Long Bredy Litter Pick 2017
We had a glorious day and a wonderful turn out for the annual Long Bredy Litter Pick on Saturday 24th March. They say ‘many hands make light work’, and indeed, our army of helpers whipped round the village in record time, collecting all manner of rubbish from the ditches and hedgerows of Long Bredy. At the end, a welcome cup of coffee and a wonderful array of savouries and cakes as a reward, and an opportunity to chat with friends and neighbours.
Thank you to everyone who took part in keeping our beautiful village looking its best. See you all next year!
The Village Hall Committee has a vacancy for a secretary. See Village Hall page for further details!
Long Bredy & Kingston Russell Parish Council
A vacancy has arisen on the Long Bredy & Kingston Russell Parish Council for a co-opted councillor.

If you think you would find this interesting and want to learn more contact, without obligation, the Parish Clerk, Steve Evans, on 01308 482647 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
105 is a new three-digit number that people can call to report or get information about power cuts. You can also call 105 with any welfare concerns related to a power cut, or if you are worried about the safety of over or underground electricity cables or substations. 105 is free of charge and will put you through to your electricity network operator. You can call 105 from most landlines and mobile phones.
Avian Influenza(A1) – Bird Flu
As you may have heard there has been a confirmed outbreak of Avian Influenza (AI) at Abbotsbury Swannery. There has been a national control zone covering the whole of the UK since December that requires poultry and other captive birds to be housed where practicable. The following link will take you to a fact sheet from the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs.
Superfast Broadband is coming to Long Bredy!
The new green cabinet serving Long Bredy residents with high speed broadband is situated near the entrance to Sands Farm. In the not too distant future this will go live. Please check https://www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/superfast for updates or register to be kept informed on progress.
Unfortunately, there are some residents within the parishes of Kingston Russell and Long Bredy who are not in any of the plans for superfast broadband . If you are one of these residents and are receiving less that 2Mbps, you might be eligible to apply for the Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme. This scheme provides residents with a subsidy towards the cost of installation of wireless or satellite broadband. You will be able to find more information about applying for the scheme on the website: https://www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/broadband/better-broadband-scheme.
Long Bredy Village Hall now has a table tennis table. The hope is to organise some games, and even coaching if we have enough participants of secondary school age and older. We are especially keen to persuade adult new-comers to give it a try!
Please contact email@example.com so that we can organise a time to meet.
