Milford Golf Course – 180 houses – Public Exhibition Tuesday 22nd May

The developers of Milford Golf Course are holding an exhibition with an outline of the proposed 180 home re-development of the Golf Course on the South side of Station Lane.  With Station Lane and Milford crossroads already congested at peak times, such a development will put pressure on the infrastructure in our area. With the prospect of the doubling of traffic on this road once Dunsfold Park is built it is vital that residents make their views on record at this exhibition.    All are invited to view on Tuesday 22nd between 3pm and 8pm at the Golf Club in Station Lane.


Hambledon Village Hall serving fund-raising tea and cakes at Vann on Bank Holiday Monday 7th May, 2 pm onwards.

We will serving tea and homemade cakes at Vann on Monday 7th May from 2 pm onwards. Most cakes are baked by village hall committee members. For our effort, the hall usually receives a generous donation from Mary Caroe.  This will be added to hall maintenance fund.

For a change,  the weather looks to be kind to us this year, so please do come and enjoy both the garden and the cakes!

Dunsfold and Waverley’s Local Plan

Following the spirited discussions at Thursday’s Parish Meeting about the Secretary of State’s approval of the Dunsfold development for 1800+ homes on the airfield, here is some additional information.

These four recent press releases from Protect our Waverley 

address some of the questions voiced at our meeting, particularly the 3 Court Challenges on the Waverley Local Plan,  the issue of infrastructure money to cope ( or not ) with the traffic from Dunsfold, and the approach that Guildford BC are taking with their Local Plan (in relation to Woking’s unmet need for extra housing ) that is different to Waverley.

 

Villagers Urged to be Vigilant After Burglaries

Thieves have stolen property from a house in Hambledon, breaking in during broad daylight.

There have been other break-ins in the area in recent days including an attempt to steal two Land Rover Defenders.

Villagers are urged to ensure their homes and vehicles are securely locked and to report any suspicious activity to police.

Please also inform your Neighbourhood Watch coordinator. Contact details can be found on this website by opening up the Home menu and clicking on Essential Information. The Parish Magazine also carries contact information.

Jumble Sale – The Results

Yet again, the villagers of Hambledon have not only given us their jumble but also turned up on Saturday 21 April to buy (not the same things they had donated). Thank you for your generous support. We would also like to thank Michelle, her daughter, Edna Atkin, Pip and Coral who helped man the stalls.

The sale caused a traffic jam. Apologies to the residents opposite the hall as a few cars were sent past their houses to unblock the gridlock.

The Jumble sale together with cash donations from Pat Williams and Philip Underwood have brought the total raised to £1005 for the hall’s maintenance fund. This will go in part towards new chairs and stage curtain.
