By Local Democracy Reporting Service in News on November 9, 2020

Recycling centres across Hampshire will remain open during lockdown but a number of other facilities will close.

Civic chiefs have confirmed that the recycling centres across the county will remain open over the next four weeks but residents will have to book an appointment.

Country parks in Hampshire will also remain open and normal opening hours and parking charges will apply.

However, indoor areas such as country park visitor centres and shops will close and park cafés will operate takeaway services only.

Toilet facilities at Queen Elizabeth, Lepe, Staunton, River Hamble and Royal Victoria country parks will remain open while the Chapel at Royal Victoria Country Park will be closed.

Tile Barn Outdoor Centre in the New Forest and Runway’s End Outdoor Centre near Farnborough will also be closed.

Cllr Sean Woodward, executive member for recreation and heritage at Hampshire County Council, said: “At our Calshot Activities Centre, which is located on the Solent, indoor recreational activities will be paused from 5 November and the campsite will be closed. The slipways and car park will remain open for recreational boating and normal car parking charges will apply.”

County libraries will continue to run the Ready Reads click and collect service and make reservations to request and collect physical items but browsing in libraries will be temporarily suspended.

All library cafés and toilet facilities will be closed, fines for late return of books will be frozen and magazines will not be available to loan.
