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.

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.
