Perhaps something to be aware of – the police in Romsey have dispersal powers from noon on Friday, 23rd April until 6am on Monday, 26th April. These have been arranged in light of the recent rise in anti-social behaviour incidents.
This ‘Extra Care’ scheme in Romsey is nearing completion. It stems from a partnership between HCC, TVBC and Places for People and includes fifty-four new homes, including thirty-four for affordable rent and seventeen for shared ownership, all for people aged over 55 who have eligible care and support needs.

If we turn a blind eye, we ourselves become part of the fly-tipping problem even though we probably will not be prosecuted.
If you live in Chilworth, your normal (brown) bin day would be this Wednesday, 23rd December. As it’s Christmas week, Chilworth’s bin day has been brought forward one day, to Tuesday, 22nd December. Continue reading
Whenever we receive updates from our MP, the Rt Hon Caroline Nokes, they will be made available on her page on this site.
It’s that time of year again (or should that read “it’s one of those times of year again”?)
