Lane End Closure Update – IT’S OPEN!

UPDATE 2:00pm Wednesday: The road has now been fully reopened.

UPDATE 12:00pm Wednesday: They’re working on repairing the surface at the moment. The road should reopen later today.

UPDATE 12:00pm Tuesday: Lane End still closed, the leak has been repaired but the road surface needs reinstating.


As of 9pm Monday Lane End is still closed in both directions, so expect some disruption on Tuesday.

The good news is there seems to be a lot less water about. Sorry, John Tid, your free irrigation is over.


Easter Monday Emergency Road Closure at Lane End

Owing to a burst water main Lane End has been closed in both directions.

The road remains open to cyclists and pedestrians, but vehicles entering Hambledon from the A283 are being diverted via Milford and vehicles coming through Hambledon heading towards the A283 are being diverted down The Cricket Green, past the shop and along Vann Lane.

There is currently no indication as to how long the road closure will be in place.

The shop is open as normal (until 4pm).

New community venture -The Garden House

We would like to update you on progress at The Garden House in Hydestile.  We have been developing the project for around 4 years and the estate is now looking very different.  For those of you who pass by on Hambledon Road, you may have noticed a large pond and new planting.  We are now better placed to spread the word about the project and would like to let people know what it is that we are doing.   We would like to invite you to think about how The Garden House estate can be used by either you or people that you may know who could benefit from the resource that we are creating.Screen Shot 2017-04-10 at 13.06.22 Continue reading
