A message from Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Seán Woodward awarded “Fields in Trust” status from the Queen Elizabeth II Field Challenge. They are Wicor Recreation Ground (Portchester), Allotment Road Recreation Ground (Sarisbury), Seafield Park Recreation Ground (Hill Head) and Bath Lane Recreation Ground (Fareham). Having “Fields in Trust” status will provide the grounds with permanent protection so that they can be used for sport, play and recreation by future generations.

We start this very special year of celebrations with a Freedom March on Tuesday 20 March to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Around 140 members of HMS Collingwood will march through West Street as they exercise their right as ‘Freeman of the Borough’ with “bayonets fixed and flags a flying”; led by the Royal Marines band, also from HMS Collingwood. To make the occasion even more memorable, I am delighted to announce that Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal will be attending this event, and opening the new Diamond Jubilee Play Area in West Street, in the presence of Dame Mary Fagan DCVO, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire, and the Mayor of Fareham, Councillor Trevor Cartwright. More details will be available on www. fareham.gov.uk, Twitter and the Fareham Facebook page on 13 March. As a permanent reminder of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, I am delighted that four of the recreation grounds in Fareham have been

During 2012 we not only celebrate Queen Elizabeth II becoming the only British monarch apart from Queen Victoria to reach over 60 years on the throne but also the Olympics coming to Britain for the first time since 1948. We will be commemorating these events along with the 30th Anniversary of the Falklands conflict. As always if there are any matters you would like to bring to my attention or suggestions you may have to improve the Borough we all share then I will be very pleased to receive them. I promise that all suggestions will be thoroughly considered.

Celebrating the Queens’s Diamond Jubilee

Royal Visit

Recreation Ground (Hill Head) and Bath Lane Recreation Ground (Fareham)

On Tuesday 20 March, HRH The Princess Royal will be visiting Fareham for a special Freedom March to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. During her visit, The Princess Royal will also officially open the newly upgraded Jubilee Play Area (event times will be announced on our Twitter, Facebook pages and www.fareham.gov.uk on 13 March)

In June the whole country will be joining together to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. ‘Have a Field Day’ celebrations are currently being planned at Seafield Park Recreation Ground, Allotment Road Recreation Ground, Bath Lane Recreation Ground and Wicor Recreation Ground. They will provide the ideal setting to celebrate in the great outdoors, with cream teas, inflatable’s, traditional games, football and cricket activities; plus the opportunity to get creative with the Fareham Play Rangers and make Jubilee souvenirs.

Last autumn children and young people who took part in a ‘Jubilee Joy’ consultation, suggested that the play area in West Street Fareham be themed ‘Kings and Queens’ as a commemoration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, they also told us what they’d like the play area to include and look like. The play area now includes a castle tower, a kings and queens entrance arch, a unicorn slide, and other themed pieces of play equipment.

For more information about these events please contact the Leisure and Community Team on 01329 236100 or look out for the latest event information at www.fareham. gov.uk/fareham2012

Queen Elizabeth II Playing Fields The Queen Elizabeth II Field Challenge, launched last year, is headed by its Patron, The Duke of Cambridge. The aim is to protect 2012 outdoor recreational spaces in communities all across the country as a permanent living legacy of the landmark occasion and to ensure our green spaces and playing fields are protected for future generations. We were the first local authority in Hampshire to secure Queen Elizabeth II Playing Fields status for four of our recreation grounds; Wicor Recreation Ground (Portchester), Allotment Road Recreation Ground (Sarisbury), Seafield Park

Youth Counc i l In December Fareham Youth Council held their AGM, which was attended by local decision makers from Fareham Borough Council, Hampshire County Council (Youth Service), Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire Fire and Rescue and representatives from local schools.

