Mea Culpa -wrong spokesman?

Featured

We are reliably informed by a Cranleigh follower that Mother of Bamford has called for a correction on the Cranleigh Community Board claiming that her son is not the spokesman for the Cranleigh Village Nursing Home Trust. 

Grovel, grovel, and apologies to Mrs Bamford for inadvertently referring to her son as such. But we were reliably informed that he is considered to be the spokesman as he is all over the eastern villages like a rash of spots, speaking up for said Cranleigh’s new nursing home – never to be referred to as… a HOSPITAL.

We also understand he is stomping around Cranleigh New Town complaining about anyone that posts anything he doesn’t agree with on the Cranleigh Community Board.

So we are issuing a health warning to anyone over there in the Eastern villages remotely inclined to share our posts – please DON’T – without asking Mr or Mrs Bamford for permission first.

CRANLEIGH-HOSPITAL2

 

 

Don’t mention the word. ‘HOSPITAL!’

Don’t​ mention the word. ‘HOSPITAL!’

Particularly if you dare to share this post on The Cranleigh Community Board!

Because according to e-mails we have received from followers over there in the East – the Cranleigh Mafia is at work. ‘The Chef’ aka  Martin Bamford (he has so many fingers in so many pies) has removed this post shared by his members on the board he now owns and censors. No Gipsies and No Private Nursing Home speak?

Why we wonder? Is this a little too close to the truth?

We have also heard that the Cranleigh Parish Council will be considering The Giant Nursing Home scheme at its planning meeting next Monday.

THIS POST COMES WITH A HEALTH WARNING THAT HAS BEEN ISSUED BY EVERYONE – EXCEPT THE CRANLEIGH VILLAGE HOSPITAL TRUST! 

The words – “Hospital” must not be used!!

This is the plan for a £30/40m Private Nursing Home together with residential accommodation being put forward by A2 Dominion Director “Mr Cranleahy”and HC-One  –  as a replacement for “dare we, dare we, say it? … Cranleigh Hospital. Dammit, now we have!

CRANLEIGH-HOSPITAL2.jpg

In a nutshell,  we’re told – on good authority.  The people of Cranleigh and the nearby, villages were asked to raid their piggy banks and dig deep into their pockets to replace  – Cranleigh Cottage Hospital axed by the health authority.  And… they did… raising millions.

But now, we’ve been inundated by complaints and questions from local people who ran fundraising events – local schools, pubs, clubs and individuals – you name it, they raised it.

Now that dream has turned sour and instead of living the dream local people find themselves living  – Nightmare on Knowle Lane.

The trouble began, we understand, when “big boy” developers, such as A2 Dominion and HC-One, got involved and the scheme morphed from a new local hospital with beds for local people into something so far removed from this original concept, even the founding trustees don’t recognise it!

Angry residents tell us their questions go unanswered by Cranleigh Village Hospital Trust (CVHT) – the original organisation set up to promote the concept of local beds for local people, free at the point of demand.

We at the Waverley Web are not entirely au fait with the scheme – which has been in the pipeline since before we were even a germ of an idea – but our Cranleigh followers have been on the case, trying to winkle out some answers and this is how they faired.

• It is an 80-bed care home – it is NOT a hospital!
• It will NOT have a minor injuries unit – X-Ray, MRI or outpatients. These services will be provided by the official Cranleigh Village Hospital, operated by its Cranleigh League of Friends. We have ascertained this organisation has no link whatsoever with the CVHT Charity. Neither does it attend its meetings or have any inclination to do so.
• There will be 20 beds for community care – managed under a joint budget operated by the Guildford & Waverley Commissioning Care Group( G&WCCG) and Surrey County Council Adult Social Care (SCC).
• These beds will replace some,  (20) but not all, of the 60 beds lost when Surrey County Council closed its Longfields Home some years ago – a site now earmarked for 25 homes! Clearly a win-win for SCC but not for the good folk of Cranleigh and the surrounding villages!
• The 20 community beds will be open to ANYONE  in the GWCCG area – which covers Guildford & Waverley, not just Cranleigh and the surrounding villages.
• We are told by health workers – who have contacted us in confidence – that it is to assist with Royal Surrey County Hospital’s bed-blocking, some of which is as a direct result of SCC’s decision to close its homes in the borough.

Now pay attention!  Here’s where it gets a bit complicated.

Residents have written to us because they simply cannot unearth the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth from CVHT. What they want to know is:

Q:

Will fund-raisers and residents of Cranleigh and the surrounding villages get priority over out-of-area patients, if they require a bed?

