Mosbach & Lymington's 20 Years of Friendship
Lymington International Twinning Society and the Town Mayor planted a tree on Wednesday 16 November 2016 to mark twenty years of friendship enjoyed between Lymington and Mosbach, Germany.
A Rowan tree (Mountain Ash) was chosen to be planted in Grove Gardens as this park has not benefited from a new tree, for a while. Moreover, this species provides berries for birds later in the year when they start preparing for winter.
The Mayor of Mosbach, Germany, also planted a tree at the same time on the same day to commemorate the two towns' friendship.

Hampshire County Council has around 3500 roadside salt bins located across the highway network.
The bins are filled with a 50:50 mix of salt and grit and this can be freely used by members of the community for de-icing pavements and smaller access roads. It only takes a tablespoon of salt/grit (approximately 20 grams) to treat one square metre, so a full bin can treat a substantial area.
If your local salt bin is less than ¾ full and needs re-filling through the winter, click here www.hants.gov.uk/transport/roadmaintenance/severeweather/salting.
Our office opening hours are:
Monday, Tuesday & Thursday: 09:00-16:30
