The June edition of our Beat Report can be read by clicking here.

Always a good read, of particular interest this month are the latest crime reports, some helpful advice on bike security and a speedwatch report for Mill Lane.

Our PCSO, Richard Williams is hoping to run a Crime Prevention Club in the summer holidays for anyone aged between 10 and 15. The idea is that once a week for a couple of hours the club would go to various venues in the New Forest and pass on crime prevention advice that will stop people becoming victims of crime. You will also have a lot of fun too. Places will be limited so if you know someone who would like to join Richard then send him an email as soon as possible! (richard.williams@hampshire.pnn.police.uk).

Please note that our next Beat surgery will be at 10am on Saturday 28th July at the Village Shop.


A second joint public consultation has been launched on how the management of recreation in the New Forest can be improved.  It lasts for 8 weeks (18 June – 12 August) and builds on the results of last year’s consultation asking for feedback on 25 draft proposed actions and ways in which these could be delivered.

The proposals have been designed to update the actions in the existing Recreation Management Strategy and:

  • Protect the spectacular yet fragile wildlife-rich landscape that people come to see
  • Manage recreation for local people and visitors
  • Use limited resources wisely

Last year over 1500 individuals and 50 organisations responded – and your input to the current consultation would be welcome.

The news release about the consultation can be found here, additional information (several linked webpages) here and the online survey itself here.


Click here to read New Forest District Council latest guidance on what items can be put into our clear sacks and recycled.

These are: Plastic Bottles; Paper; Card; Cans;Tins; and Aerosols.

If you put anything else into your clear sacks they have to be filtered out and sent elsewhere which is an expensive process.

Address:      Canterton Manor Farm, Brook, Lyndhurst, SO43 7HD