A:

Of the 80 beds – 60 are for a Private Patients only – the remaining 20 are named as ‘community beds.’

So, in a nutshell, as Monsieur Barnier is so fond of saying: the answer is ‘NON!’
But, to elaborate, if two patients needed one of the 20 available beds – one from Guildford and one from Cranleigh – then likely as not, depending on their condition – the “local” may get first dibs. However, beds will not be kept vacant “just in case”. “It just wouldn’t make economic sense.”

Also, nursing homes are now becoming an outdated service. In NHS jargon, its the future direction of travel for patients to remain in their own homes, assisted by staff and new technology. A bit like the model already being funded by The League of Friends. According to its records of funding for its ‘End of Life Care’ programme for years.

One official who dare not be named for fear of reprisals from the CVHT spokesman, Martin Bamford, told the WW:

“An outmoded scheme – a dinosaur – is being foisted on the town of Cranleigh. Two Monolithic buildings that will tower over Whisker Drive, all because the Charity clings like a limpet to the wreckage of a disappearing dream which has now morphed into a money spinner for developers”. The whistleblower claimed the parish council had been duped, as it was never its intention to support a private care-home provider on land once owned by the parish. Neither was it residents’ intention that the site be used for residential accommodation when hundreds of “affordables” are currently under construction in the town.”

“Some, purporting to be the saviours of Cranleigh, should hang their heads in shame. The winners here are: the health authority, SCC, and a billionaire health provider – AC-ONE Mr Chai Patel.

The losers? – local residents who were duped into parting with their cash. Many of whom would never be able to afford a private nursing home bed or take advantage of the social care community beds they’re money has funded!

So Jodie Kidd thinks it’s a hoot to break into Dunsfold Aerodrome and race down the runway to demonstrate how daring-do and cool she is to her 37,000 followers on Instagram.

https://www.instagram.com/jodiekiddoffical/?hl=en

Really, Jodie – you must be kidding?

Do you actually think it’s clever – or for that matter sane – to abuse your knowledge of the Aerodrome to tell every petrol head in the country how they can sneak into an active aerodrome under the radar – no pun intended! – and tear down the runway, at the risk of colliding with a plane and causing a major incident in the process?! You might look like a bimbo but do you really want to reinforce that image by acting like one?

We know your life is a bit of a car crash – we’ve lost count of the failed relationships! – but that doesn’t mean you have to incite others to behave as recklessly as you.

You’re 40 years old and have been around the block a few times, not 14 – and just starting out! 

In the meantime, if the Dunsfold Developer has any sense, it will ban you from the Aerodrome before you do someone a serious injury with your childish antics!

Meanwhile, as you admitted, on camera, to breaking and entering perhaps Surrey Police might like to stage a high profile arrest and post that on THEIR Instagram account in order to deter other boy racers from trying to emulate you …

 Asian Hornet Sighting In Guildford – could it be that the Waverley Web has struck!

While it is smaller than our native European hornet, it can make very large nests and it also stings, so the public should be very cautious and not disturb the nests but report it straight away.

Screen Shot 2018-11-07 at 16.07.08.png

by Hugh Coakley of the amazing Guildford Dragon.

As reported last year (Beekeeper’s Notes April ’17; Foreign Invaders from Europe), the fear of an invasion of the Asian hornet is one step closer with a sighting now in Slyfield, Guildford.

Beekeeper Mark Seabrook, who works in premises on the Slyfield Industrial Estate, was more than surprised to see a dead hornet on the floor and, on closer inspection, for it to be an Asian hornet.

Mark said: “It was not something that I expected to ever actually see in Guildford. I keep bees so I do look out for such things but to see it on my workshop floor was a shock.

“It is difficult to know where it came from, whether it is from a local nest or came in on a transporter from around the country or even in a parts container from abroad.”

Mark has reported the finding to the DEFRA Non Native Species secretariatand to the Guildford Beekeeper’s Association.

Marilynne Bainbridge, who chairs the Guildford branch of the National Beekeepers’ Association, said: “It is very worrying for bees and beekeepers. There have been quite a few sightings now with the closest being in the neighbouring county of Hampshire where four nests were destroyed very recently.

“Beekeepers and the public need to be on the alert for this destructive invader and to report it to alertnonnative@ceh.ac.uk immediately.”

The Pest Control News reported last year that there had been a confirmed sighting in North Devon.

 

 

 

Oh Dear! What can the matter be? Guildford Tories off to a depository?

