Annual Report

A copy of our Annual Report should have recently come through your door.  Our thanks to Hook and Odiham Lions, who have once again pounded the streets to distribute them for us.  We have put an electronic copy on our website at https://bit.ly/3tcZ4gD.  If you have misplaced yours, additional paper copies are available from our office.

Play Area – John Morgan Close

The current play area in John Morgan Close is coming to the end of its life, having been built in 1994, and improvements are needed to revamp the area. The Council would like to invest in the area and are asking local residents for their suggestions for improvements that could be made for the benefit of all the community.

Current ideas fall into one of three categories:

  1. Change of use to become an enjoyed facility for a different audience?
  2. Complete removal of the equipment to create a green open space? An alternative play area has been provided off Maynard Drive.
  3. Replace existing play equipment with new equipment, suitable for the area?

Considering the options listed above, the Parish Council would really appreciate and value any feedback by completing the survey on our website https://bit.ly/3qS1dwB

The closing date for the survey is 23:59pm Tuesday 3rd May 2022
