Owen Livesey

Sports personality of the year: Owen Livesey

The Surrey Heath Sports Awards celebrated the best in local sporting achievement on Sunday 19 October at an invite-only ceremony at Camberley Theatre.

Organised by Surrey Heath Borough Council, the awards honour people from all over the borough who have excelled in sports including football, basketball, judo and cricket.

The evening is one of the most anticipated events in the borough calendar as a chance to celebrate the achievements of local athletes, clubs, coaches and volunteers. Nominations were open to the public for two months between July and August.

The awards were attended by around 350 members of the local sporting community and selected VIPs including the Mayor of Surrey Heath Cllr Bob Paton.

Cllr Craig Fennell, portfolio holder for Business said, “This year has been a stellar year for sport in the borough with gold medals for Camberley Judo Club at the Commonwealth Games and Camberley hosting Stage 7 of the Tour of Britain. The awards have been a great chance to enjoy and reflect on our achievements and look to further successes in the future.”

Petition – Change the decision to fund cancer treatment for Tomlinscote teacher Alice Dann

Alice DannThis week I have received literally dozens of emails, direct messages and text messages urging me to publish this petition on the Residents Network.

While at Tomlinscote School this evening I bumped into my good friend Ian Jarrett who also pleaded with me to publish the petition. He said that Alice is a much loved teacher not only by her colleagues but also from the young people who attend Tomlinscote.

Having taken the time to find out a little bit about Alice, it is clear to me that she is a remarkable woman who deserves our full support.

I will be signing the petition and I would encourage everyone who reads this to do the same.

Frimley Lodge opens Free Library!

Mayor of Surrey Heath - Frimley Lodge LibraryThe Frimley Lodge Free Library was officially opened this week by the Mayor of Surrey Heath, Cllr Bob Paton.

Situated in a brightly coloured shed by the pitch and putt course, the Library is free to use during park opening hours. Visitors can take a book to read either in a relaxing spot outside or in the warm and cosy café. If you haven’t finished the book by the time you come to leave, you are welcome to take it home! Just return it when you’ve finished or replace with another book you’ve read from your bookshelf.

The library idea was presented by Surrey Heath’s Executive Head of Business, Leigh Thornton, inspired after seeing an article about a free library in a private garden in America.

Leigh said: “We believe the free library is the first in the country to be offered within a park. The library adds another facility to the very popular Frimley Lodge Park and encourages recycling, reading and entices people to spend a little more time in the great outdoors.”

Visitors are encouraged to recycle books from home they’ve finished with by donating them for other users to enjoy. Simply bring them along to the Park and put them in the Library or leave them with the Café.

The library will play host to free storytelling for kids during the forthcoming half-term. Every day from Monday 27 to Friday 31 October, staff from the council’s leisure team will read classic children’s stories at 11am including The Gruffalo, The Slightly Annoying Elephant and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.

Frimley Lodge Park is already recognised as one of the best in the country after winning a coveted Green Flag earlier this year.
