The Council will be holding its annual assembly for 2021 on the 4th of May at 18:30 followed by an abridged council meeting. The annual assembly is an opportunity for the Parish Council to report on its achievements over the last 12 months and for an open forum for members of the public to ask questions or report concerns. The annual assembly in 2020 was not held due to COVID-19. This year, it will be held remotely over Zoom. Please look out for details on the Parish Notice Boards, Facebook and the Boldre Parish Council website.

BPC has sent requests for final designs for the new play area from the four vendors selected in from our initial review. Two vendors have responded with updated proposals and the council will be reviewing these in order to make a final decision. It is hoped that this process will be completed in time for approval at the July Parish Council meeting.

BPC agreed to repair defects in the entrance to the recreation ground from Burnt House Lane. This entrance is seen increased usage with weekly football games and the surface is becoming worn.

BPC would like to thank Hampshire County Councillor Michael White for his work supporting the Parish within Hampshire County Council. BPC understands that Councillor White does not intend to stand in the upcoming election.

The Council currently has a vacancy for a Councillor. Notices will be posted on the BPC notice boards and online. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the parish and work on behalf of the community.

The date for the next Parish Council meeting is May 4th. This will be an online meeting and details will be made available for the public to join.
