Streetlife, the local social network, has a simple aim: to help people make the most of where they live by connecting with their neighbours.
The website provides a free and easy place to share local news, views, recommendations and resources, enabling people with busy routines or reduced mobility to keep in touch with their community.
Conversations started on Streetlife have helped unite lost pets with owners, expose doorstep scammers, save threatened public services and recall local history. The site is also encouraging real-world friendships, with neighbours sharing gardening equipment, IT advice and dentist recommendations, organising craft groups, street parties and book clubs.
Streetlife has just launched across East Hampshire and everyone – residents, groups, local government representatives and businesses – is invited to share their knowledge, discuss the local issues they care about, and help build a stronger, better connected community.

Thanks to funding from the Hampshire County Council Rural Development fund we are pleased to be able to offer, in addition to our current project, extra support to tackle fuel poverty in the rural areas of Hampshire.
As well as the standard level of support available through Hitting the Cold Spots, HCC recognise that those residents living in the rural areas of Hampshire can face added challenges.
Hitting the Cold Spots can help individuals and families throughout the Hampshire County Council area with practical support and detailed advice including visits from skilled Advisors. This can lead to the provision of emergency heating, access to funding for repairs and replacement heating or hot water systems as well as small grants to help cope with winter emergencies.
Hitting the Cold Spots will also provide practical support with debt, financial advice and benefits as well as assistance with switching energy providers. Home Safety visits offering carbon monoxide detectors and smoke detectors are also available.
For further information see www.hants.gov.uk/cold-spots and for advice contact the Hitting the Cold Spots Advisor on Freephone 0800 804 8601or email email@example.com
Sign-up for the latest news about the Superfast Broadband Programme and service updates & events in your area.
Registering will also help to demonstrate that there are plenty of potential customers who would make use of these services. High levels of demand and uptake help the programme funding go further, increasing the number of locations the Council is able to reach.

East Hampshire residents are being urged to join EHDC in dimming their lights between 10pm and 11pm on Monday 4 August to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War One.
The lights out campaign invites everyone in the UK to turn off their lights, leaving on a single light or candle for a shared moment of reflection during this time.
All non-essential lighting at the EHDC offices in Penns Place will be dimmed in a mark of respect to those who lived, fought and died for our country.
You may be aware of a statement in the budget that from 1 October 2014 displaying a road fund licence (tax disc) on a vehicle windscreen is no longer a legal requirement.
However there is another change that perhaps not so many people are aware of which is outlined below:
Buying a vehicle
From 1 October, when you buy a vehicle, the vehicle tax will no longer be transferred with the vehicle. You will need to obtain a new vehicle tax before you can use the vehicle.
You can tax the vehicle using the New Keeper Supplement (V5C/2) part of the vehicle registration certificate (V5C) online or by phone. Alternatively, you may wish to visit a Post Office branch.
Selling a vehicle
If you sell a vehicle after 1 october 2014 and you have notified DVLA, you will automatically get a refund for any full calendar months left on the vehicle tax.
