Lights Out for WW1 commemoration - Monday 4 August
Chairman Cllr Maureen Holding will be attending a service and 'Lights Out' vigil in Winchester on behalf of the council, staff and residents of the New Forest to mark 100 years since Britain entered the First World War. Everyone is invited to take part in 'Lights Out' - a shared moment of reflection across the country.
The way we all register to vote is changing
The way you register to vote is changing across the UK. Most electors will transfer to the new electoral register automatically, but some residents may need to take action to join the new register, even if they were registered in the past.
We will be writing to local residents to tell them whether they have transferred to the new register or if they need to take further action. You could be one who needs to re-register so it is important that you look out for a letter towards the end of July that will tell you if action is needed.
