ANNUAL summer outing: There will be no Coffee Club today, at St Mark’s Church. Instead regular visitors are being treated to an annual summer outing. This year they will be going down to Southsea to spend the day at the seaside. This will be followed by fish and chips.

THE Old Down and Beggarwood Wildlife Group: Has its monthly walk this Saturday, meeting at 2pm, at Old Down Hall.

The focus of this month’s walk is Beggarwood – mosaics for wildlife flowers, birds and insects. A suggested donation of £2 is kindly requested. More details are available on their website

REMOVAL of recycling bin: Unfortunately, the bin for recycling cardboard, drinks cans and bottles has now been removed from the Stratton Park recycling point. This bin was regularly being contaminated with other items, which meant that any of the collectable items had to be disposed. We now only have the one bin in Kempshott – located at Buckingham Parade.
