Nomorebullying was set up by a 14 year old and his friends to support their peers with bullying and the effects this has on the individual and the community. As part of this, Safer North Hampshire has set up an online anonymous survey for secondary school age children across North Hampshire to fill out. The survey only takes a minute or so to complete. There is no closing date to complete the survey by as it is a rolling programme.

There is also a 20 page Nomorebullying booklet full of facts and figures, case studies and further advice which can be accessed through the Safer North Hampshire website - see Contact Details below.

Food Hygiene Ratings logo

Every business that sells or serves food in Rushmoor has been rated for food hygiene by Rushmoor Borough Council. The ratings are based on the standards observed at the time of the last inspection. A rating of “5” is “Very Good” and “4” means “Good”. In other words, you can be confident that the food has been prepared and stored in a safe and hygienic way. “3” shows a business is operating at a “Satisfactory” standard. A score of “2”, “1” or ”0” shows the business needs to make improvements.

Some businesses promote their rating by displaying a window sticker, but you can check the hygiene rating of every food business in and around Rushmoor online.
