Have Your Say, Household Waste Recycling Sites -
A public consultation is running from Monday, May 16 to Sunday, June 12
a package of five proposals have been put forward
Myles Cullen reports that the measure to 'Cease the Mobile Household Waste Recycling Service' would mean the loss of the weekly amenity facility at Marlpit Lane.

Posted
May 14
Other proposed measures are - Reduce daily opening hours at all sites. - Reduce the number of days some Household Waste Recycling Sites open each week. - Introduce charges for non-household waste disposal (e.g soil, hardcore, DIY, plasterboard, car and van tyres) and refuse commercial type tyres (LGV, tractor and mobile plant tyres) - Restrict trailers to those sites with ‘Large Vehicle Bays’ only. You can have your say (May 16 - June 12) here.

Go to Page 2 for Chidham and Hambrook news you may have missed
Spoof News section

(or why you should not believe everything you read on the internet)
What is this word spoof? It has been defined as
1 Nonsense; tomfoolery.
2 A hoax.
3 A gentle satirical imitation; a light parody.
4 The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
But which is it? Tricky, huh?
If you have a Spoof News Scoop, please send it to us, and we will do our best to include it today, tomorrow, sometime or ......well it depends on our lawyers, who we pay handsomely for their 'I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole' advice.

Spoof news
Currently there is not a lot of spoof news. Sometimes there just isn't any news, but it doesn't stop the BBC from filling a half hour slot with no news and repeating the 'no news' every hour on the hour. Here at Chidham and Hambrook, we tell it like it is.
However, we promise that just as soon as one of us gets round to writing some news, we will let you have it, up to the minute, just as its breaking, raw, unvarnished, cliche free, and without any attempt to hide the earth shattering implications for the local community.
Disappointed?
Have a look at the spoof news archive
This is your website. Let us know what you like and what we should bin.
