Fleet Lions Charity Walk

by Marcel Attard

Sunday 22 August 2021 dawned nice and bright as members of the Lions Club of Fleet started preparations for their inaugural Charity Walk at Naishes Wood SANG in Church Crookham. The purpose of rite walk was to encourage people in Fleet, Church Crookham and Ewshot to explore their local natural green space and hopefully make more use of it to enhance both physical and mental wellbeing, as well as to raise funds for charity. Three walking routes were offered to cater for various needs, with lengths of 1.5 km, 3.5 km and 7 km. The routes were well signposted and route marshals were on hand at various points to ensure the walkers followed the correct route. The first walkers started arriving at the starting point, the Allot-ments/Men’s Shed car park in Church Crookham, at 10 am, with a steady stream turning up until the last group departed at 12.15 pm. Walkers were given wildlife-spotting sheets to record any animals, birds, in-sects and plants (and even World War II pillboxes!) they saw on the walk. On their return, each walker was presented with a medal by Lisa Rust, President of Fleet Lions, in recognition of their achievement. All the walkers returned safely to the starting point and there were no safety incidents before, during or after the walk.

In total, 97 walkers took part, and £403 were raised in contributions towards Fleet Lions charity projects. The feedback from the participants was overwhelmingly positive, and it is hoped to repeat the event next year.

More information on Fleet Lions and the good work they do in the local community can be found on their website: www.fleetlions.org.uk.

London to Southampton Pipeline

Esso Petroleum Company Limited are proposing to replace 90km of the underground aviation fuel pipeline that runs from the Fawley Refinery near Southampton to the West London Terminal storage facility in Hounslow. 

The current pipeline and the proposed route for the new pipeline will pass through the Village. For full details see the Project website.

In November 2020 the Parish Council was advised that permission had been received from the UK Government for the replacement pipeline to be installed. It was anticipated that early works would start late in 2021 and the main pipeline installation would take place from 2022.
