NPA Proposes New Bike Based Transport Scheme.

The National Park Authority (NPA) is considering a new cycle hire based transport scheme in the south east of the New Forest. At this stage, NPA Members want to gauge local support before progressing the project any further. Information is available via the website – www.newforestnpa.gov.uk/publicbikeshare or open house drop-in sessions for residents, parish councillors and local businesses on Monday 28 July, 6-8.30pm at Lyndhurst Community Centre and Wednesday 30 July, 6-8.30pm at Brockenhurst Village Hall.

Should the project to be approved, it would still be subject to formal consultation through the statutory planning process.

Mayor of Christchurch NZ visits Brockenhurst War Graves


On Saturday 5 July, Lianne Dalziel, the recently elected Mayor of Christchurch, New Zealand, visited St Nicholas' Church graveyard to lay a wreath on the Commonwealth War Graves Memorial in memory of the 93 New Zealand soldiers buried there.

The Rev. Neil Smart led those present down to the Memorial and conducted a short service. A wreath, provided by Tim Thomas from the RBL, was laid by the Mayor. The rest of those assembled placed New Zealand remembrance poppies on the other graves.

Councillor Maureen Holding, Chairman of New Forest District Council, Councillor Harry Oram, Chairman of Brockenhurst Parish Council, Tony Foulger, Chairman of the Brockenhurst Royal British Legion and other representatives of village organisations also attended. more

Visit from our Twinning Village Pont St Martin

Once again through the hard work of Brockenhurst Twinning Association we were able to welcome visitors from our French twin village of Pont St Martin (near Nante).  We were particularly pleased to extend friendship to their newly elected Mayor Yannick Fétiveau and his wife Anna. As you will read in the report in the Twinning Association section it was a very successful and poignant visit on the weekend of the 70th anniversary of D Day.

Learn more about Pont St Martin by clicking for key facts or the Village Website  Both sites are in French but if you wish why not use Google or a similar website to translate them.

 

Lengthsmans scheme up and running

With the help of a grant from Hampshire County Council we now have a part time village lengthsman to deal with blocked public drains and minor highway defects around the parish. More details in the summer edition of the Parish Council Newsletter.

 

BROCKENHURST AWARDED HERITAGE LOTTERY GRANT

We are pleased to announce that the Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded Brockenhurst £3000 to create a Heritage Walk based around the WW1 hospital on Tile Barn Hill. The walk is planned to link the locations used by the 24000 injured troops who were sent here for treatment. It will also commemorate the villagers who supported them and the local families that made sacrifices during the war.
