There will also be an electric pump to top up the water from the brook. The work is being paid for from the Parish Council village amenity fund and a generous donation from Nick and Alix Kirkham of Glove Factory Studios.

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.
The Parish Council undertake a survey of all footpaths in Holt every year, this ensures that we have evidence of existence and also that maintenance issues are reported to the relevant authority where they cannot be dealt with on a local basis. We will soon be commencing the 2016 walks (see the footpaths section of this website for previous year’s results). If you are a regular walker or would like to explore the wonderful countryside and would be willing to help us please use the Contact the Parish Council tab and we will give you further details of how to participate.
