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 http://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/save-alton-s-recycling-centre-1, 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. ...

Farm Notes

The Villager

The wonderful spell of autumnal weather which we have all enjoyed has allowed us to plant most of the winter crops for the 2017 harvest. There is always a balance to be reached at this time of year between planting early which may result in having crops weedy and too forward before the winter or not planted at all because the ground is too wet from autumn / winter rains. The aim is that all the crops are established and growing well before the wet weather arrives and makes any field machinery operations impossible – even the best bits of kit quickly become useless when the ground is wet. The disadvantage of early planting is that there is a very short time window between the previous harvest and seeding so that there is insufficient time for weed seeds to germinate and then be killed off. ...

Last year we were aware that Nature was in trouble. This year 8000 species were checked, and it is noted that over 15 per cent are either already extinct, or on the Red List. ...
