White House Stores

 

White House Stores closed down in December 2011.   Following a public meeting on July 23rd 2012 it was decided to try and buy the freehold for the community of the three villages of Neatishead, Irstead and Barton Turf . An Industrial and Provident Society was formed and a share issue made.  Generous funding from The Victory Housing Trust and The Plunkett Foundation, along with an enthusiastic uptake of shares made the dream of the community owning the shop a reality and the shop became ours on December 5th 2012.  The shop then had extensive renovations carried out to repair water damage caused by a burst pipe in January 2012.
We were delighted that the Big Lottery Village SOS awarded us £42,400 to refit the shop and help towards the set up costs for the first year of trading.
The shop was re-opened on March 9th, with our local MP, Norman Lamb doing the ribbon cutting honours.  We look forward to a happy and successful future.

Neatishead Staithe

Neatishead Staithe is near the end of Lime Kiln Dyke and offers the benefit of free mooring for 24 hours.  There is a water fill-up available for a charge of £1.50 and there are also disposal bins for the use of boat users who are moored there.  We provide recycling facilities at the Staithe.  It is a short stroll into the village with its shop and pub.  You can fish from your boat or from the Staithe providing you do not prevent boats from mooring or manoeuvring.  The coarse fishing season is closed from 15 March to 15 June each year and you may not fish during this period.  Click here to access the Environment Agency information about National and Regional byelaws and click here to buy your fishing licence online.

NVH Wheelchair Access

Neatishead and Barton and Irstead Parish Councils were approached by the committee of the New Victory Hall with a view to the councils funding a wheelchair access path across the New Victory Hall car park.  Barton and Irstead Parish Council suggested that Neatishead Council should be the leader of the project as it was decided that the path would also cross Neatishead Parish Car Park as well.  As the cost was well in excess of funds available, Neatishead Parish Council decided to apply for a grant from the National Lottery Big Fund and in August 2010 had the news that they had been successful in their application for a grant of £2251 to install a pathway across both car parks.

Neatishead Parish Council are using Bodpave85 for the access pathway, which is DDA approved .  To find out more about this product visit their website at http://www.boddingtons-ltd.com/civil/grass-paver-grid.htm
