Individual Electoral Registration

Register to Vote

The registration system to vote changed in June 2014, with the new system called ‘Individual Electoral Registration’ (IER).

Test Valley Borough Council have written to anyone who needs to re-register, as everyone is now responsible for registering themselves, unlike the old system when the ‘head of every household’ could register everyone who lived at their address.

If you weren’t registered to vote previously, you can register under the new system.  Go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote  fill in your name, address, date of birth and national insurance number and get confirmation to say you’re registered.

If you were already registered to vote, you should have received a letter from TVBC to tell you whether you need to take action to join the new register.  Most people who are currently registered have been added to the new register automatically. The letter will tell you if you’ve already been added to the new register. If you need to re-register, the letter will tell you what you need to do.  Registering to vote is free.

If you haven’t received a letter about registration, you should contact TVBC Electoral Services for information on whether or not you need to do anything.

Dementia Awareness

Are you interested in learning about dementia? Would you like to help raise awareness and become a Dementia Champion?

Dementia is one of the biggest global health, social and economic challenges facing society today. The impact of the disease, not just on the lives of people living with dementia, but also on their communities, families, carers and friends is immeasurable.

Andover Mind and the Borough Council are now looking for enthusiastic people to train as ‘Dementia Champions’. If you are over the age of 18, have an interest in dementia, enjoy talking to groups of people and are willing to dedicate some time to run Dementia Friends information sessions, you could become a ‘Dementia Champion’.

Andover Mind will be hosting a Dementia Friends Champions Training day on Tuesday 2nd December at the Village Hall, Longstock. The training will be delivered by the Alzheimer’s Society and is completely free including refreshments and a light sandwich lunch. As well as developing an understanding of dementia and the small things that can be done to make a difference to people living with the condition, the session will equip participants with the skills to deliver short dementia awareness sessions to others.

If you want to book a place, find out more or have any questions please contact Julie Eden, Dementia Champions Co-ordinator for Winchester and Test Valley, email: julie.eden@andovermind.org.uk 0r telephone her on 07810 283813.  Places are limited so please contact Julie as soon as possible if you would like to attend.

 

 

 

Fly Tipping

‘Fly tipping’ or ‘dumping’ are the common terms used to describe the illegal deposit of waste onto land.

It is an offence under the Environmental Protection Act (1990) to fly tip any material.

The TVBC Environmental Service investigates all reports of fly tipping and will remove fly tipped waste from public land. Fly tipped waste on public land will be removed within 2 to 5 working days, depending on its size, accessibility and waste type. By removing fly tipped waste we will not only be protecting our local environment, but we will be improving the quality of life for many residents and increasing pride in the community.

If you find some fly tipped waste, please be aware that some waste is dangerous – do not touch anything, including opening any black bags or containers.

It is important to remember that fly tippers are committing a crime and they do not want to be caught. Some fly tippers may become violent so do not approach them.

To report a fly tip please contact TVBC Customer Services 0n 01264 368000 or use the online form on the TVBC website and please include as much information as you can.

 

Black Swan Pub

The Black Swan pub re-opens tonight with villagers being welcomed for a drink by new landlords, Michael and Rosie. It is good news that the village will once again be able to gather to enjoy good company, drink and food at the “Mucky Duck”.
