A further reminder to place your oil orders for February by 9am this Wednesday 17th February – expected delivery would be up to 10 working days later. Please quote the number of Litres required and say ‘Fill up Please’ if that is the case. Orders should be sent by e-mail to MinsteadOil@gmail.com before 9am – late orders are rarely accepted! The next Monthly order will be placed on March 16th and it may not be delivered before Easter. Subsequent orders will be placed bi-monthly until September.

MINSTEAD ALL SAINTS
Most Minstead dog owners will know the New Forest Dog Walking Code which local people have agreed as the code of practice for dog walking throughout the New Forest National Park. It is supported by all the organisations on the New Forest Dogs Forum. Further information can be read here.
The code is summarised on credit card size slips which could be useful for visitors and any dog walker you meet who is not familiar with the special needs of the New Forest. These are available along with car stickers in the Shop.
The February edition of the New Forest National Park’s eNews (“Park Life”) can be read, hopefully, by clicking here!
There are no extant planning applications for Minstead this week.
