New Neighbors are Coming.  The H & B commercial building complex on Rockingham Road (and abutting Flat Rock) is nearing completion and tenants will be moving in soon. As far as we know there will be at least the following businesses: Peak Internal Medicine Associates (Internal Medicine), Renew MediSpa of Southern N.H. (aesthetic medical services), OT Works 4 Kidz (evaluate and treat children with disabilities), CADVantage, Inc. (printed circuit board designers) and Bella Viaggio Salons and Spas (hair, nail and spa services).  Seems like they should be pretty good neighbors.

From the Board of Directors

Please, Please S…L...O…W… Down.  Some of you and/or your guests are ignoring the most important rule to live by in Hadleigh Woods ……that is the Speed Limit of 20 miles per hour for both the private road and Flat Rock (a town road).  Nobody wants to have to take action against repetitive offenders so simply slow down and everyone wins!  Thanks in advance for your cooperation in slowing down and in letting your guests know that the speed limit applies to them as well.

Nominating Committee. The Board is still seeking two or three members to step forward to serve on the Nominating Committee.  If you are so inclined or want to discuss the task, please contact Len K., President, without delay.

Lamp Posts Repairs in the Common Area:  A volunteer committee headed up by Directors George and Mary Ann, will inspect, clean and replace burned out lamp bulbs throughout the community.  For anyone wanting to help out, please give any Director a call so we can set-up the work dates.

Defective Weather Stripping on the Large, Double Hung Windows.  Some of you have noticed that the vinyl/foam weather strip found on the bottom of the lower sashes have deteriorated (cracked open or even partially fallen off).  Although the manufacturer of these windows only warranties them for one year, the local dealer who supplied them to the builder will provide replacement stripping material for another three years.  To inspect yours, run your fingers along the very bottom of the sash and you can feel the strip and determine its condition.  If you identify any that need repair, notify one of the Directors with the number of windows to be repaired and the Board will arrange to get the new stripping to you.  You are responsible for removing the old strip, cutting and sliding the new piece in place.

New Association Blanket Insurance Policy.  Effective August 14, 2007 the Board accepted a new and improved, all-inclusive Blanket Insurance package for the Association from Nationwide Insurance.  Beyond increased liability, full building structure and earthquake coverage, there are aspects of the new plan that may have a positive impact on your own condo insurance.  Since the impact is dependent upon what you might have done to customize your unit after initial occupancy, we urge you to review the recent letter and new Declarations page the Board sent to you and then contact your own insurer or Jamie Santo at 890-6439, the local Nationwide agent.

Fall Loam and Reseeding Program.  The Board has received another load of loam (it’s free and it’s in the parking area adjacent to 23 and 25 Hadleigh).  Also, seed and fertilizer is available to make minor repairs to damaged lawns.  We are looking for anyone who would like to work as a lawn team volunteer or work alone around their unit. Contact any Director to sign-up.

Landscape Committee.  Our collective thanks continue to go out to this group of volunteers who help so much with the task of keeping our common areas looking so neat and groomed.  Right now they are enhancing the Hadleigh Road entrance a bit as well as tackling encroaching and unwanted weeds, bushes and shrubs.

A Notary Among Us.  Nina is a certified Notary Public and is available to serve members of the community.


Hadleigh Woods Calendar:

Anyone Interested in Playing Poker?  A group of card playing residents are looking forward to putting together a regular, friendly, no-stakes poker game of one or several tables.  If there are any other like-minded residents please give Dick M. 890-0323, Joe C. 898-3379 or Joe D. 893-1974 a call.

Anyone for Golf?  Every Monday through at least mid-October, starting at approx. 9:30 AM, the “H-W Golf School and Tourney” is held at the quaint Applewood Golf Course behind the Windham House on Range Rd.  This opportunity is open to all beginners and rusty golfers.  Several more experienced residents (men and ladies) are there to help with your game.  Several “New in ’07 Golfers” are already having the time of their lives.  Come and join in the fun!

Breakfast Every Friday at 8:30 AM.  An informal breakfast open to all residents of Hadleigh Woods is normally held every Friday at 8:30 AM at the Alley Kat Grill located inside the Park Place Lanes, unless you are notified differently.

Bowling Every Wednesday at 3:00 PM.  The Hadleigh WoodsOpen-To-All, Two String” bowling party is normally held every Wednesday afternoon at 3:00 PM at Park Place Lanes.  Afterward, around 5 PM, everyone in the community is welcome to join in for dinner at J. Michael’s Sports Pub on Rockingham Road.   

Walking the Rail Trail Every Sunday at 9:01 AM.  Everyone is invited to be a walker (weather permitting) on the paved Rail Trail between Roulston Rd. and Windham Depot Rd.  Different distances for different folks can be readily accommodated.  After the walk, around 10 AM, all walkers and others are free to stop for coffee and breakfast at the Kitchen at Windham Jct.  See the Web Site for more on times, etc.

It was nice to go away with browned-out lawns and return just a week later to the deep greens we all prefer.  Rumor has it that we will have a beautiful fall with warm days, cool nights and even a frost or two thrown in for good measure.  Enjoy the variety!
