We are contacting all households – electoral registration
We will be contacting all households over the summer to keep the electoral register up to date. We have a legal duty to do this every year.
It’s important you respond to these messages from NFDC, so we can make sure we have the right details for your household on the electoral register.
You may be contacted by email or post, or, as a last resort, in person at your door.
In the current public health situation please follow the instructions we send for your household, and respond online, so that we can avoid these face to face visits and help keep everyone safe.
There’s information about registering to vote on the Electoral Commission website: https://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/i-am-a/voter
If you have any questions, please contact us at ElectoralServices@nfdc.gov.uk
Following on from the recent community initiative to provide pavement chalks to all primary school age children in Marchwood, the group of community volunteers involved wanted to do more to help those most in need locally and to support those in our amazing NHS who are right at the frontline of this global pandemic.
They collectively came up with the idea to re-use the ‘We Love Marchwood’ artwork that was created by Luke Mostran as part of the pavement chalk initiative.
After obtaining the kind financial support of Southampton Football Club, New Forest Care, Welcome Marchwood (Co-op) and private donors they designed and procured around 600 reusable cotton shopping bags which are now on sale at £5 each exclusively at Welcome Marchwood (Co-Op).
With this sustainable charitable purchase 100% of proceeds are being split evenly between the Waterside Foodbank and Brighterway (Southern Health NHS Trust)
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, now available as an E-Publication on Desktop and Tablet.
I hope you enjoy using the website.
Marchwood Parish Council.
