Parish Council Notices May 2020

There has been a further spell of criminal behaviour in East Boldre, including damage to the Village Hall lights and two lots of very offensive graffiti.  The Parish Council find all criminal activity in the village totally unacceptable.  It is important that who ever is responsible for the graffiti in the village to reflect on their antisocial behaviour and the negative effects on the village community as a whole. The Parish Council is working closely with the Police to explore ways to deal with the ongoing criminal activity in our village during the last 12 months. The Community Police have had an active presence in East Boldre and have made good progress engaging with residents.  The council must reiterate the importance of reporting all criminal damage which occurs in the village to the police, either online or by telephoning 101.  Without a full record of criminal activity, the police cannot build an accurate profile of the issues in East Boldre.

The consolidated allotment site has been a hive of activity over the past month with lots of site clearing, planting and new tenants establishing their plots. We only have ¼ vacant plot now and plenty of interest in the allotments from East Boldre residents.

EBOH project is now nearing completion. The interpretation graphics have been approved by NFNPA and the audio equipment (funded by the Beaufort Trust) has been ordered.  

Following concerns about speeding, the police has advised that the village set up a speed watch group. This is now underway and when the Covid-19 lockdown is lifted, the group of volunteers will be out in the village with a speed gun.

Several complaints have been made about inconsiderate parking which at times blocks access to Matthews Lane completely and often reduces visibility for residents driving in and out of the lane. The council is looking in to various options to improve this but top of the list is a request to shop visitors to park considerately!

Development of the East Boldre Emergency Plan

You may know that a working group for the Parish Council is in the process of developing an Emergency Plan for the Parish. An essential part of this development is to distribute questionnaires to all households seeking your support as volunteers to assist the village in the event of a serious incident, like a major fire or weather/loss of power event. Read more.

Saturday Bus Service Cancelled

Due to Hampshire County Council cuts, the 112 Saturday bus service ceased running in April this year. At the request of the Parish Council, HCC invited tenders for a replacement taxi or minibus service replacing the bus service once a day on a Saturday. Only one company responded, unfortunately their quote was excessive and would be unsustainable.

The Parish Council has been working hard to find alternative transport to replace the bus service: Read more.
