One of the best and quickest ways to get to know people in the Village is to become one of our willing volunteers! Keep an eye on the Latest News and Events page (on the lefthand side). For things which really interest you get in contact with the organisers and ask if they would like any help.
You might want to serve on a Committee, or be involved in running an event – or you might just be prepared to give a hand with running a stall, or with the washing-up, or the raffle.
Damerham is a very “eventful” place – and we can never have too many helpers!
Confused about Household Recycling?
Recycling is collected from all households in the New Forest every week in clear sacks.
What can I put in the clear sack?
Fill your clear sack with household recycling, tie it and place it at the edge of your property for collection each week. Sacks should be put out for collection no earlier than 6pm on the evening before collection and no later than 6am on the day of collection.
Recycling should be placed loose in the sack; any items contained in carrier bags within the sack cannot be taken.
