WWI Centenary Commemorations

August 4th marks the Centenary of the outbreak of WWI and over the next four years Brockenhurst expects an increase in visitors to the Commonwealth War Graves at St Nicholas' Churchyard. Many will travel from New Zealand to pay their respects. At the time the life of the 2000 villagers was hugely influenced by the creation of a military hospital that tended 3000 Indian and 21000 New Zealand troops in just four years. In commemoration of the sacrifices made during WWI by both the soldiers and by our own villagers, many of whom suffered greatly, the Parish Council, the Parish Church and Royal British Legion are planning a quiet memorial walk to link the key WWI sites in the village. In the Church a new exhibition will include facilities for anyone to add family reminiscences of the soldiers, both Commonwealth and local who fought in World War l.

D Day – Commemoration 21st June – Village Event - Call for Volunteers

The Parish Council and Business Association are enthusiastically supporting the event (details here) to replicate the successful of the Fun Evenings of recent years. Planning is going well but we need individuals to act as visitor guides, street marshals and provide general assistance on the day. We also need “back room” volunteers to help advertise the event, obtain copies of artefacts, and decorate the streets. Can you help? Everyone will be most welcome.

Please contact for Jane on 622327. Sue on 622227 or Mary on 622829 or volunteer through any participating village organisation. Please see our poster and display it if you can.

ANNUAL PARISH MEETING - April 22nd

There can be, and often is, confusion between the Annual Parish Meeting and the Annual General Meeting of the Parish Council. It is hoped this explanation will help address this. All Parish and Town Councils throughout England are required by law to hold an Annual Parish Meeting. The 2014 meeting is planned for April 22nd. The purpose of the meeting is so that the Parish Council can explain what it has been doing over the last year and it enables the electors to have their say on anything they consider is important to the people of the Parish. All the local government electors for the Parish can attend the meeting. It is NOT a Meeting of the Parish Council. Anyone may attend but only registered electors of Brockenhurst Parish may speak and vote. Any registered elector may ask questions of the Council, which will usually be answered by the Chairperson, the Clerk to the Council, or a designated Councillor. An elector may also make suggestions and comment on anything pertinent to the people of Brockenhurst. This will be welcomed and is the whole purpose of the meeting.
