The website has been focused on White Dirt Farm and the consultation for the last week, but other great things are happening in Horndean over the next months.
MP Question Time:
First a reminder, our Member of Parliament George Hollingbery MP is the subject of our very own Horndean Question Time at Jubilee Hall, Crouch Lane on Friday 28th February from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. I am sure that White Dirt Farm will be one of the topics, but this is a great opportunity to ask our MP about UKIP, Scotland In / Out, Potholes, The Economy, Immigration, Housing generally and more. If you have a view please come and express it. Just for fun, the first person working the word “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” into their question will get a bottle of champagne from me.
The War Memorial fund is growing and Horndean Parish Council have set up a website to promote this. Please visit this link to see more about how they hope to replace the 2m tall goddess that was lost in a freak accident many many years ago. www.horndeanvillage.co.uk
Police and Crime Commissioner:
The Police and Crime Commissioner has started a monthly bulletin about current issues. these include funding, operations, and current priorities. Click on THIS LINK to see the February bulletin.
George Hollingbery MP responded to the new initiatives on body cameras and other technology with the following statement:
“It’s fantastic that an effective police and crime commissioner, working alongside a dynamic and forward thinking chief constable, can introduce new approaches to policing across the county – crucially using new technology and new methods to save time and money, while keeping a good level of service.
“I’m particularly pleased to see the emphasis on neighbourhood and preventative policing and the pledge for better partnerships with councils and other public sector bodies, especially in the area of greater protection for vulnerable adults and children – an issue which has recently caused some concern to the public.
“To reduce the deficit cuts to services have been inevitable, but what is not inevitable is a drop in the level of service the public has come to expect from the force. This has not happened, as is amply shown by the drop in crime across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
“Put bluntly: the police are doing a very good job in difficult times.”
