The Parish Council are currently in the process of raising funds to re-site the current defibrillator to make it more accessible. Generous donations have already been pledged and with a little more help we will be able to site another one in the village. If you would like to contribute there are collecting boxes in The Old Ham Tree and and the Holt Superstore.
At the recent Parish Council meeting Mr. Martin Tidman, Wessex Water, stressed the need for members of the public to report any problems to them to help ensure that they provide a good service. The number to ring is 0345 600 4 600. He also spoke about the problems caused by wet wipes being flushed away – about 80% of all blockages in sewers are caused by wet wipes and talks are ongoing with manufacturers for packaging to be relabelled. In the meantime, be aware that many products labelled ‘flushable’ are not and they are causing huge problems for the water companies.
The Parish Council would like to express their sadness following the death of Councillor Mervyn Osman on 14 April 2016 and our sympathy is extended to Sue and the family.
