All help will be most welcome to put up the various tents, gazebos, stands etc on the day from 9.30am, and also for taking everything down from about 4pm.
If you can lend a gazebo or suitable tent that would be great: just bring it along on the morning.

FOREST PHARMACY BARTLEY – PATIENT SURVEY
If you use the Forest Pharmacy in Bartley you may wish to complete the Forest Pharmacy Patient Survey and take it to the pharmacy.
The purpose of the survey is to gain a better understanding of the needs of the local population ahead of making further decisions regarding a proposal to provide pharmaceutical services under a new Local Pharmaceutical Services (LPS) contract that were previously provided by the pharmacy under the Essential Small Pharmacy LPS scheme which terminated on 31 March 2015. The services include dispensing services, repeat dispensing services, disposal services in respect of unwanted drugs, promotion of healthy lifestyles, signposting, support for self-care, medicines use review and the new medicines service.
The survey can also be completed on line by visiting
or by filling in a paper copy at Bartley Post Office or the Pharmacy itself.
The closing date is Friday 14th August.

ADVICE REGARDING IRISH MALES SELLING GOODS FROM VEHICLES
The sharp eyed amongst you will have read a further message on Hampshire Alert about reports received from the community in different parts of the New Forest concerning suspicious persons who were predominately Irish males who were cold calling at addresses. They were also reported as stopping on the roadside and trying to sell garden machinery, or general purpose electrical equipment such as smart phones and generators.
At this time there is nothing to suggest that the items for sale are stolen. However, it is suspected that the goods may be of substandard quality, despite the pricing being similar to new products.
We would urge people not to purchase any of these items, and be mindful of any suspicious activity in your area. Please contact 101 and report any details you may have noted about the person(s) and or vehicle that was being used i.e. number plate, colour, description, any identifying features, i.e. stickers in rear windows, dents etc.
