Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

Reading Julian’s farming notes in last month’s Villager I found that he was not ploughing his fields. He was cutting up the soil and disturbing the surface but was not turning the soil over.

Possible Closure of Alton Recycling Centre

Parish Council

Due to cuts in spending HCC are considering closing several recycling centres in Hampshire. One of the centres at risk is Alton. Initially from the 1st January 2017 all recycling centres will be opening at 11am and be closed on Thursdays. If we are to stand any chance of saving the local centre it is necessary to sign a petition, such as, write to your local MP or write to HCC or all three. If Alton closes the nearest centres are Bordon or Petersfield. The loss of this facility will almost certainly mean that we will see much more fly tipping along our lanes. ...
