May I take this opportunity to thank the many individuals from the community who assisted in the planning, and on the day, of Remembrance Sunday.  It does not just happen and the early planning commences in September. So we have a bit of a long lead into the day.  Everything worked out well.  I was really pleased with the Bowers Hill service on the 11th.  The children from Morgan’s Vale School played centre on that day.  How wonderful they were, complete with their own home made memorial. Thank you. Below is one of many photographs taken after church at St Birinus. Branch members pose with the Branch standard.

A Call for Ideas and Volunteers!

The Nation will be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee over the long holiday “weekend” from Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June 2022. There will be national, regional and local events taking place. Redlynch Parish Council and other local groups are beginning to develop ideas for local celebrations. We are looking for ideas and volunteers prepared to help and deliver local events. If you are interested please send your contact details along with any suggestions to We will form a steering group to help coordinate a programme of activities and to keep the Parish informed.

We are excited to announce we are back in time to supply lots of goodies for Christmas, birthdays or simply so you can spoil yourselves.

New Forest Aromatics are offering a delivery service so if you wish to send candles or ‘Bath and Body’ treats (or both) as gifts or want anything delivered to your door please have a look. The delivery side of the shop is a whole new set up for us and all feedback will be very welcome.

Lizzie from New Forest Chocolate has put together two different sized hampers for us to sell.  These will make brilliant gifts so hoping they might tempt you… She’s also added a cute Rudolph chocolate bar and a snowflake bar to her range.

Re-Dedication of Royal British Legion Benches at Redlynch Playing Fields
Recently the two RBL memorial benches at Redlynch Playing Fields were re-dedicated with a simple service at the playing fields.  The reason for the re-dedication was due to the benches having to be removed to a new location. The service was conducted by the Rev Len Lunn who is the RBL Branch Chaplain.  Also in attendance was the Parish Council Chairperson Jo Horbury.  Donald Anderson was also in attendance as RBL Branch President.  One of the benches is dedicated to his father Major Nigel Anderson MC.  The Military Cross being won during action in Norway. The move was necessary due to an upgrade of the play area taking place.  Who could argue with this, as a new cable slide for the children was being installed. The benches were moved into the central area of the play zone and as such are now more in use with family gatherings.  The cable slide has proved highly popular with the community children and one or two grown up children!!
