  Have Your Say: Play Equipment

The Parish Council are planning to buy a new piece of play equipment for Couch Green. We are evaluating 5 pieces of equipment but sadly budgets mean we can only afford one new piece. We are also hoping to install a Zip Wire sometime in the next financial year, grants permitting.

We’d really love it if you would take the time to complete a short survey that will help inform our decision. The survey is open to children (6-7 years plus), parents and other relatives that use the facilities.Click here for the survey. You can either;

1.    Print out the document, complete it and return it to the address on the survey
2.    Request a hard copy of the survey document,by emailing yvetteriley@btinternet.com. Please include your address and the number required.
3.    Just send your scores for each piece of equipment back in an email to yvetteriley@btinternet.com.

      Closing Date 26 November 2014

Our Parish

Itchen Valley Parish Council is one of the largest Parish Councils in the Winchester District. It includes the villages of Avington, Easton, Itchen Abbas and Martyr Worthy and covers the area from Cheesefoot Head in the south to Shroner Wood in the north. Most of the Parish lies within the South Downs National Park. There are almost 1100 voters on the electoral roll.

The southern part of the Parish is in the East Hampshire Area of Outstanding National Beauty. The River Itchen flows through the centre of the Parish with Avington and Easton to the south and Itchen Abbas and Martyr Worthy to the north. There are four conservation areas and a number of Sites of Special Scientific Interest in the Parish. In addition, part of the River Itchen has been nominated as a Special Area of Conservation, a European Designation.
