request the public to use on line reporting of non-emergency
As the summer months
are the busiest time of year the demand on the 999 service increases,
meaning that 101 call handlers have to support the 999 service
resulting in longer than average wait times for the 101 service to be
In order to ease the
burden on the 101 service, Hampshire Police are requesting that
members of the public use the on-line reporting tool at
where you can report under the following categories:
- Anti-social behaviour
- Civil disputes
- Lost or found property
- Lost or stolen vehicles
- Missing person
- Road traffic incident
This is not a
substitute for 999 which will always be prioritised.
Hampshire Police are
encouraging the public and other public sector agencies to think very
carefully about whether the police are the right service to call
before phoning 101 – please check out our useful telephone numbers

The annual ragwort pull will be Wednesday 17 July at NT Rockford Common car park. This is organised by the National Trust so look out for their vehicles and staff.
You can get good quality considered information about Ragwort here: https://www.buglife.org.uk/sites/default/files/Ragwort.pdf
There is a great deal of misinformation about Ragwort online and verbally – beware.
On the Parish Council property the intention is to deal with the open, Common areas and PC verges. Please try to leave plants with caterpillars and eggs for the butterflies to complete their life-cycle and remember not to pull Ragwort on land owned privately without permission. We are not trying to exterminate Ragwort but to restrict it to manageable quantities where insect populations benefit from its presence and the threat to stock and agriculture is minimal.
10am start, we ask people to bring a pair of gloves and a garden fork if possible.
