For telephone calls open 9.00am - 5.00pm 023 80863138.

The Town Council are pleased to announce the re-opening, subject to social distancing, of the following facilities:


  1. The Eling Experience is now open. To pre book please call 0230 80863138 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Thursday or 023 80869575 on Friday to Sunday between 10.30am and 4pm.  The Mill will be open  between 10.30am and 4.30pm between Friday and Sunday to visitors.  The Tide Mill flour can also now be purchased from the Civic Centre at £3 per bag cash payments only. The Cafe will be open for take-away only for coffee/tea and cakes.
  2. The Garage Youth Centre will be re-opening as soon as we can put in place ”Covid secure” measures and the Youth Centre will contact its members on that basis.

    The Town Council has managed to open Testwood Pool but due to Government Corona safe guidance, they have to man the pool continually and monitor Covid-19 secure requirements.  The Council are looking to see if it is possible to open one more pool/splash pad but there are issues with lack of trained staff and any new staff training required.  We should know within the next week if it will be possible to open one more pool from the middle of August to the middle of September.  We hope you will understand Covid-19 have doubled the staff requirements to open securely.

On the week starting the 1st June we will start charging again on the Toll Bridge with separation procedures in place. It would help if users of the bridge have a pound coin available to put into a special net. More details will follow. Both resident and cemetery passes that expired 31 March 2020 will still be valid until 30th August 2020.


All users of opening facilities MUST accord with the following rules:-
