Public Information

Household Glass Collections for East Boldre to Start January 2014.

Glass bottles and jars can be recycled over and over again and play an important part in helping to reduce our use of natural resources, whilst also saving energy and money.

The new service has been very well received in Totton, Ringwood and Fordingbridge. Boxes and information packs will be delivered to households in East Boldre during January, ready for collections to start in February. The boxes will be collected once every four weeks and can be used to recycle all glass bottles and jars.

New Forest Batbox Project

The Hampshire Bat Group (HBG) embarked on a survey of the bats in the New Forest in 2006. A particular focus for the project was to establish the distribution of two rare species; Bechstein's bat Myotis bechsteinii and barbastelle bat Barbastella barbastellus; about which very little was known at the time.

The HBG are particularly keen to look for signs of some of these rare species in old timber framed barns and private woodlands which are not pony grazed. If you think you have bats roosting in your loft we would also like to hear from you.

Read more about the HBG and bats in the New Forest here.

Eat out with confidence in the New Forest this summer

New Forest cafes, restaurants, hotels and pubs are proudly displaying a 'badge of honour' this summer to encourage more people to come dine with them.

Food hygiene ratings are available for 1100 hospitality businesses in the New Forest to reassure customers that they can enjoy their meals with peace of mind.

Environmental health officers from New Forest District Council inspect the cleanliness and safety of all food businesses in the district under the national Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.

While 5 is the highest rating, you can eat with confidence in establishments with a 3 rating. With 960 businesses in the New Forest rated as 3 or more, there is plenty of choice.

Visitors and residents can view a business's food hygiene rating when choosing where to eat or shop by checking the food hygiene rating sticker in the window, the certificate on display inside the premises or by going online at A mobile app is also available to download from the Food Standards Agency.
