Your Parish Council have been running two surveillance cameras mounted on the wall of the Montagu Arms at the bottom of the high street. They are recording vehicle movements during the day and at night and are capable of recording vehicle registration numbers. The results of the recordings were shown at the last Parish Council Meeting and it was felt by most of the council that the cameras will greatly assist in keeping the Village safe. They are very discreetly mounted with the majority of villagers unaware of there presence.
If you are in doubt of the need for security cameras in our village we quote from the Lymington Times a Mr Justin Robinson on trial at Winchester Crown Court. Asked why he would target houses in Beaulieu, Robertson said: "It's posh, init. It's an earner. I've robbed the butchers there and the clothes shop on the High Street. It's got rich people only, really, who do not know how to protect things"

Hampshire Association of Local Councils
The ALC is working with partners to analyse the rural areas of Hampshire, in considering how we all can ensure in the future, that the last 4% of the population get a decent broadband service.
1. How many domiciles (housing and business units) are there within a mile of the centre of the community, or centre of the concentration of houses?
2. What is the current bandwidth achieved across the community?
- Less than 2 Megs
- Below 5 Megs
- Below 8 Megs
3. Is there a telephone exchange in the community?
4. Are there any business parks in the community?
The more information you can give us, the more compelling our argument with partners to BT will be, for communities not included in the BT programme, to be found a local solution.
