Chandlers Ford Level Crossing Closure and Replacement

Network Rail is inviting the local community to a drop-in session to find out more about plans to close and replace Chandler’s Ford level crossing with a stepped footbridge as part of the organisation’s Railway Upgrade Plan. This is the crossing at Sutherlands Way.

The drop-in session will take place between 12pm and 4pm on Saturday, 6th August at the Ritchie Memorial Hall, and members of the Network Rail team will be on hand to answer questions and update the community on the proposed changes. 


Hiltingbury Repairs:

Over the weekend of 23/24 July the access to the Hiltingbury Recreation Ground, near to Ashdown Road, was repaired replacing a pitted, uneven area with a semi-hard, porous surfacing. It now looks like this:

This followed a complaint being made regarding the safety of the access for buggies etc, and as a result of the repair the resident followed up with a hand delivered letter of thanks, which was much appreciated by Parish Council officers and councillors alike.



Our licenced coach Ola Osuch is doing free tennis coaching sessions for school kids, as an additional Parish Council contribution to 'Summer of Sport', on Monday and Wednesday 25 and 27 July and 15 and 17 August between 10.30 and 12.30 on courts 3 and 4. It is totally free, you just need a tennis racquet (and a bottle of water)!

Please book direct with Ola on 07971 262721

Hiltingbury Tennis Court Key Cards Opening Hours

The new magnetic locks have been fitted to the tennis courts please close the gate(s) when leaving after play. It is important to note that the gates WILL LOCK SHUT OVERNIGHT AT 2200hrs each day!

From 1 February 2016 access has been by key card. Play is on a booking basis on 3 courts and turn up and play on court 4. Play should not last more than an hour and the court should then be given up to the people waiting - play can be extended if nobody is waiting for the court. The play hour is taken as being 'on the hour', not necessarily the time when play started. 

If people turn up and the new hour has started please give up the court to the new arrivals as soon as the actual game you are playing is completed. 

Please see the tennis courts page of the website for Terms and Conditions of Use for the tennis courts (which apply now), further details and the court booking information (needed from 31 January 2016).
