Christmas Fun Evening
The Christmas Fun Evening will take place a week later than usual this year, on Friday 8th December, starting at 6pm with the Christmas Lights switch-on. Come along and join the fun! We will have Santa in his Grotto, the Salvation Army Band, Friday Girls singing carols, Magic Jack, New Forest Morris Dancers and for the first time the New Forest Mummers.
We are pleased to report that SFBB Cabinet 1 has been erected and powered. Connection is being carried out and it is hoped that final commissioning will soon be complete with handover to service providers taking place before Christmas. SFBB can be offered to customers by their chosen supplier once handover has taken place.
Installation and commissioning of Cabinet 2 was expected to follow-on immediately after Cabinet 1, however, unfortunately there was a problem with the routing of the ducts which may result in engineers having to reposition the new cabinet. Subject to the necessary permissions, the cabinet should be installed in early 2018.
The Parish Council have been working with various bodies to achieve flood reduction by identifying watercourses and drains that are particularly prone to blockage so that their clearance can be prioritised. In low lying areas such as Brockenhurst it is particularly important that watercourses and drains are actively managed.
Please see the Flooding section of our Emergency Services webpage for more information.
To report a faulty or blocked watercourse please phone the Parish Clerk on 01590 622829 or New Forest District Council on 023 8028 5000.
Allotments Plots Available!
We have a couple of allotments available at present so if you live in the Parish and are interested in having one please contact the Parish Clerk on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01590 622829.
