Flooding Survey

After the heavy rainfall yesterday Hart DC are encouraging residents to fill out the flooding survey found here. Hart DC have advised us that every survey helps provide evidence needed to justify investment in flood alleviation works in the area, and any photos that can be provided are also very useful.



The Peace Garden

Please be advised that OPC is paying a contractor to water the Peace Garden and this frequency has just been increased. OPC has been advised that it is quite usual to expert some new plantings to not survive.  We are however going to be using some fertiliser to assist the new plantings.

Celebrating Carers through art

Hampshire Cultural Trust are running a series of workshops for ADULT carers – at the end of the course they will then have some art they can submit for the competition.  All sessions are free and materials are provided.  There are 3 sessions and the expectation is that carers must attend all three.

The workshops are to be held at the West End Centre in Aldershot and are open to all carers in our Clinical Commissioning Group geographical area, this includes Aldershot, Farnborough, Fleet, Yateley and Farnham.

In addition, there are other ways that carers can be supported to undertake their art, please visit the website and look under “Help with your artwork”:



Spring Newsletter

Our Spring newsletter has been distributed this week. Do let us know if you have not received a copy.

OPC has taken on board previous comments from residents and this edition has been distributed in biodegradable packaging which we hope you will see as a step forward.

Basic Resuscitation Training from Odiham Consolidated Charities

Cardiac Arrest : What to do next

Basic Resuscitation training to be held on Tuesday 18th June at Mayhill Junior School , The Bury, Odiham ; doors open 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

It is everyone’s worst nightmare when someone collapses in front of you and it appears they have stopped breathing. However, what you do in the next few minutes might save a life.

Resuscitation (CPR) and using a defibrillator sounds very difficult and technical but this is not the case, everyone can do it.

Odiham Consolidated Charities has funded a defibrillator which will be sited close to the entrance to Odiham Cottage Hospital and it is hoped that this training evening will give you the confidence to take the necessary steps which might make all the difference to someone in difficulty.

The training will be led by Iain Tunstell who is a South Central Ambulance First responder, based in Odiham.

Tea and coffee will be provided on arrival.

If you would like to attend the course, please call Bridget Munns on 01420 590660 or email her at .
