“Report Your Local Flooding Issues”.

We have recently had some heavy rain downpours that have highlighted significant weaknesses in our village’s rainwater drainage systems. To avoid a repeat of the 2014 flooding problems it is important that we understand where these weaknesses are and, more importantly, alert the relevant authorities of their presence.
Could we therefore ask anyone who witnessed any recent actual or potential flooding issues to:
  • Allow us (Holybourne Village Association – HVA) to collate this information by sending details (and photos if possible) via email to roblaw860@gmail.com.
  • Inform the relevant authorities of the same via the following website: https://www.hants.gov.uk/landplanningandenvironment/environment/flooding  This might seem a complicated website but it is important to report flooding issues to the correct authority. They collect and collate all reports that they receive and pay more attention to those with the highest number of complaints, effectively those who shout loudest come to the top of the list.
Many thanks for your help in keeping this issue visible to relevant authorities and help us, over time, improve the situation.

From East Hants Police

We are now in a position to confirm that the body found in Alice Holt Forest on Monday 31 August is that of 52-year-old Richard Morris.

Richard, from the Bentley area, was reported missing on Wednesday 6 May 2020.

Formal identification procedures have been completed. Richard’s family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

Paying tribute to him today his family said: “From childhood European holidays via a US university scholarship to Ambassador to Nepal, Richard loved to travel.

“Described as funny, kind and smart by his diplomatic colleagues, he worked for the FCO with professionalism and integrity for nearly 30 years.

“His empathy and kindness to those around him earned him respect wherever he went, evidenced by the messages of love, friendship and support we have received from all over the world.

“Richard was always a runner, cheerfully describing himself as "more of an enthusiastic weekend trail runner than podium finisher". Nevertheless he had completed five marathons on four continents, most recently in Nepal, where he raised money for Changing Faces - the UK charity of which he was a trustee.

“But above all else, Richard was a family man. A loving and loyal husband, father, son and brother. He showed us the world but he was our world and we are devastated by his loss.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the organisations and individuals who have supported us over the past few months.”

Hampshire Constabulary would like to thank all of those who have kept vigilant, helped in the search for Richard and assisted the investigation.
