Bassetts Mead

This SANG (Suitable Alternative Natural Green Space) is managed on behalf of the Parish Council by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust (HIWWT).  It is located opposite the Crooked Billett Pub.  The area includes a Chalk River (River Whitewater) that flows through into Whitewater Meadows SANG (located behind Green Hart Park housing estate), fields and a wood.  Following COVID guidelines local volunteers have undertaken work on improving the ditches and woodland corridor, repairing a section of fence and creating some new willow brash revetment to reverse erosion on the river bank.  The HIWWT provide quarterly reports detailing what they have done which can be found on our website at

Drones and BBQ’s

As the weather improves and lockdown restrictions are eased, we would like to remind residents that BBQ’s/fires and the use of drones are not permitted on Parish Council land e.g. Bassetts Mead, Wellworth Park, Mitchells Field, Hartletts Park etc.  Please can residents also dispose of their litter responsibly or take it home, to help keep our green spaces litter free for the safety and enjoyment of everyone.
