London Road War Memorial renovation

Remembrance Parade Camberley Nov 11 (18)Restoration work began this week on the London Road War Memorial in Camberley.

Surrey Heath Borough Council has commissioned the work to coincide with 100 years since the First World War.

As part of the refurbishment, the stone and surrounding perimeter walls are being cleaned and the inscribed letters restored.

The project has been jointly funded by Surrey Heath Borough Council, the RMA and the War Memorials Trust.

Work will be completed in advance of Remembrance Sunday on 9 November, with the renewal being carried out by Haven Memorials from Fleet, whose recent restoration work includes plaques in the RMA’s War Memorial Chapel.

The Camberley U3A Family History Group have kindly photographed each side of the memorial and created name lists for confirmation during restoration.

Surrey Heath Military Champion Cllr Colin Dougan said: “The restoration coincides with the First World War centenary in 2014, but also commemorates the contributions made by troops involved in more recent conflicts, enabling us to remember and honour all those who have given their lives for our country.”

Major General Stuart Skeates, the Commandant of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst paid tribute to the dedication of those involved in the restoration saying.  “The restoration of this iconic memorial is particularly fitting in this the centenary year of the start of World War 1.  It is also a reflection of the special relationship between the Royal Military Academy, Surrey Heath Borough Council and the town of Camberley which has endured for so long.  I am grateful to all of those involved for ensuring that the monument continues to stand as a testament to the local young men and women who gave so much in the service of their community and country.”

Windesham Parish Council petitioning Surrey County Council on its Draft Local Transport Strategy

Red Road Crash - Tim Dodds

Red Road Accident – Image with thanks @TimDodds

Windlesham Parish Council have started a petition calling on Surrey County Council to revise the Surrey Heath Draft Local Transport Strategy & Forward Programme so that it includes transport mitigation for the villages of Lightwater, Bagshot and Windlesham.

The petition states “although the plan recognises issues in the 3 villages it has NO new strategies to deal with them and is focused almost entirely on Camberley”.

It also states “The 3 most dangerous roads in Surrey Heath (excluding the M3) are the A322, the A30 and the B311 (Red Rd). All 3 roads run through Windlesham Parish and together account for 34% of all fatal or serious accidents (2009-13). BUT NO traffic safety mitigation has been proposed for Windlesham Parish”.

Windlesham Parish Council say “Surrey County Council must reconsider its draft programme ” and suggests a number of options for consideration.
