Citizen of the Year 2017

 Press Release 12 April 2017

 

The New Milton Citizen of the Year Award was presented to Geoffrey Harris at the Annual Towns Meeting held at New Milton Town Hall on Tuesday 11 April 2017.  The Town Mayor, Cllr David Hawkins was delighted to present the award to Geoffrey, who was nominated by his appreciative neighbours living at Waverley House, New Milton.

 

Geoffrey Harris is very well thought of by his neighbours, being a wonderful neighbour and friend, assisting wherever he can, doing shopping, gardening and providing reassurance and emotional support.   One of the residents at Waverley House has even written a lovely little poem about his endeavours to help – which unfortunately led to a broken arm for Geoff!

 

The New Milton Citizen of the Year is an annual award presented to deserving residents who have shown service to the community, have shown courage in overcoming / coping with disability and service to the community, or demonstrated an act of bravery, or shown a helping / caring attitude to someone disadvantaged.  Geoff Harris completely fulfilled this criteria and the Mayor was very impressed with Geoff being selfless and obliging to all those in need.

 

Well done Geoff!

CHANGES TO RECYCLING BANKS March 31, 2017

New Forest District Council have made changes to the network of recycling banks in the New Forest in March, including New Milton.

This is the text from their website –

There are currently around 100 sites across the New Forest where residents can recycle paper, cardboard, glass bottles and jars. Many of the sites also have privately-run textile banks or book banks.

What changes are going to happen?

The number of recycling banks will be reduced to a network of 20 sites in the most frequently-used locations. The work to remove the banks from other locations should be completed by the end of March 2017.

We are making these changes because more can be recycled at home following the introduction of household glass collections.

The 20 remaining sites will have banks for glass bottles and jars and banks for paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, tins, cans and aerosols; the same as the clear sack.

Which sites will stay open?

Twenty of the sites will stay open to use for extra recycling. These remaining sites will have banks for glass bottles and jars and banks for paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, tins, cans and aerosols; the same as the clear sack.

These are the sites open in New Milton

New Milton Elm Avenue car park, New Miltonand

Tesco superstore, Caird Avenue
