Event Reminders for upcoming activities and deadlines
Event reminders for Parish Council election nominations, free dog microchipping, Police Beat Surgeries and changed refuse collection date
Friday 1 April 10:00 to 16:00 Dog Microchipping at Mole Country Store, Winnall
Did you know that your dog must be microchipped by law before 6 April this year according to the Microchipping of Dogs (England) Regulations 2015? Failure to comply could lead to a £500 fine.
You can go to a vet to have your pet microchipped, but why not come to Winchester City Council’s free session on April 1? The event will last from 10am to 2pm at Mole Country Stores, Easton Lane, Winnall, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 7RU. There’s no need to book; just turn up with your dog.
Wednesday 6 April 1pm Deadline for PC nomination papers
This year it’s particularly important, because three councillors have already said that they will not be standing for re-election in May.
The role is not particularly onerous.
Much of the business is done by email these days, so you can fit it around your other commitments.
If you are thinking of standing and want to find more, any of the current councillors would be happy to talk to you.
You’ll need to download and complete the forms in the nomination pack, and ask a proposer and seconder to add their signatures.
If you drop the completed forms off at the Parish Hall caretaker’s cottage by 1pm Wednesday 6 April, the clerk will take them along to the City Council for you.
