Hello <<First Name>>

Firstly, I just want to wish you a very happy and healthy new year to you and your family.

2020 was an awful year in many ways but I am absolutely convinced that the challenges brought us much closer together as a community.

As we enter 2021 into another national lockdown, it is clear we face many more challenges but I do have optimism for the future as the vaccination program is rolled out.

I have received a number of briefings about the current situation and despite the rubbish that conspiracy theorists are putting out, our hospitals are in danger of falling over so I want to ask you to encourage every member of your household to stick closely to the rules and guidelines.

If you need any support whatsoever, please let me know and I will look at ways in directing the appropriate support to you.

Lucky Escape

I think you will be shocked at the images I published on my page on Wednesday so I do encourage you to check them out.

Late Tuesday night at around midnight there was an incident on Wharf Road.

 
Residents heard a "terrific bang" which was as a result of a van which had apparently been speeding and had lost control. The result was to wipe out neighbour's gates, cars and fencing. The van then ended up in a garden.

One resident own van was parked up and was then hit with such force it was moved 20 feet across the drive. The parked up van contains a water tank which makes the vehicle extremely heavy which says a lot about the force in which it was hit.

The driver was taken to hospital but a roadside breath test was positive and he’s under investigation for being unfit through drink and drugs whilst driving.

What a lucky escape for residents and the driver. The outcome could have been much much worse.

Images of the carnage here.

Lockdown

I don't need to add to all the noise about the lockdown except to say, the Borough and the County Council are both in a very high state of preparedness and their highest priorities are to look after our vulnerable residents and to support the roll-out of the vaccination program.

Such is the amazing community spirit that exists in our community, I have received a lot of communication from residents wanting to volunteer to help other members of the community.

I have been in touch with Camberley Care this week who would really welcome some volunteers to help residents in the Mytchett, Frimley Green and Deepcut (and a little wider) with shopping, prescription pick up and to support the emergency handyman service.

If you could spare some time to assist with this, please register as a volunteer at the Camberly Care Website here.

For all the latest information regarding the lockdown check out the Surrey Matters website here.

Gym for Frimley Lodge

I have received a request from a local resident to look into the possibility of an outdoor gym for Frimley Lodge Park. More on this at my page here.

Barracks Photo Set

The last soldier left Princess Royal Barracks (PRB) on the 18th December 2020 and the barracks was deactivated as an active military base.

A few days before this, I was given unrestricted access to PRB to photograph all the buildings before they are handed over to the Metropolitan Police Fire Arms teams for scenario training and then demolished to make way for the next phases of the Mindenhurst Housing Development.

Over the years I have visited PRB many times but this visit was quite eerie.

I hope this photo set does the memory of PRB justice and you can view the images on my page here. The title image of this email is from the photo set

Loman Road Play Area

I reported previously that the work to update Loman Play Area was to commence in February. However, I am delighted to report that this has been brought forward. More information about this at my page here.

MBE for Peter Glover

Last week, I got the news that my good friend Peter Glover was recognised in the New Years Honours List for services to the NHS, community resuscitation and services to the wider community.

Peter supported me during my time as a Community First Responder for South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. We have been good friends ever since.

This recognition for his work in our community is richly deserved and I could not be more proud of my friend who as I type is right on the front line along with his Ambulance Service colleagues at a time of unprecedented pressures on the NHS.

Read more about Peter's achievements here.
As always I want to hear from you if you have anything you would like to discuss with me of a local nature.

Best wishes
