Community Council minutes Dec 12

This year certainly seems to have passed very quickly with our last meeting of 2012

Peaslake Community Council


 being held on the 3rd of December.


Much has happened in the Parish over the last twelve months with the Olympic Torch in Shere or the two days of cycling events along the A25 being some of the most prominent.


Congratulations to the Trustees of Peaslake School for becoming 1 of only 102 schools to be made “Free Schools” from September 2013 by the Secretary of State, a marvellous achievement for all concerned.


We were all sorry to learn that Lesley Childs the Parish Clerk decided to retire after many years of service to the community at the end of this year, she will be greatly missed.


The Village Christmas celebrations are well under way with the Village tree being erected on the 14th and the Christmas Evening at the village Hall on the 20th.


We were informed that the Police have the name of a man they wish to interview in connection with the spate of “thefts from garden sheds.”


On the more mundane side the following matters were requested to be brought to the attention of the appropriate authorities:


Salt Boxes near Lentern Close, Posts near the Lentern Close Bus shelter, Soil trap in the Pond Lane car park, The blocked drain near Peaslake Garage, and the possibility of roads being swept in the Village.


The Parking of cars and large vans during the weekends  by visitors to the Village was also raised. A suggestion that leaflets should be handed to visitors asking them to park in the Hurtwood car park, Walking Bottom, was made, also Mr. Cohen offered to speak to the “Recreation Committee” regarding using the area as a weekend visitors car park.


May we take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and 2013.

Our next meeting will be on Monday the 7th January 2013.
