This chill cabinet was quickly removed from the footway in Hill Head Road after Alex Brims reported it to Fareham Council.
It had stood for several days outside an empty house which is being refurbished.
Update: [Another local resident stopped the regular bin and asked them to put it up as well.]

Jim takes a walk on the wet side
Many residents complain to us about puddles on the footways behind the Stubbington Green bus stop.
The paved area has been extended over the years, but vans and lorries are often parked on the grass, churning it up.
Jim Forrest has asked the Council if they will:
– Replenish the sunken surface on the informal path from the bus shelter to the toilets
– Reseed and raise the grassed areas close to the paths
– Resurface the asphalt where needed and ensure that council and contractors’ vehicles keep to the paved area.
But it’s also up to all of us to protect grass verges on our streets – do try to make sure your and your visitors’ cars aren’t churning the grass.

Fareham Community Hospital
Lib Dems are pressing Fareham Council to look at options to restore a bus service to the Community Hospital at Locks Heath.
A new system to assess the urgency of consultations means some patients may be able to have same-day appointments at the hospital if their local surgery cannot offer them.
But Lib Dem councillor Maryam Brady pointed out that people with mobility problems have difficulty getting there.
The hospital had a bus service when it opened, and Lib Dems have always
argued that it was withdrawn too soon and patient numbers are now growing.
The new housing for elderly people being built alongside the Community Hospital should also provide new potential passengers.
Surely one of the X4/X5 Southampton routes could be tweaked to include a loop to the hospital for some journeys.
