Woodland Planting Scheme Consultation Flyer
UPM Tilhill – the company managing the proposal – will be giving a presentation of the proposed scheme.
Where: At the Drax Hall
When: Monday 11th February 2013
From 3pm – 7pm villagers are invited to come along and view the proposal.
From 7pm – 9pm there will be more formal presentations from UPM, The Forestry Commission, and the owner, Dr Brian May. There will also be an opportunity for villagers to ask questions and air their views.
The site covers approximately 63 hectares (155 acres) and will have a major impact on the southern side of the village, so do take this opportunity to come along, listen to the proposal, ask your questions, offer suggestions and air any concerns you may have.
Bere Regis will be hosting a Jubilee Celebration on the Bank Holiday Monday 4th June. The fun will start with the Pageant Parade, leaving Shitterton for a tour of the village at approximately 2:15/2:30. The Pageant will be led by the Majorettes from Poole followed by themed decorated floats and numerous village organisations providing a colourful and fun filled turnout. A steam engine and various motor vehicles will also join the parade.
It has now been some time since many residents contributed to the Commemorative Stone Signs and we had hoped to have them all installed by now. Unfortunately, the weather has upset our plans and all the quarries are currently under water following the severe rainfall throughout the last few months. Luckily, two of the stones had been worked on prior to the worst of the rain and, with the exception of the inscriptions, are now more or less complete.
At the June meeting of the Parish Council, it was agreed that the two completed stones would be used for the Royal Oak site and the Milborne Road site (as these were both full) and they would be put in place as soon as they are ready. The Rye Hill stone will be installed as soon as it is finished. It is hoped that the first two stones will be in place and we will be able to organise an official unveiling some time in September but, as soon as details are known, a note will be sent out to all contributors and posted on the web site and on notice boards.
Thank you for your patience.
