News & Events January 2020

The year started with both good and disappointing news for Emsworth.
There was cause to celebrate when it was announced that our doctor's Surgery would be relocated to a refurbished the vacant Victoria Cottage Hospital site:


New life will be breathed into the former hospital shut for more than six years when it is converted into a new £4m GP surgery.  Campaigners have told of their delight that work at Victoria Cottage Hospital in Emsworth, decommissioned in April 2013, will start this year.  Find out more HERE.


Less welcome was the news that Emsworth Library was one of ten in Hampshire earmarked for closure as part of a cost cutting exercise by Hampshire County Council as it tries to cut £80m from its budget by 2021.


consultation on the proposals will continue until Wednesday 18th March.  A detailed information pack can be found HERE and a printable response form HERE.  Read the full story HERE

It was being ‘heeled’ for repairs to the water cock and also loaded with provisions when it began to take in water.
