Bishopstoke Parish Council is pleased to announce that it has agreed to grant £2,000 to Bishopstoke Guides to help with the costs of new fire safety equipment and updating their kitchen. 

Y-Zone Anti-social Behaviour

As part of efforts to reduce the amount of anti-social behaviour on Blackberry Drive Bishopstoke Parish Council is moving the benches from outside the Y-Zone to a new location, behind the car park. It is hoped there will be less incentive for people to congregate by the Y-Zone, and that the benches will be more useful to the local community in their new location.
