Our wildflower meadows at Hiltingbury and Fryern are out in flower, worth popping along for a look. Thank you to all the residents who have emailed in telling us how much you have been enjoying them.

Updated 1 June 2020
Tennis Courts: -
Some slight respite in these strange times...As of Wednesday 1 June 2020 the tennis courts can be open for use under less restricted conditions as required by the government's advice/guidelines (see https://www.facebook.com/Chandlers-Ford-Parish-Council-492665031067566/
for LTA published guidance/details): -
1) Players must maintain social distancing at all times between themselves and other players from different households.
2) A player (or players) may play with members of another household(s) and must maintain social distancing as much as possible.
4) Coaching can only be done on a 1:5 basis.
Remember - once you get home wash your hands for 20 seconds or use a sanitiser when you have finished playing.
Sorry, but these are not our rules...they are the government's...If players cannot abide by these rules we will have no option other than to re-close the courts to ensure that we are not complicit in people breaking the guidance.
Currently it looks as if other facilities might re-open sometime around 4 July 2020...watch this space...
Covid-19 and the Parish Council (updated 9 July 2020): -
Everything is moving very fast at the moment. Currently, in line with Government advice, the parish office will have limited opening hours and please contact by phone or email rather than in person. Our sports hall is still closed (until 25 July when they will open for badminton only) but our other outdoor sports facilities (tennis courts, skate parks and MUGAs) are open already.
If you are using our open spaces, please keep 2m distance from each other and wash your hands/sanitise when you get home or before you have a hand to face contact, if you touch any surfaces.
Our play areas are all now open, as per the government's requirements guidance on the safe use of Play Ares and equipment is displayed at each Play Area it is also available here.
Our buildings might appear to be open as we have to flush water, do safety inspections etc but they are not open to the public, so there is no public toilet provision.
Let's all keep safe and well.

The (Church of England) Parish of Chandler’s Ford (St Boniface and St Martin in the Wood) have also launched a Crisis Care Scheme in the light of the developing COVID-19 epidemic. The scheme offers appropriate telephone and practical support to anybody in our community of Chandler’s Ford who is self-isolating, particularly the elderly and vulnerable, who may not have a network of family in the area to support them.
"This is how the support system works:
1. People who are self-isolating can phone the (Church) Parish Office on 8026 5977 and give their details to Suzie our Administrator. The office is open Monday to Friday 9am to 1pm and out of hours there is an answerphone.
2. We will arrange for one of our Care Team to phone them, see how they are, chat about support and how often they might like a phone call over the coming weeks. We can also offer to do simple practical tasks like food shopping and collection of medication, if required.
3. We are happy that people contact us on behalf of others who might value such support, as long as they have the person’s permission to share their details with us.
Please be careful about who you share details with, making sure they are ‘bona fide’ organisations.
To keep up with the special offers available and multi-person activities such as the 50+ Get Active group, keep an eye on the sports hall Website or Facebook page.
