Village Consultation

Come and join us Wednesday (tomorrow) 10 September at 7pm in the Village Hall to discuss the future of the soon to be demolished Highwood Site. In April this year, Highwood Nursery was relocated to Brockenhurst College and the temporary move of the Parish Council offices to the Village Hall means that the 50 year old (temporary) buildings are now being demolished and the area cleared. The Brockenhurst Village Trust, who manage the site on behalf of the community, are seeking ideas, suggestions and proposals as to future plans which could benefit all ages of the community. The area being cleared is acres and can accommodate more than one proposal onto which could be erected new structures, capable of adaption to meet particular needs. The Trust also are welcoming letters of proposal through direct discussion. Should you feel this could be helpful, please email or telephone 01590 622580 with your response.

Can you help with a raffle prize?

Brockenhurst Village Trust is the self funded charity that manages the Village Hall, which is a large and much used multi space community building. Each month we estimate our Hall is visited by 3000 people from individuals, community groups, businesses and charities. Our aim is to be accessible to the whole community. Our car park is very large and is used by the whole village when space is needed during events such as D-Day celebrations, Remembrance Sunday, Village celebrations etc as well as the day to day needs of the users of the Hall. Recent bad weather has damaged our car park beyond that which is acceptable and recently we repaired the area most badly damaged by using all our reserves plus kind donations and grants from Brockenhurst Parish Council and Hampshire County Council. We are now raising funds to finish the whole area for the benefit of everyone. We are hosting a range of fundraising events for this and we are hoping that you will consider offering a raffle prize to help us towards our goal? Our main event is titled The Gatsby Gala on Saturday 29 November and is where the raffle prize will be offered. Of course you would be more than welcome on the night – it is a great way to celebrate your business Christmas party.
