Test of Public Warning System
2.30 pm and 7.00 pm
Tuesday 7th October 2014
The public warning system which would sound in an emergency is
tested annually. It will next be tested at the times shown above.
The sound of the alarm is a slow two-tone warble, activated for one minute. This will be followed by the all-clear which is a continuous tone. Local residents need take no action as a result of hearing these tests. In the unlikely event of any changes to the planned timing, information will be broadcast on BBC Radio Solent (96.1 FM, 999MW). Visit the Fawley Refinery section at www.fawleyonline.org.uk for safety information and to hear the alarm. If you would like further information, please telephone Fawley on (023) 8089 2511. To listen to a recording of the alarms, call Freephone 0800 1693597
As the evenings draw in this autumn, cyclists are reminded to make sure they are seen by other road users.

Lepe Country Park is a popular destination for many people even outside the school holidays and the car park was busy both when we arrived and on our return. People were sailing on the water of the Solent, cycling along the country lanes, walking around the park or just lounging along the shoreline. The walk around the Lepe Loop was also busy and we met many walkers on our journey.
Exbury Gardens in the New Forest is set to stage its annual Ghost Train during half-term week, Sat 25 October to Sun 2 November, and is appealing for charities, clubs and societies to fashion suitably spooky scarecrows.

Don’t help burglars break into your property by leaving tools lying around outside when you’re not at home.
Old or worn electric blankets could be dangerous and cause a fire.
“You don’t have to put up with antisocial behaviour in your neighbourhood” – that’s the message being given to victims in the New Forest.
Visitors to the National Trust Mottisfont Abbey and gardens can look forward to a good day out but many are unaware that the countryside around the village of Mottisfont can be equally rewarding.

This guidance will help if pet dogs are causing problems
on your farm, estate, shoot, livery or nature reserve.
Recent research in Hampshire gives us a better
understanding of why dog owners do what they do.