It launches a Gala for Government Minister but nobody wants to be there!

Screen Shot 2018-11-28 at 14.00.58.png

Apparently the Guildford Conservative Group – which includes the wealthy East Waverley – has cancelled its Gala dinner due to poor ticket sales! And it is moving its Guildford HQ to… WOKING … the town Tory controlled Guildford Planners have told to … shove its unmet housing need where monkeys put their nuts!

MP Anne Milton’s buddy in the Education Ministry – Secretary of State Damian Hinds has now been given the night off – because only 50 people bought tickets. No doubt local Tories pi**ed off with Brexit, and the fact that local schools are putting out begging bowls for pens and toilet rolls,  boycotted the £60 a-head event? Though we heard that all the local fee-paying schools are all doing nicely by flogging off their playing fields so they can afford such necessities. 

TT’s were not even encouraged to attend after being told that – “Mr Hinds was at the forefront of planning for our country’s future and the skills needed to compete in a post-Brexit world.” The Group says scrapping the event, boasting such a high profile guest speaker reflected badly on the organisation.

Oh well! It’s an ill wind that blows no good at least he gets an evening in by the fire with the wife and kids? Not forgetting – we here at the WW get a refund?

OH! BUT THINGS GET WORSE!

The Guildford Association needs such fundraising jolly’s to fill local coffers with £10,000 in time for what it describes as  the forthcoming “all-out election campaign?” Which one is that?!

bobsmithDon’t worry, Chairman Bob Hughes has a plan in the face of such austerity! The Guildford Tory Hub is schlepping ten miles over to Chobham Road, to Woking’s Tory HQ leaving its’ comfortable offices on the Loseley Park Estate, home of the Lord Lieutenant Major More-Molyneux to downsize to a new bunker. Chairman Bob Hughes who runs the Guildford Tories from his business email at charity Sight for Surrey, says “we will have some limited storage space and a printer.” Saying, it will only cost £5,000 a year plus it may rent a small storage unit for an extra few hundred pounds a year.”

Oh – who is the President of Bob’s charity Sight for Surrey? None other than Michael More-Molyneux, Lord Lieutenant of Surrey and Torie’s former landlord. No difficulties there then?
He stressed the Tory Group must use its resources wisely saying 
“we are in the 21st Century, we don’t need separate offices in Guildford.”

MY, MY HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN? It’s austerity darling.

 

 

 

 

Your Waverley does the business on the borough’s heavy duty dog doo.

Featured

In line with other local authorities, ‘Your Waverley’ is taking draconian steps to stop the menace of dog doo which is spoiling our towns, villages and… the countryside.

Ever wondered why there is so much of it about these days? Then ponder no longer.

 

Mary_McKeith.jpg

Is Mary our very own Gillian McKeith?
A Professor of Poo?
After all, You Are What You Eat -which applies to doggies-doo too!

 

This week Mary Foryszewski ‘YW’s’ dog doo guru  – and owner of the successful canine business – Pawfect Dog School gave her colleagues on the Environment Overview & Scrutiny Committee – a little lesson in the subject of … dog poo.

She told colleagues, who however hard they tried, just couldn’t conceal their amusement,   there were now 9 million dogs in the UK – and why there was more poo.

Because dogs digestive systems are not designed to eat commercial dog food! If you put more rubbish in, more rubbish comes out. Many of you will remember years ago when you used to be able to be able to kick it {Poo} and it used to disintegrate because they ate bones, it doesn’t any more because they eat rubbish, she said!

Oh dear – it that that howling bark of commercial dog food manufacturers we hear enveloping  Waverley Towers? Thank goodness Councillor and Deputy Mayor Mary is covered by partial privilege? 

She continues, to say if you looked in her pocket it would hold two or three poo bags. To which her wisecracking neighbour, Councillor Peter Isherwood grinning from ear to ear, piped up – “empty I hope.”   Continuing undeterred,  she outlined why it was necessary for the council to introduce measures and subsequent fines across the borough. Measures that would affect many, due to the actions of a few dog owners who spoiled it for responsible owners. She also mentioned there had been more responses from the public on the subject of dog poo than there had been to the Local Plan.

That’s one thing we at the WW can say about the residents of Waverley they have their priorities in the right order – don’t they?

Officer Richard Homewood said policing the nuisance would be targetted to areas where most nuisances occurred, following complaints from the public, saying everyone recognised it was impossible to monitor everywhere. 

