consider the advantages that this Ultrafast connection could bring you, your family and the wider community and contact us either by emailing minsteadchairman@gmail.com or by using the online form at http://ultrafast.minstead.org.uk/ to discuss your potential participation?
So far we have raised only 40% of the £106,698 required to make this connection possible.


The Quiz Night on 13th April was attended by over 90 members of the Minstead community and raised nearly £900 pounds for its funding of a Community Shop in Minstead.  The winners were the “Fleetwood Fools”, the runners-up “The Olorenshaws”.

Very many thanks to everyone who supported the occasion.