The AGM was an excellent platform for The Youth Council to reflect on their past achievements and raise awareness on the work they have planned for the coming year. The main priority for 2012 is “building local communities”. This includes working with the team responsible for the new community North of Fareham, representing Young People on the Community Safety Partnership, and continuing to work with the Local Children’s Partnership. The Youth Council also said they would

like to challenge stereotypes and barriers between groups such as old and young people. The members of the Youth Council also took the opportunity to put the decision makers on the spot, by asking them questions regarding the local area and matters that concern young people in Fareham. If you’d like to find out more about what Fareham Youth Council do or want to join them please come along to one of their meetings, held every first Wednesday of the month from 4pm – 5.45pm at the Civic offices in Fareham or email: yc@fareham.gov.uk

Your opinions are really valuable and FYC want to hear them. They believe their new facebook page will really help to raise the voices of young people within the Borough so look them up and give them ‘a like’!

Portchester Community Centre Work on the new Portchester Community Centre (due to open this autumn) began in early February at a special sod cutting ceremony, attended by Councillors, Trustees of Portchester Community Association and user groups.

Work on the Westlands Grove site is scheduled for completion in October. Once the new community centre has been completed, the old building (located next to the new building) which has fallen into disrepair will be demolished and the site landscaped within 12 weeks. The budget for the new community centre is £2M and is being jointly funded by Fareham Borough Council and Hampshire County Council.

• £600,000: from the sale of the land to Hampshire County Council (which is being leaseback to Fareham Borough Council) • £400,000: grant from Hampshire County Council (to fund the provision of a new Children’s Centre) • £1M: An interest free loan from Hampshire City Country which will be paid back over the next five years

The new community centre is an excellent result of partnership working between Fareham Borough Council and Hampshire County Council.

The personal information you provide will be treated with the strictest confidence and held for a period of no more than five years for the purpose of these activities, promotion of related events and the mailing of associated material. Should you not wish to receive such information, then please tick here

The new centre will be a fantastic facility for the people of Portchester and will include a new children’s centre, provision for a pre-school, a large multi- purpose hall, meeting rooms and a kitchen.

Youth Counc i l In December Fareham Youth Council held their AGM, which was attended by local decision makers from Fareham Borough Council, Hampshire County Council (Youth Service), Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire Fire and Rescue and representatives from local schools.

The AGM was an excellent platform for The Youth Council to reflect on their past achievements and raise awareness on the work they have planned for the coming year. The main priority for 2012 is “building local communities”. This includes working with the team responsible for the new community North of Fareham, representing Young People on the Community Safety Partnership, and continuing to work with the Local Children’s Partnership. The Youth Council also said they would

like to challenge stereotypes and barriers between groups such as old and young people. The members of the Youth Council also took the opportunity to put the decision makers on the spot, by asking them questions regarding the local area and matters that concern young people in Fareham. If you’d like to find out more about what Fareham Youth Council do or want to join them please come along to one of their meetings, held every first Wednesday of the month from 4pm – 5.45pm at the Civic offices in Fareham or email: yc@fareham.gov.uk

Your opinions are really valuable and FYC want to hear them. They believe their new facebook page will really help to raise the voices of young people within the Borough so look them up and give them ‘a like’!

Portchester Community Centre Work on the new Portchester Community Centre (due to open this autumn) began in early February at a special sod cutting ceremony, attended by Councillors, Trustees of Portchester Community Association and user groups.

Work on the Westlands Grove site is scheduled for completion in October. Once the new community centre has been completed, the old building (located next to the new building) which has fallen into disrepair will be demolished and the site landscaped within 12 weeks. The budget for the new community centre is £2M and is being jointly funded by Fareham Borough Council and Hampshire County Council.

• £600,000: from the sale of the land to Hampshire County Council (which is being leaseback to Fareham Borough Council) • £400,000: grant from Hampshire County Council (to fund the provision of a new Children’s Centre) • £1M: An interest free loan from Hampshire City Country which will be paid back over the next five years

The new community centre is an excellent result of partnership working between Fareham Borough Council and Hampshire County Council.

