Dash To Raise Cash – ‘Dash of Colour’

Dash of Colour - Phyllis Tuckwell HospiceDon’t forget Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice’s new fundraising event, Dash of Colour, which will be taking place at 11am on Saturday 6th September at Frimley Lodge Park, Frimley Green.

Dash of Colour is a colourful fun run with a difference! Participants – wearing white clothing – can run, walk or jog the 5k route, and at every kilometre mark will be showered with beautiful, multi-coloured powder paint. They will finish the course covered in bright, vivid colours – celebrating the work of the Hospice and the colour it brings to the lives of so many of its patients and their families.

Dash of Colour is a truly unique way for people to raise money for this local hospice, which cares for over 140 patients, carers and relatives every day, across West Surrey and North-East Hampshire, both in their homes and at the Hospice. Its services have always been offered free-of-charge, but as the Hospice receives less than 15% of its funding from the NHS /Government, it needs to raise over £15,000 each day to be able to continue to provide this outstanding level of care and support.

Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice would like to thank Cane Adam Paint & Tools – their Gold Primary Sponsor – for supporting Dash of Colour, and The Bin Cleaning Company and Allianz, who are also kindly sponsoring this event.

Over 350 people have already registered to take part – so why not join them? To register for Dash of Colour, please visit www.pth.org.uk or call 01252 729446.

How councils have tried to battle the dog poo problem – Via getSURREY

Spelthorne Borough Council's anti-dog fouling poster

By David Stubbings

Councils across Surrey have tried a number of different methods to solve the problem of dog mess over the years with some ideas more unusual than others.

Spelthorne Borough Council’s anti-dog fouling poster has become a social media hit a year after it was first launched.

The authority’s hard-hitting approach has seen its No Messin’ poster spread like wild-fire online. But Spelthorne isn’t the first council to take an original approach to the dog mess problem.

Here are a few other ways Surrey authorities – and local people – have tried to tackle the problem:

Brown balloons

Elmbridge Borough Council’s street cleaning team replaced dog poos with brown balloons in November 2013 with a message that read “did you leave your dog’s poo here?” as well as stern words of advice: “Bag it & Bin it”.

There’s no such thing as the dog poo fairy

That was the slogan of Surrey Heath Borough Council’s campaign in 2012.

The authority ran a campaign in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy as a reminder to dog walkers to be responsible for cleaning up after their pets in public. Council officers gave out information and plastic disposal bags to pet owners.

The council also stepped up its activities in areas where dog fouling was a persistent issue. Offenders, if caught, were to be issued a £50 fixed penalty and with a possible £1,000 fine should the incident go to court.

Name and shame

Surrey Heath again, who in June of this year set up a members panel to tackle the problem which will report back to the borough council’s Community Services Scrutiny Committee.

Fed up councillor Paul Deach said: “If we’re not going to go out and target offenders, then our campaigns aren’t going to make a lot of difference.

“It’s time to catch them, fine them and make an example of them publicly – to name and shame them. We have to send out a strong message that dog fouling will not be tolerated in Surrey Heath.”

Padding Required for Epilepsy Society

Dan Adams - Padding RequiredTraining has begun in earnest for Surrey’s Dan Adams as he gears up for a 60-mile charity cycle ride for people with epilepsy.

Dan, of Camberley, said: ‘Epilepsy is close to my heart as it is in my family and I have friends with the condition. One in every hundred people in the UK has epilepsy and the unpredictable nature of seizures can make life difficult.

‘I’ve recently turned 40 and, although it’s been said that this may be a mid-life crisis, I feel the need to challenge myself and to raise awareness of this often stigmatised condition. ‘

He continued: ‘I’m not a keen cyclist, nor a great lover of exercise, but I’m now training myself for the challenge of riding 60 miles from Camberley in Surrey to Worthing in West Sussex on 4 October. ‘

Dan is hoping to raise £1,000 for Epilepsy Society and can be sponsored at  http://www.justgiving.com/paddingrequired or to donate £5, simply text DANA74 £5 to 70070.

He is urging people to keep up with his training progress and follow him on the day of the ride on Twitter @paddingrequired.

Vulcan confirmed at Wings and Wheels but with a twist!

Wing and Wheels Airshow, Dunsfold, SurreyThe last airworthy Avro Vulcan will be putting on a powerful display as she returns to Wings & Wheels on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24thAugust this summer.

She won’t be alone though as on Saturday the Show has another special formation planned with the Vulcan and three Gnats of the Red Gnat Display Team performing a flypast.

The Vulcan to the Sky’s Avro Vulcan XH558 is the only flying example of the country’s powerful V-Force. Painted in “anti-flash” white, XH558 was delivered on 1st July 1960, from the factory at Woodford, near Manchester, to RAF Waddington near Lincoln. XH558 was the first Vulcan B.Mk2 to be delivered to the RAF, and she is now the oldest complete Vulcan in the world.

XH558 was also the last Vulcan to leave RAF service, flying on from 1986 to 1993 as the single RAF Display Vulcan, a career spanning 33 years. Her final flight was on 23rd March 1993 to Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome in Leicestershire, having been sold off by the Ministry of Defence to C Walton Ltd, a family firm which purchased and maintained her. In 1997, a small team, headed by Dr Robert Plemming, put together an audacious plan to return her to flight which took place in October 2007.

The Red Gnat Display Team is part of The Heritage Aircraft Trust (a UK registered Charity), dedicated to the restoration and conservation of classic historic aircraft. Its home base is at North Weald Airfield near London in Essex. The team currently consists of three Folland Gnat T. Mk1 aircraft expertly maintained and displayed and is the only civilian supersonic jet aerobatic display team on the air show circuit.

Jamie McAllister, Events Director comments: “As well as solo displays, the Vulcan and Red Gnat Display Team will be performing a one off fly past on Saturday, the second unique formation to take place over the weekend.  We are very excited to have these aircraft join the line-up at Wings & Wheels, which is shaping up to be a 10th celebration to remember.”

The 10th annual Wings & Wheels will be held over the August Bank holiday weekend; Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th August 2014, at Dunsfold Park near Guildford, Surrey, and is open to spectators from 09:00 until 21:00.

Tickets start from £20 for adults, £45 for a family (2 adults and 3 children aged 5 – 15yrs), £6 for children aged between 5 and 15yrs and under 5s are free. Hospitality packages start from £150 per person, weekend passes, grandstand tickets and camping are also available. For more information visit www.wingsandwheels.net or to book standard tickets call 08712 305 572.

Wings & Wheels is promoted by Dunsfold Park Limited and in 2014 will be assisting the fundraising efforts of Brooklands Museum Trust and Help for Heroes.
