Medstead Bowls Club

The Villager

Work on the on the new playing surface of our green, which has been installed by Dale’s Sports Surfaces of Boston, Lincolnshire, started in mid April as planned and progressed very smoothly. The first job was to strip off the old carpet and load it into skips, which was very hard work because it had been soaked by recent rain and so had to be cut into pieces of a manageable weight. Fortunately they had good cool weather for this labour-intensive job and it was completed in well under a week. ...

Medstead Players – Pantomime Auditions

The Villager

Our May meeting was a reading of the revised script for a pantomime to be performed at the beginning of December this year. There was an excellent feedback from the members and they are very enthusiastic about staging it. It has been written by Nita Simpson and pairs Cinderella with Aladdin. Cinderella is about to marry Aladdin, when they find that all their money and wealth has been stolen, though they do not know by whom. As they cannot marry until the debts are paid off, Aladdin has to find a job, but all does not go according to plan. There are 12 adult roles plus a chorus of children. Everyone is welcome to audition it is always great fun. ...

Wildlife Support & Conservation

The Villager

Hedgerows and trees: Leaves and foliage are now growing rapidly with abundant rainfall and warmer weather. Before pruning trees and shrubs, and cutting hedges, it is important to check for nesting birds. Small birds and Blackbirds often nest in hedges and shrubs close to properties, especially if there is a good supply of food and water. If you discover a nest, it is important to wait until the young birds have fledged, before cutting back foliage. ...

District Councillor Report

Parish Council The Villager

It has been a quiet time as far as activities in respect of my Downland Ward responsibilities, of which Bentworth forms part of the picture. I have been concentrating on persuading the Parish Clerks to submit applications to use up the grant fund that is available to me. To this end the School and the Parish have benefitted from 20 new adult chairs which hopefully will be in use this evening. I have also assisted other Parish Councillors with different projects. The most prominent subject matter has been the involvement of the devolution bid that EHDC are involved with as we were founder members along with Solent, Havant, Southampton, Eastleigh and the Isle of Wight Councils. We were expecting the bid to be accepted during the last Budget speech. It was not included in the Chancellor’s Statement as it would appear that there were objections from a small number of Hampshire, Conservative MPs. Whilst this is disappointing, the topic remains intensely political. As such we expect to get the green light within the next few months. ...
