Marchwood is a developing village with easy access to both the New Forest and Southampton.
There is a strong sense of community here in the village. We have a thriving Village Hall with many activities on offer there.
We are also very lucky to be served by excellent schools and Local Business. You can access the schools own web sites from this site, as well as the Business of the Parish Council in the form of Agendas and Minutes. A Calendar of Meetings giving details of all the Parish Council meetings to be held is also available online.
You can view the latest Marchwood Village News publication that is distributed by a band of loyal volunteers throughout the village four times a year. (Summer 2014 edition) now available as an E-Publication)
I hope you enjoy using the website.
Chairman Marchwood Parish Council.
Candlelit vigil to occur in the evening of Monday 4 August

This is to mark that one hundred years ago (4 Aug 1914), the British Empire declared war on Germany. The British Foreign Secretary (Viscount Edward Grey) on the outbreak of WW1 said “the lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our time”
The Graffiti spray painted on the footway near the Parish Hall, which Hampshire County Highways were unable to clean off, lead to the resurfacing of the footway that cost £600. This is money that could and should have been spent on repairs elsewhere within the village !
