News letter

Rose Lane

Play Area

Thank you for your overwhelming response to the Playground Survey carried out in May.
The slide has now been removed.
We have decided to leave the play area as an open space a for the time being, and we will review the situation as necessary at a later date.

Beating the Bounds

To celebrate the establishment of Fyfield Village, come and join us in the centuries old tradition of “Beating the Bounds,”
Before the age of maps, villagers used to walk the boundaries annually. The local urchins would identify every fifth tree, with a mark. This would enable everyone to recognise the limits of the their Parish.

The date 13th October 2007 start time 10.00 am at the church.

We are hoping to provide coffee and bacon butties to fortify the participants.
Please wear suitable footwear and clothing, as it will be muddy over the fields. It will take place regardless of weather conditions.


We are about to embark on a most ambitious project to date.

We need to produce a Parish Plan to detail how we are now, and our aspirations for the future. These Parish Plans are about our community issues, environments and requirements now and in the future.

It is important that we all have an input.

It is a Government initiative to produce a Village Design Statement. Test Valley Borough Council encourage and support all the Village Parish Plans.

This is not just about economics. But includes softer issues, like how the village looks now and how we want to be perceived in the future.

In order to produce a meaningful plan we will need everybody's support and input.

We shall shortly be forming a steering committee and we will welcome every volunteer.

The Project launch date will be announced shortly.
