BLPC Parish Office
- Deputy Clerk (11th Sep 2017  09:19:12)

Please note that we are unable to answer calls in the the Parish Office. Whilst the line is active the phone is not ringing in the office.

Does this mean parishioners are unable to contact the Parish Office by telephone?

I assume someone in the Parish office has a mobile that people can call!

If you need to speak to the Parish Office just send them an email asking them to give you a ring.
I'm sure that's not a problem for people?

I could not actually believe my eyes when I read Dawn Hoskins' post. Her assumption and presumption that everyone has access to and uses the internet is at best astounding and at worse arrogant. I am in business where we do rely on the internet but I come into touch with people many of whom are elderly and disabled who do not have email and do not use the internet. We have to cater for their needs as well and we do so willingly. The very fact that one has to email their local Parish Council Office in order to request a phone call is outrageous and will effect some of the most needy and vulnerable in our society. How can the people who do not use email or have easy access to transport so that they can, in the absence of telephone contact, actually visit the office, make contact with the Parish Office. They rely on the telephone. Bramshott and Liphook Parish Council are the only Parish Council that I have ever heard of that cannot be reached by telephone albeit within opening hours. They are a public office which means that should be easily accessible to the public.

Penny - you clearly have an agenda here or a personal issue with the parish council

They made a simple post to state their phones were having trouble, a quite common business occurrence.

Your inexplicable rant against Dawn confirms my suspicion you are trolling the BLPC

I have been in villages without a Parish Office. I was actually in Tongham
which has quite a big population, it has no Parish Office to visit. The Police are also a public body, there is no Police Station in the area now, the closet one I think is Petersfield. I believe Greatham has no Parish office either? not sure about all local Parishes but certainly some do not.
The Wey Hill locality office is now closed? Also most people who go into the parish office are discussing things like the allotments, hedge cutting cutting, etc. The citizens advice office is now at the Milleneum Hall.
We will also soon be without a lot of libraries in the area. I believe Grayshott library is closed? That has a big population?

If the line is active I just wonder how much it would cost for a new phone?

Re: BLPC Parish Office
- Dawn Hoskins (13th Sep 2017  16:37:45)

There is no deliberate conspiracy - the phone has a fault on the line just as yours or mine can have. It will only take a few days for the engineers to fix. Up until this point, the doors have been open and the phones working as usual. The doors are still open, you can pop in or if you don't have access to an email - you can ask someone that does.
This is the Parish Council we are talking about - they do not offer any emergency services.No one is going to burn to death because their phone has a fault.
It was nice of them to let us know - they could have just said nothing. Maybe - given your strange and extreme overreaction that is what they will do if it ever happens again.

Are the phones working now Jill?

Re: BLPC Parish Office

Phone lines have now, finally, been fixed by BT. Thank you for your patience.

Re: BLPC Parish Office
- Dawn Hoskins (18th Sep 2017  17:50:27)

That's good going, it took us a lot longer than a week to get ours back up and running when we had a fault on the line.

It is unusual for people to telephone the parish office (or visit). I'm sure that the affected few will have been grateful for the information.