The personal information you provide will be treated with the strictest confidence and held for a period of no more than five years for the purpose of these activities, promotion of related events and the mailing of associated material. Should you not wish to receive such information, then please tick here

The new centre will be a fantastic facility for the people of Portchester and will include a new children’s centre, provision for a pre-school, a large multi- purpose hall, meeting rooms and a kitchen.

A day in the life of...

an Air Quality Officer, by Heather Cusack (HC) and Richard Gustar (RG) In Environmental Health part of the work we’re required to do involves the monitoring, assessment and review of air quality throughout the Borough. We assess nitrogen dioxide emissions from traffic and declare areas of poor air quality where EU limits are exceeded. Today’s a monitoring day:

08:30 (HC): I’m arranging to install a new continuous nitrogen dioxide monitor in one of our areas of poor air quality known as the Portland Street Air Quality Management Area (AQMA). I contact the air quality consultant who’s supplying the equipment to discuss the exact location of the unit and its electricity supply. 09:00 (RG+HC): We discuss the air quality map for Portland Street and how the air quality results are displayed on our website at: www. fareham.gov.uk/council/departments/ healthcommunity/noxmon.aspx 09:30 (RG): I contact a member of the public who had emailed the previous day regarding air quality near their home. I give them information and advice, and discuss the possibility of providing a monitoring tube at their

10

home as they are close to the M27 and we do not have a tube in the vicinity. 09:45 (RG): I collect the nitrogen dioxide monitoring tubes (stored in the fridge) and the equipment to change them. Tube changing is undertaken on a monthly basis and are located on lamp posts and house fronts close to roads. I go to the first location, in Portchester. I’ll travel to over 40 locations today including Park Gate, Titchfield, Stubbington and Fareham. 10:00 (HC): I’ve received the draft of the latest annual air quality progress report which we have to submit to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs by the end of April each year. I check the report and email the consultant as I’m concerned that one new tube is showing as exceeding the EU limit for nitrogen dioxide. 11:00 (HC): As we’ve declared two AQMAs for the Gosport Road and Portland Street in Fareham, we have an Air Quality Action Pan (AQAP) to try to reduce pollution levels in these areas. I write up the minutes of the last AQAP steering group (led by Councillor Arthur Mandry) and send them out to our partners including Hampshire County Council and Gosport Borough Council. 12:30 (RG): I arrive at the continuous nitrogen dioxide monitor located within the Gosport Road AQMA. I change the filter and check the electricity meter reading. I also change the three monitoring tubes on the continuous monitor. These are used to check the accuracy of all the tubes in the Borough. 13:30 (RG): I visit a house to install a new tube on a downpipe on their property as the latest air report indicates that there might be an air quality issue in this area. 14:30 (RG): Having finished changing the tubes in Fareham town centre, I return to the office and complete the paperwork to send off to the

laboratory with the collected tubes for determination of the average monthly nitrogen dioxide concentration in the air at the location of each tube. I check the tube results from the previous month and arrange for some of these to be shown on a graph on our website, together with the ‘real time information’ from the continuous monitor. 15:00 (HC): I check a draft leaflet and poster that’s to be used for the Big Green Commuter Challenge 2012 (from 14 - 20 May) - a friendly competition between local businesses and organisations, based on the number of car miles saved by employess swapping their car for thez bus, walking, cycling, etc. 17:30 (RG + HC): Although finished at the office for the day, our other roles in Environmental Health have us ‘on call’ tonight for the out of hours service. HC for noise nuisance and RG for stray dogs. If you would like any further information on air quality in the Borough please contact the pollution section on 01329 236100 or refer to the air quality pages on the Council’s website at: www.fareham. gov.uk/council/departments/ healthcommunity/airqual.aspx

