BRAMSHOTT HILL LADIES ARE BACK ON THE COURSE AND IN FINE FORM Bramshott Hill Seniors Outdoor bowling clubs were given the go ahead to open on 13th May and despite the challenging restrictions and social distancing guidelines, Waterside Bowling Club was determined to get up and running as soon as they could. ey opened their greens on the 19th May with all the necessary safety regulations. It was a very strange experience at rst as bowling clubs thrive on friendship and social interaction so to only be able to play with one other member at a time and on every other rink with a maximum of 6 on an entire green was not what they are used to. e normal use and sharing of equipment was also a ‘no no’ with members having to book rinks before hand and arriving at pre-arranged times so as not to meet each other. Nonetheless, once you have the ‘bowling bug’ these hurdles are well worth it and many of their members returned as soon as they were able. However, they all missed Older teams from Fawley RFC Juniors were excited to return to summer training last month,a er a prolonged absence due to the pandemic. Following strict health and safety procedures from the RFU and government guidelines relating to team sports, youngsters were able to enjoy being back on the pitches at Gang Warily.

So Janet Ballard, the Waterside Senior Coach & Chairman designed a singles ladder which could be played between 2 players, with no marker required. e uptake was incredible and a er 7 weeks, a total of 265 games were played involving 48 of our members. 3 Divisions were compiled with promotions and demotions taking place half way through the competition culminating in a Finals Play O between the top 4 players of each division on Saturday 18th July. ese nals were well supported and keenly contested with their President, Roger Mitchell presenting a pennant to each Division winner. is unique singles ladder has given their members the chance to remember the good things in life; friendship, laughter and their wonderful Bowls Club. As Lockdown eases and more members are able to play on the same rink and green, they now look forward to the Pairs League where 153 games will be played between 26 pairs. Residents Reminded To Register For Continued Free Access To Recycling Centres Hampshire County Council is reminding people to register their vehicles for continued, automatic free access to Hampshire Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs). Councillor Rob Humby, Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment, said: “Thank you to the many thousands of people who have already registered for this new system. Hampshire residents will continue to be able to use Hampshire HWRCs for free. We’re introducing this system because I want to find a way that provides effective and environmentally practicable options for residents who live close to Hampshire’s borders, to continue to access our HWRCs, but in a way that is fairer to Hampshire residents who pay for the cost of the service through their council tax.” Over 345,000 households have already successfully registered for the system which will be controlled by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and will ensure continued free access for Hampshire residents to any of Hampshire’s 24 HWRCs to dispose of household waste, while access for non-Hampshire residents (excluding Dorset Council residents) will be for a fee of £5 per visit. Councillor Humby continued: “Dealing with household waste is costly, which is why a number of our neighbouring authorities have already banned residents from outside their areas using their HWRCs. This is not our intention in Hampshire – instead, a charge of £5 per visit for non- Hampshire residents will be introduced from August to offset the £500,000 annual cost of dealing with waste from non-Hampshire residents visiting our sites. We need to look carefully at all our costs and see where we can make savings - the financial pressures faced by local authorities were already considerable due to growing demand for council services and reduced funding from Government, and we now need to meet the challenges of unplanned costs and lost income due to the pandemic. I believe this is a fair and practical way to help with that.” e e-permit scheme was originally intended to begin on 1st April, but HWRCs were closed at the end of March following Government advice on essential travel during the Coronavirus lockdown. e HWRCs reopened to the public on 11th May 2020 with new Covid-safe measures in place, which reduced capacity on sites and led to the introduction of a booking system to manage demand and tra c queues.
