HIT AND RUN IN LYNDHURST

Were you in Lyndhurst on Thursday 30th May 2019 between 12.30 and 13:00 and did you witness a hit and run incident at the exit to the public car park (ie between Pages and the Lyndhurst Working Mens Club)? A man from Minstead was hit by a car that failed to stop when leaving the car park, at the junction with the High Street, he went onto the bonnet and the car drove off without stopping. It was a small car, possibly a Mini in a light colour and may have a visible scratch on the bonnet.

If you saw anything please let us know at minsteadpc@gmail.com and/or contact the Police on 101 or visit the Hampshire Police website by clicking  HERE.

2019 IS THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE NATIONAL PARKS

It’s 70 years since the 1949 Act of Parliament that established the family of National Parks in England and Wales. Known as Britain’s breathing spaces, national parks are areas of spectacular landscape which are given the highest level of protection so that everyone can visit and enjoy them.

To celebrate the anniversary there is a nationwide Year of Green Action – a year-long drive to get more people from all backgrounds involved in projects to improve the natural world.

Throughout 2019 there will be events and activities across the New Forest aiming to help people connect, protect and enhance nature.

Click HERE and Year of Green Action to find out more.

KEEP YOUR DISTANCE CAMPAIGN

As many will know, New Forest organisations are calling on visitors and residents to keep their distance from the National Park’s free-roaming animals.  The animals’ owners and local organisations have come together to issue the call as concerns mount that people are putting themselves and the animals at risk by getting too close.  Click HERE to find out more and please spread the word to friends, relations and others you know who are visiting the New Forest and do not necessarily have as good an understanding of commoning and livestock as those who live here.

NEW FOREST FILM FESTIVAL 8-16 JUNE

The New Forest Film Festival is fast approaching – and there are lots of events being held across the New Forest to celebrate! From drive-in movies to quizzes, there’s something for everyone.  There are 15 community cinemas around the New Forest as well as various venues all hosting film related events. Visit https://newforestfilmfestival.com/ for further information and click HERE for details of the various events.

D-DAY AND THE CANADIAN MEMORIAL AT MOGSHADE HILL

Amongst the many other D-day 75th anniversary celebrations was a Remembrance and Rededication Service at the Canadian Memirial at Mogshade Hill on Wednesday 5th June.  A cross was erected here on 14th April 1944 by men of the 3rd Canadian Division of the Royal Canadian Army Service Corps who were stationed in the area during the build up to D-day.

The original two pine logs that were bolted together to form the Cross were replaced with New Forest oak in 1949 held together with the original bolt.  The Cross has since been replaced again using local oak and the original bolt.

On the Sunday nearest 6th June every year the New Forest Fellowship of Services holds a remembrance service at the Memorial so that future generations do not forget the Canadian presence in Hampshire in 1944.
