Fireworks Cancelled

The Parish Council has made the difficult decision not to hold a Fireworks event this year. We spent considerable time trying to organise the event.

Rooksdown Firework event was designed for the benefit of the Rooksdown community and its’ residents.

However, putting on such a popular event brings with it significant organisational & logistical challenges ... particularly, how to get residents and visitors in and out of Rooksdown safely (which has been illustrated in the comments in this Facebook thread already). There was also a distinct lack of any volunteers from the community to help make this a safe and enjoyable event for all.

The Parish Council realises this will be a huge disappointment to residents but would like to thank residents for their continued support.  

COUNCILLOR VACANCIES

Rooksdown Parish Council has three vacancies for Parish Councillors which the Council is planning to fill by co-option.

The procedure for co-opting a parish councillor is that any person interested should give their names to the Parish Clerk, Karen Ross or their names can be submitted on their behalf by existing Councillors.

All such persons should request an application form from the clerk and submit it to the Parish Clerk by 19th September 2016 either by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by post to PO Box 6949, Basingstoke, Hants, RG24 4WJ

Councillors need to be available to attend the Parish Meeting on 26th September 2016.
