Chairman's Report -
                   Councillor Fred White

         Cllr. David Dale
         It is a sad coincidence that I have to report a further
         resignation of another Councillor.  In the summer we
         lost Jane Bovey and now David Dale because of other
         commitments specifically his charity activities in
         Rwanda.
         David’s thoughtful contribution to me personally and
         more generally to my colleagues will be missed.

         Cllr. David Makinson
         The good news is that David Makinson has stepped forward,  some of you
         who are older will remember him. He was a councillor in the past and has now
         returned with a lifetime of experience to contribute towards our community.
         Welcome David.

         We have now found one replacement but we need an additional Councillor.
         Do you have the time and commitment?  Please contact the office if you are
         interested in joining us.

         It has been a busy time since I last reported to you in the Summer.  There
         have been two important events to report.
         Marchwood Heroes
         I have reported at length elsewhere about our Marchwood Heroes
                            th
         celebrations on the 14  September. Well done to all those who received
         awards.

         Freedom of the New Forest
         I represented the Parish at the Freedom of the New Forest District to17 Port
         and Maritime Regiment RLC (Marchwood)  at Lyndhurst on Sunday 25 th
         September.  Amongst those who accompanied me were your two District
         Councillors, Alison Hoare and Sue Benison together with David Harrison,
         County Councillor. The regiment has been given the right, honour and
         distinction of marching through the streets of the District on all ceremonial
         occasions with “swords drawn, bayonets fixed, drums beating, bands playing
         and colours flying”.
