Happy New Year to you all! I hope you had a peaceful and crime free Christmas. Sales promotions go on throughout the year, not just on ‘Black Friday’, but remember that if something appears to be too good to be true, then it probably is! If you go to a car boot sale or are offered something in a pub that really does seem out of place or is ridiculously cheap, please consider that it may be stolen or not as genuine as it could be. ...

District Councillor’s Report

Parish Council

I apologise for not being in attendance at the meeting on 1st December, unfortunately work commitments got in the way: Hants CC/EHDC Devolution bid – This is an ongoing subject and will be discussed further at a full Council meeting on Thursday next. I will update you once I have news. Council Community Grant – I have confirmation that I have £1000.00 available. I am exploring other Grant options to raise another £1000.00. I will then seek assistance from the PC and willing donors from the village to find the balance. The overall amount required is £2800.00 plus VAT for the K6 fully reconditioned phone box. I am waiting for confirmation from BT that the electricity supply can be re-instated. As you know, it is the best place to house the defibrillator. Voluntary Speedwatch Questionnaire – This was distributed to the village by me and one local resident. I am led to believe that every house in Bentworth received one. The closing date was 30th. November and we have received 23 responses. A quick, cursory glance tells me that of these, the majority were in favour of speed restrictions, having said that, to receive such a small response would indicate that the rest of the village seem content with maintaining the status quo. Remembrance Day Service – Was a success with the Bugler. I have expressed my gratitude to the family (and booked them for next year). It is my intention to drop off a nice bottle of wine for Christmas. Many thanks and Merry Christmas Tony Costigan ...
