Information transcript

Police believe they’ve solved the mystery of a cyclist who was found dead on the road in Droxford.

The body of the cyclist was spotted two weeks ago, late on the Monday night on Station Road in the village but nobody knew who he was.

Now, Hampshire Police say they believe the dead man is 55-year-old Declan Murray who was reported missing from Southampton on the 16th of August.

It’s not known why he was on the Petersfield side of the city in Droxford.

Declan’s next of kin are being supported by specialist officers but formal identification of the body has not yet taken place.

A Home Office Post Mortem Examination suggests there were no other vehicles involved in the death.

If you have any information about the death in Droxford please contact Hampshire police on 101, and quote this incident number… 44 200 303 926

A Petersfield hairdressing salon has won a prestigious competition.

Salon Sixteen was judged to be a cut above other salons across the South of England and collected top prize in the Southern Enterprise Awards. Owner Rosie Packham-Boyns says it came out of the blue.

The salon has recently completed an extension to its premises off Lavant Street in Petersfield.


Petersfield fundraisers for the RNLI have launched a new campaign.

The local branch of the Royal National Lifeboats Institute says it relies on public donations but normal fundraising has been impossible during the Coronavirus Pandemic.

It has now turned to an online model to help bring in money and set a target of one thousand pounds.

Lifeboats help protect people across our coastline and all the money raised in Petersfield will go to help support the twenty four hour search and rescue service provided by the RNLI.

The volunteers say they rely on the safest, most reliable lifeboats and modern stations to launch from.
