Beaulieu Commemorates the One Hundred Year Anniversary of the end of the First World War

poppy1The village of Beaulieu is commemorating the one hundred year anniversary of the end of the First World War with a stunning display of poppies in the Twinning Garden, situated in the High Street.

The Parish Council have arranged for the children at the Beaulieu poppy5Village Primary School to each make a poppy which are being planted in the Twinning Garden on Monday November 5th so that they will be in situ during the week leading up to Remembrance Day on Sunday November 11th

The children have made 109 poppies which are designed to turn the Twinning Garden into a Garden of Remembrance for the week and we hope will be a fitting tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. It will also have importantly involved local children who will have gained an understanding of the sacrifices made by previous generations. Twenty six of the poppies will have a plaque on them with the names of those who died during the First World War taken from the East Boldre and Beaulieu War Memorial. One poppy will be dedicated to ‘the fallen of Hautvillers’, the French village twinned with Beaulieu. The plaques have been beautifully written by the older children from the school who will then plant them in the Twinning Garden on Monday November 5th.

The Beauileu Twinning Association have very kindly sponsored the cost of making the poppies which has only been made possible by the hard work that Councillor Lindy Shanks has put into the project from designing the poppies to helping the children construct them.

New Forest Pony owners Plea to Drivers

#add3minutes to your journey for the winter

New Forest commoners and organisations are appealing to local drivers to slow down as the clocks go back, to prevent the usual huge rise in animal deaths and injuries in the longer nights.

Nearly 100 free-roaming animals were killed or injured in the New Forest last year.

A quarter of these – 25 animals - were killed or injured on just four key routes in the evenings in the two months after the clocks go back. About three quarters of the accidents involved local drivers. 

Now New Forest commoners, the families who own the animals that maintain the Forest, have teamed up with other organisations to focus efforts on reducing accidents this winter. They are asking locals to add just three minutes to their journeys and drive slowly across the Forest.
