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 ...

Garden Notes

Garden Club

What a curious year we have had, a dreary summer and the warmest greyest November that I can remember. All sorts of plants have been confused by it. Some alliums I planted are eight inches high already. Hellebores are showing their flowers before I have managed to cut the old leaves off. ...

Wildlife Support & Conservation

The Villager

A section of hedgerow on the western boundary of the Charles Church development has been removed in order to site a soak away. This has impacted on the recreation ground at Four Marks. Charles Church had dealt with filling in gaps with native planting, Hawthorne, Hazel, etc., but this was also removed. I called by and spoke to the site manager in November, and he told me it would eventually be replanted. ...
