The NHS is setting up dozens of mass COVID vaccination centres around the country and is seeking 40,000 staff.
Cranleigh village leaders heard on Thursday that the parish council had been “very busy” getting to grips with the new COVID-19 rules.
Clerk Beverley Bell said:
“Sometimes things are changing by the hour.”
The parish council had now received £11,450 as its share of the £1.28m given to Waverley Borough Council by the Government to deal with the Covid measures that had been put in place around the borough during the pandemic.
A request had also been received from the CCG – (Care Commissioning Group) – the Guildford & Waverley organisation that delivers healthcare locally – asking if it could use Cranleigh Village Hall for a mass vaccination centre from December 1st. It would require the use of the high street building from 8 am until 8 pm seven days a week for the foreseeable future.
A working party had inspected the premises adjacent to Waverley’s Village Way car park to ensure the hall’s ‘temporary’ lighting was sufficient for the council to give the go-ahead.

Well done Cranleigh! I am a retired hospital doctor who moved to Cranleigh 3 years ago. If I can help in anyway please email me!
Well done to Cranleigh Parish Council – and in particular to Chairman Cllr Liz Townsend how always puts the community in the Spotlight.
How do you find out when when having vaccine
Are you enquiring when vaccines will be available at Cranleigh Village Hall? As far as we are aware, you will be contacted by your GP once vaccines are available. We believe that will be the Oxford vaccine – once available.
When is Cranleigh starting vacation
We believe tht it may start on 11th January, but will try to confirm this.
Who will get this first
Hopefully our NHS and care workers – then the elderly and vulnerable and then the rest of us we hope.