A bus for all reasons How the new Eclipse busway could help ease your travel headaches Opening at the end of April, the new Eclipse Bus Rapid Transit busway between Fareham and Gosport offers a comfortable, cost-effective way to beat traffic congestion on the A32. There’s been a lot of buzz about the new Eclipse BRT busway since construction started on the disused railway line in late 2010. Now the corridor, which will be open for use by buses, cycles and emergency vehicles only, is due to open and here’s what it promises for people who live in Fareham. First, the bus services. The plush, new, high-spec Eclipse buses with their leather seats, wood-effect floors and free Wi-Fi will run on two of the existing routes on the peninsula. Currently known as the 86 and 82, the renamed E1 and E2 services will continue to serve their present routes, departing from Fareham bus station and then serving the railway station, before diverting onto the new, dedicated busway at Redlands Lane. With no other traffic on the busway, journeys will be fast, predictable and reliable –not a claim that can be made for travel along the A32, particularly at peak times. Once they leave the busway, buses continue on to Gosport town centre, terminating at the bus station and ferry terminal; special traffic signals will ensure that they have priority onto the A32. This kind of reliability is expected to appeal to commuters in particular, because it means that they can accurately plan their journey to work, synchronising with onward connections. Get on board Using Eclipse buses is as simple as using any other bus service. They’re easy to spot – the distinctive purple and gold Eclipse livery helps mark them out as something a little bit special. These buses will serve the wider Gosport peninsula, and you can catch one from any of the 134 refurbished stops on the wider network – look out for Eclipse-branded bus stop flags. You’ll also find clearly marked areas at both Fareham and Gosport bus stations that indicate Eclipse departure bays. And if you live near the dedicated busway itself, you can catch your Eclipse bus from one of 14 stops along the new route. Once on board, you can stay on schedule with real-time bus arrival information screens which will provide live travel information and the name of the next stop, so you know where to alight from the bus. Travel information will also be displayed in the shelters along the busway, and on information pillars at major stops on the peninsula – including the rail and bus stations. And because reliable travel information is key to the appeal of a bus rapid transit system, real-time travel data is easily accessible on the move. The Eclipse website,

12

Fareham Today Spring 2012

www.eclipsebus.co.uk, includes an interactive route map where you can select your stop and see arrivals details for the next four buses. Smartphone users will be able to download a special app to have this information sent straight to their handset (details will be available soon – check the website or ask when you use the Eclipse buses), or they can scan the QR codes displayed at any Eclipse bus stop and go straight to the real-time details for that stop. So how much will all this cost? It might surprise you to learn that fares will be the same as those currently charged – so although you can expect a lot more from the Eclipse experience, you won’t have to pay any more. There’s a choice of ticketing, too: you can buy online at www. firstgroup.com or pay on board as usual. And to mark the launch of Eclipse, First is introducing a new Fareham and Gosport area ticket, which enables unlimited travel on the peninsula – so you won’t have to pay more for a season ticket covering the whole of Hampshire if most of your journeys are local.

Why here, why now? With increasing congestion on our roads, the rising cost of motoring and the need to reduce emissions to protect the environment, the idea behind Eclipse is to persuade more people to travel by bus. Bus rapid transit is being adopted all over the world by transport providers keen to offer people a viable alternative to the private car. And while buses haven’t always had a particularly positive image, BRT aims to address some of people’s key concerns, improving the experience so that it is comparable to train travel. Hampshire County Council constructed the 3.4km dedicated busway on the former disused railway line running parallel to the A32, financing it with £20m from the Government’s communities infrastructure fund and £4m from the authority’s capital programme. With ambitious regeneration plans for the peninsula, it has long been recognised that a robust public transport infrastructure is desperately needed – particularly if new investment is to be attracted from incoming businesses. We need to ensure that people have better transport choices that enable them to travel to areas of employment and education. The new Eclipse busway is the first phase in a much wider BRT infrastructure that will link key towns and destinations in south east Hampshire.

To celebrate 30 Years, Ferneham Hall has joined together with Fareham Today to offer one lucky winner four FREE tickets to see the Chinese State Circus between 26-28 April, featuring the first UK appearance of the formidable Shaolin Warrior known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Oneâ&#x20AC;?. The production will not only keep the audience on the edge of their seats but show the more delicate and beautiful side of Chinese tradition with an silk aerial act, parasol juggling as well as an eye catching Lion Dance.
