Dear old Bob Lees, Chairman of Protect our Little Corner’s summer just got even busier!
Just when you, dear Reader, thought this selfless, civically minded individual couldn’t give any more to the Borough, one eagle-eyed Waverley Web correspondent pointed out that Protect our Waverley has been pumping out Press Releases from its Headquarters at Unit A11, Fairoaks Airport, Chobham, in Surrey.
Does this mean that Capt’n Bob and his cohorts are going to extend their campaigning across the borough boundary and embrace Surrey Heath? Protect our Waverley & Surrey Heath (POWASH – not to be mistaken for HOGWASH!) doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. Maybe, instead, they’ll be really ambitious and, in the interests of inclusiveness, call themselves Protect our Surrey (POS – very happy to be mistaken for POSH!)
Other businesses based at Unit A11 Fairoaks Airport are Dunsfold Airfield History Society and Cleverwoof Ltd. Plenty of surprises there then, for one could be forgiven for thinking that Dunsfold Airfield History Society would be based at …, well …, you know …, Dunsfold Airfield … Wouldn’t you if you were in their shoes? Maybe even sharing space with the Dunsfold Museum because that would be, well, a natural fit …, wouldn’t it? At least it would if they really were interested in the history of the aerodrome. Slightly more problematic when their entire raison d’être is to put a bloody great spoke in the wheel of the Dunsfold Developer’s concrete mixer!
So, these Johnny Come-Latelys have shacked up with Protect our Waverley and Cleverwoof. What a happy ship Unit A11 at Fairoaks Airport must be, full of like-minded individuals, working towards a single aim.
They must be absolutely delighted that were planned to turn Fairoaks into a Garden Village, a copy-cat model of Dunsfold Park, has been refused.
Perhaps Capt’n Bob & Co expanding their operations and objected to plans to ‘concrete over’ another brownfield site? Whatever next? The Fairoaks Airfield History Society?
Rather, first stop Dunsfold, then onto Chobham … next stop the entire Country!
Bob Lies for Prime Minister … but, NO!, better yet, Bob Lies for President – of America! Well, let’s face it Capt’n Bob and President Trump have a lot in common … and there’s a lot of people in Waverley who’d be only too happy to send him across the pond – on permanent loan! Maybe, we could have a whip round for a first class ticket or, even better, maybe the Flying Scot could be persuaded to provide a transport plane out of Dunsfold …
Here’s Waverley’s Press Release. Needless to say, we will be hanging from one of the High Court’s beams where some of our followers would quite like to see us?
