Recreation & Environment Committee
Cllrs Andy Sprott (Chair), Russell Gordon-Smith (Vice Chair), Ann Bean, Michael Byrne, Sarah Cavell, Barbara Jeffs, Jay Jones
The Committee meets every two months and is responsible for recreation, sport and environmental issues in the town. It looks after all the parks and open spaces in Council ownership, Arlebury Park, Stratton Bates Recreation Ground, Sun Hill Recreation Ground, Memorial Gardens and the allotments at Spring Gardens. Responsibilities include grass cutting, tree planting and management, maintenance and development of the play areas and skatepark, park benches, litter picking and dog fouling amongst others.
Every recreational project undertaken by the committee has had the cooperation and support from Alresford sports clubs and the numerous organisations that use the facilities and we would like to thank them for their continued co-operation and assistance.
You can also view information about our local sports clubs.
The public are welcome and encouraged to attend the Committee meetings
The vast majority of Alresford’s allotment plots are much loved and well-worked by plot-holders. They are delightful and the result of years of improving work by a dedicated band of gardeners.
Like many towns Alresford has a long queue of residents patiently awaiting an available plot. Therefore it is imperative that existing plot holders regularly work and maintain their allotments. The committee is disappointed that this year it has had to write to a number of plot holders about the state of their plots and, in at least one case, spend public funds to restore a plot to a useable condition.
There is an identified need for more allotments and a new site in Alresford is proposed under the draft Local Plan
The Council employs the services of the lengthsman and we are allocated 5 days a year. The lengthsman can help with the clearance of overgrown footpaths, cutting back vegetation overhanging footpaths, strimming and general 'Village/Town upkeep'. If you know of any problem areas that need attention please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
