The Tip – New Regime

The planned registration scheme for Hampshire Waste & Recycling Centres, noted on this site in early January, has been postponed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. From Monday, 15th June, the number of visits to these centres will be severely restricted, and you will only get in if you have made a time-sensitive booking.  Read all about it here.

CCTV at Chilworth Hall

Chilworth Hall remains closed, but its car park is still available for those who visit the Village Green (which belongs to the Parish Council, and not the Hall). A matter of days before the lockdown began, CCTV was installed at the Hall. There is now a camera monitoring the whole of the car park with some visibility onto the Green. Residents involved in any unfortunate incidents in the car park (e.g. theft of or from vehicles, confrontations, dog-fights etc) should promptly contact the Hall’s management to see if they can secure evidence. A note of the precise time of the incident would be helpful.

Online help for crime victims

The Victim Care Service, funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner and provided by Victim Support, has launched a new website to ensure anyone affected by crime in Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton can access support and advice.

The website offers tips on how to protect yourself from different types of crime and advice on what to do if you experience them. It also includes a comprehensive database of organisations that can be searched by individuals and professionals looking to meet a specific support need. Continue reading

HWRC soon to need car reg

Sometime soon, you’ll find a barrier to entry at the Household Waste Recycling Centre near the BMW garage in Eastleigh. There’s going to be a £5 charge per visit for those living outside Hampshire.  We in Chilworth are in Hampshire, but we still have to register our cars in advance.  Registration is now open here.

Two New Classes in January

January sees two new classes starting at Chilworth Hall, nicely timed for those New Year ‘fitness’ resolutions.

Starting on Tuesday, 7th, Sarah Rowley is bringing Zumba back to the Hall. It’s not too late to sign up. For more details just follow the link.

Later in the month, something new… Men’s Yoga with Enrico.  Yes we already have some excellent Yoga classes and, yes, some of them cater for men, but this one is exclusive so if that appeals to you then now’s your chance. Follow the link for more details.
