Denmead Parish Council
Do you own land that has a watercourse or drainage ditch on or adjacent to it?
Unfortunately it is fast becoming the time of year when we need to think about the state of Hampshire’s land drainage network. As the rain begins in earnest and leaves begin to fall, all riparian owners (those who have watercourses on or bordering their properties) across Hampshire, and beyond, should be looking at the state of their drainage ditches, culverts and other watercourses to ensure the clear transference of rain water and a reduced risk of localised flooding.
For further details please view this poster prepared by Hampshire County Council.
The first of the winter walks attracted 24 to Wickham where a 2 hour romp was enjoyed by all – 16 stayed to have lunch afterwards at the King’s Head in The Square.
The October walk will be from THE VINE in HAMBLEDON on SATURDAY 28th OCTOBER starting at the usual time of 10 am and last approximately 2 hours – a preview of the walk will be published later in the month.
Walks planned for the remainder of 2017 are as follows:
Saturday 25th November – Rowlands Castle
Saturday 30t December – Denmead Community Centre
Any queries about the walks should be directed firstly to DENMEAD PARISH COUNCIL office or to Martin Lewis (Walks Leader) on 077 1166 1918.
The Police and Crime Commissioner, Michael Lane, is seeking volunteers aged between 14 and 25 years old to help give young people a voice on the crime and policing issues that matter to them most.
The purpose of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Youth Commission is to make young people part of the solution to tackling crime and improving policing, rather than being seen as part of the problem. It will is made up of up to 50 young people aged between 14 and 25.
The Youth Commission currently has four priorities: • Mental Health • Hate Crime • Cyber Safety • Unhealthy Relationships
Youth Commission members identify the issues that young people are concerned about most and gather opinions on what the specific concerns are and ideas on how to tackle them. They also work to raise awareness and educate young people via campaigns, such as this year’s #GoFISH cyber safety campaign, run workshops, speak at events and take part in a range of other activities.
Members of the Youth Commission gain a variety of skills, meet and work with a range of people, learn about different issues that are relevant to them and their peers and get to be part of some great youth orientated events – this year members have attended festivals, youth conferences and summer activity schemes.
If you are interested is applying (or know someone that maybe interested) then please complete the online application form by 03 November 2017 which can be found at www.hampshire-pcc.gov.uk/youthcommission . This is the first part of the two stage application process.
Applicants that reach the second stage will be invited to an assessment evening w/c 20 November. Applicants with experience of the police and criminal justice systems, as an offender, victim or any other interaction are welcome to apply.
