Find That Bike
Hampshire Police Recommends www.findthatbike.co.uk. The site sends emails to the registered person to advice of any bike available on Ebay or Gumtree which matches specifics entered by the user (e.g. If a persons bike was stolen they can put in the details of their bike and if one is found on Ebay or Gumtree matching those details, they will be informed.)
It also includes a section where you can check for bike serial numbers (for those thinking of buying to check if stolen) and another where you can report stolen bikes.

Help needed to “bring alive” the history of Royal Victoria Country Park
Local residents can help uncover the heritage of Royal Victoria Country Park by coming forward with their memories of the site’s former military hospital.
Only the iconic chapel remains from the building which was once the world’s largest hospital, which was a personal project for Queen Victoria who laid its foundation stone.
Now, plans are underway to restore its historic buildings and uncover its hidden stories thanks to £2.68 million from Hampshire County Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The chapel is being renovated and visitors will in Spring/Summer 2017 be able to visit a new exhibition and take tours to the top of the chapel tower.
The grounds will have artistic interpretation and information boards that will give more information and demonstrate the size and length of the hospital through their positioning.
The project manager, Paul Del-A-More, who grew up in Hamble and still lives locally, is keen to hear from local residents who have any personal or family links to the former hospital to come forward to tell their story.
If you run a community group or similar and would like to know more about the project, Paul can also give presentations on the works to the chapel and the park. A number of volunteering opportunities are also available.
Please email email@example.com or call 01962 846040.
You can find out more about the project by visiting the park’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/RoyalVictoriaCP.
