As previously announced, the local monthly Beat Report for our area has been replaced by Hampshire Alert which enables you to participate in the exchange of information with Hampshire Constabulary and Neighbourhood Watch.

Just visit https://www.hampshirealert.co.uk/pages/2736/1/Home.html and click on the REGISTER button at the top of this page to sign up.
As a registered recipient you will not only benefit from two way messaging but may also hear about positive police action in your community, help identify suspected or wanted criminals or learn about community groups, events or meetings in your area.
As a back up the Parish Council will continue to do its best to inform everyone of significant incidents in the locality as soon as possible.
Those who do not use the internet will be able to receive telephone messages about alerts which may affect them by asking someone to register their phone number on their behalf.
PLEASE NOTE: HAMPSHIRE ALERT IS NOT FOR REPORTING CRIMES OR INCIDENTS – IN AN EMERGENCY DIAL 999, OTHERWISE CONTACT HAMPSHIRE CONSTABULARY ON 101.
REPLACEMENT OF DRAGONS TEETH
You have probably noticed that the Forestry Commission has been replacing dragons teeth in places round the Village. This is part of a programme of works under the New Forest Higher Level Stewardship Scheme to upgrade guttering and dragons teeth to protect the SSSI units habitats and grazing resource from the damaging impacts of unauthorised vehicles access and parking along road verges.
