Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink! But oh! that stink!

Ye Gods just when you think it can’t get any worse – it just does!


Is there anyone at home at,”Your Waverley” – “Your Thames Water,” Your Surrey County Council,” The Environment Agency, the poo patrol, water wizards … anyone… just anyone?

Last week Thames Water was unloading thousands of bottles of water, bringing in tankers because  2,000 residents were without water due to a series of  damaged water mains. Some were  without water for 24 hours, some even longer. Children were sent home from school because they couldn’t use the loo, and the beleaguered residents of Amlets Lane (you know the one where Cala Homes intends  to build 125 homes) were without power too! No lecky, no water, no hope and no way out, because the traffic hold ups stretched for miles?

It was so bad, according to the natives who contacted us, it  is rumoured that the Flying Dutchman, who lives adjacent to the Cala Homes site in Amlets Lane  has  sold  his nursery site in Elmbridge Road, picked up his clogs and is heading  for his homeland? 

Councillors  refused to give him permission to build 265 homes earlier this year , but  officers have subsequently  included it in… THE  DAFT LOCAL PLAN!   But villagers who worked with him on his “vision” to “help Cranleigh” tell us he was  so  mad at the decision he’s threatened to sell up and  leave the area.

 Why? because all those  other bloody cheeky developers, have been given their permissions. Ungrateful bunch, and after all those years of sitting through  those damned  “secret meetings” he set up for  them all with, borough, county   councillors and planning officers!   And, how did they repay him for  all that hard work,  refused his scheme,   allowed all the rest to take  home the goodies from the party,  including one who is about  to build “much-needed homes for local people” right next door to him! Some people have such a flipping nerve!

OR … Perhaps

So there we are then – tankers away in the village that has a history of flooding – but not a drop to drink, or flush with. And if that wasn’t bad enough – you couldn’t make it up…because …

this is to-day’s Twitter Storm brewing over  the village dubbed “Poor old Cranleigh.” by “Your Waverley”  that wants  to dump 48% of the borough’s housing over there.   And yes guys and gals – we have heard all the way over here in Farnham that the stink in Cranleigh is as high as a kite! In fact the  smell is currently wafting over our very own   East Street!

And… where are its borough councillors – you know the ones who   created this fine mess? All we can hear is the sound of silence from  four and a loud bellow from one solitary  soul who has been defending Cranleigh from the onward march of developers. Mary Foryszewski, along with her parish council colleagues and the Cranleigh Civic Society, left to   fight Cranleigh’s corner!   

Here’s just some of the Cranleigh mutter! But there’s more, much more!
