PARISH COUNCIL BY-ELECTION THURSDAY 21ST AUGUST.
Please find below a few words written by each of the candidates.
My name is Kelvin Fay and I am standing as acandidate for election to the Hartley Wintney Parish Council in the forthcoming election.
After 35 years working for a large corporate, I took early retirement and my partner and I started our business here in the High Street in 2011. In 2012, we bought a house in the village. For my partner Sue, it was a return to the place she had lived in since the early 1980's. I support several organisations in the village,particularly Hartley Arts group.
I am heavily involved in the Dementia Awareness Campaign with the village retailers and will be involved with training retail staff within Hartley Wintney Parish.
I am concerned about development in the village and whilst I appreciate it brings prosperity, I feel it needs to be carefully controlled and monitored.
I am also concerned about traffic speed along our stretch of the A30 and road safety for the local children and our elderly residents.
I hope I can count on your vote on August 21st.
I returned to this historic and delightful village over three years ago, after many years absence. I previously brought up three children who are now grown up, one of whom lives in Yateley and has recently been elected on to the town council.

This is achieved in a variety of ways including monitoring services carried out by District and County Councils, representing views of parishioners to other authorities, supporting and liaising with local clubs and organisations, protecting and enhancing its environment, sustaining and developing community spirit, recognising parishioners and volunteers who contribute to the fabric of the village and promoting local businesses and services.

With a population of approximately 5000 people, the Parish includes Phoenix Green to the south and the adjoining hamlets of Dipley, West Green, Elvetham and Hartfordbridge. The Parish includes large wooded areas such as Yateley Heath Wood and part of Hazeley Heath as well as large expanses of common land with the famous Mildmay Oaks at its centre. The River Hart flows to the north-east of the village with the River Whitewater forming the western parish boundary.
The village is twinned with Saint-Savin near Poitiers, France and with Malle, famous for its Trappist beer, near Antwerp in Belgium.
