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.

Learn How to use an Automated External Defibrillator

AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR

How many times have you seen an AED and maybe wondered how to use it? They do give verbal instructions, but if you would like to learn more about what to do in an emergency and practice with an AED, we are holding courses in Hambledon. The course costs £20 and is run by St Barts. You can choose from Saturday 12th May (am or pm) or Saturday 19th May 2 to 5pm.

To book your place, please call Mary Grove on 01483 415815 or email grovemum@aol.com.

Life Saving and AED Courses

Two years ago a number of villagers attended Life Saving and AED courses run by St Barts. All who attended agreed how valuable they were.

A further two courses have now been organised. They will be on Saturday 12 May (10-1pm or 2-5pm) and Saturday 19th May (2-5pm) and will be held in the Church Room. The cost will be £20 and, after expenses are taken out, the remainder pays for courses held in less well-off areas of London.

If you would be interested in attending, please contact Mary Grove on 01483 415815 or at grovemum@aol.com.
