    “What if”…..there is a power cut?

    Power companies have launched a new national power cut phone line 105 to help people contact their local electricity network company. Callers dialling the free 105 number will be put straight through to their local electricity network operator, avoiding potential confusion or people contacting the wrong organisation. Using the 105 number, electricity customers will be able to report or get information about power cuts and report damage to electricity power lines and substations. Do you need extra support during a power cut or know someone who does? This free of charge service provides support to vulnerable people during a power cut.To find out more information, go to Scottish and Southern Electricity Network and the UK Power…

    Duncton View Point Clearance & Fly Tipping

    During the recent clearance at Duncton View Point, it was shocking and upsetting to see how much rubbish has been and still continues to be, dumped at the site.  To help with this, the Parish Council has installed a bin at the site and will pay for weekly ongoing collections. There is also new signage at the site and future plans to perhaps fence off the slope. Fly-tipping is the illegal deposit of waste and carries a prison sentence and high fines. Chichester District Council has an enforcement team and is working hard to bring fly tippers to justice. Residents can report fly tipping by going to http://www.chichester.gov.uk/flytippingThe Midhurst and Petworth Observer…

    Duncton Hall and Recreation Ground – posted 10th September 2019

    The AGM was held on Wednesday, September 4.Andy Beadsley was re-elected as Treasurer and Alison Pindell Secretary, with Tom Cole agreeing to continue in an acting chairman role. Other Committee members are Peter Thomas, Hilary O’Sullivan and Katharine Minchin, and we are pleased that Louise Exall and Sue Thomas are joining us and will help in organising events.  The Hall remains in a good position financially. Turnover in the year to May was just under £21k and a modest surplus was generated. However, the important wedding market has slowed, but we were able to attract other hirers to part compensate.    We have continued to progress our Hall improvement programme. Over…
