Bishopstoke Parish Council would like to help any local residents that wish to enhance their local area by planting wildflowers. Often, the areas best suited for planting are owned by either Eastleigh Borough Council or Hampshire County Council. The Parish Council can help you get in touch with the right people to gain permission for your planting.
The Council may be able to support in other ways too. Anyone interested should contact the Clerk by emailing the Clerk.
Congratulations to all those who were elected to serve on Bishopstoke Parish Council for the next three years.
These web pages will be updated over the course of the next few weeks to reflect the changes that have taken place.
There is a shortened annual meeting taking place at the Bishopstoke Community Centre on 18th May at 7:30pm to elect the Chair and Vice Chair, but any other Council business will be deferred until the first meeting after lockdown restrictions are fully lifted.
The meeting is open to the public but we would ask that anyone intending to attend please let the Clerk know as numbers will be limited by virtue of the restrictions still in place.
MADE BY SPORT "CLUBS IN CRISIS" GRANTS
Made By Sport ‘Clubs In Crisis’ grants are now available for grassroots sports clubs and community and voluntary organisations across Hampshire. Grants of £2,021 will support groups working with young people between the ages of 5–25, within the ‘sport for development’ sector (this includes any physical activity), which can demonstrate that:
· the Covid-19 pandemic has adversely affected them, either operationally or financially
· they require funding to save, resume or adapt their activity
Groups must also actively be working towards one or more of the following social outcomes: using sport to help build a better future through developing life skills, improving mental health, developing employability skills, reducing crime and anti-social behaviour and building strong communities. For more information and to apply before 17th May 2021 please go to: www.hiwcf.com/grant/made-by-sport/.