Several Councillors said they didn’t want to see – council employees – “lurking in the bushes.” However, Councillor Ross Welland saw absolutely no reason why dogs shouldn’t be let off the lead, in places like Blackheath in the Surrey Hills?

He is obviously unaware that the villagers there are now calling their once beautiful Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty – a dog sh*t toilet – for hundreds of dog walkers, some of whom are professional dog walkers taking out as many as eight dogs out at a time!

Councillor By-Pass Byham, who never By-Passes litter or dog poo on his Bramley patch – was just a bit concerned, that the council may not have “solid grounds” for imposing fines of up to £1,000 if owners’ didn’t have enough bags, hoping no-one would end up in jail? Officers assured him this was highly unlikely.

If the Executive, followed by Full Council agree, a blanket ban on dog fouling will be introduced across the borough in the next few weeks.

HANG ON TO YOUR WIG YOUR HONOUR. WAVERLEY COUNCIL WILL BE BACK IN COURT TO FIGHT YET ANOTHER DAY TO SAVE ITS LOCAL PLAN.

Featured

supremejudgepow.jpg

If you don’t at first succeed try, try, try, and try, again and again?  Protect our Waverley and the Campaign for the Preservation of Rural England hope to persuade yet another Judge in the Court of Appeal to grant them leave to appeal. Then no doubt next time .. to the Supreme Court, the Pope and then Th Almighty?!

‘The battle to stop the development of Dunsfold Aerodrome is over,’ claims POW. But, the war with Waverley is not over yet.

Says POW:

‘there is nothing further we can do to prevent this controversial housing development after losing our legal challenge in the High Court.’

Capt’n Bob Lies, Chairman of the motley crew, claims,

‘It will be a huge disappointment to residents in the Eastern villages and in Guildford and Godalming that the approval for the development of Dunsfold Aerodrome will proceed.’

Typical POW. Typical Capt’n Bob. Utterly graceless in defeat!

Having poured over the Alfold Parish Council’s accounts, one curious regular reader did a spot of maths and sent us the following:

At the last census, Waverley Borough had a population of circa 123,000 and, as we all know, POW likes to boast ad nauseum that it ‘represents a very large and continually growing number of concerned local residents.’

Like hell it does! According to Crystal Tipps Weddells’ cash books. She banked

99 donations…

for POW’s campaign during 2017/18.  If you discount a single, measly donation by POW themselves and nine contributions from the Parishes – which came from their Precepts, not the voting public – that goes down to…

just 89 donations from members of the Waverley public.

Now, correct us if we are wrong, but surely that means…

… a mere 0.07% of Waverley residents dipped into their pockets to support POW and its aims? 

So much for POW claiming to represent ‘a very large and continually growing number of concerned local residents’ … laugh, We nearly peed our pants when our readers’ calculator spewed out …

0.07%!!!

So having wasted shed-loads of Taxpayer funds on behalf of 0.07% of Waverley residents it doesn’t even have the humility to offer the other 99.3% of local residents an apology for the many hundreds of thousands of pounds it has cost them, at a time when local services are being cut to the bone.

Adding  insult to injury, these publically funded wastrels have the cheek to announce in the same breath that it will join the CPRE in seeking leave to appeal in the Court of Appeal against the High Court’s decision that Waverley’s housing requirement, as set out in its Local Plan Part 1 for 590 houses per annum should be maintained, including 83 to cover Woking’s perceived unmet need!

Screen Shot 2018-07-14 at 00.58.39Brace yourselves! Here comes another major legal challenge that, if given the go-ahead will cost the Waverley taxpayer (yes, that’s you!) another shed load of money!

Our suggestion for POW: pack it in and concentrate on an argument you stand a chance of winning: the erection of a bloody great hanger on a green field outside the Aerodrome you so detest.

Or better still,  for all our sakes sod off and give this borough a break.

Why doesn’t Godalming Town Council have a planning committee?

Featured

 

GTC__CBA.jpgAll the major towns in ‘Your Waverley’ have a dedicated planning committee – including here in Farnham – Haslemere and Cranleigh. Even the small rural villages have either dedicated planning committees or public meetings where planning applications are considered – in public?

So why not in Godalming?

Milford Golf Course 23112018

Our interest in the planning function of Godalming Town Council was sparked off by the letter featured on the link above.

Funny, we thought, funny …   a major town, which hosts Waverley Towers and where there is a huge amount of development presently underway and even more proposed in the future? But no planning committee?

Even more puzzling? This paragraph from GTC’s new boy Councillor Paul Follows’ letter where he tells his fellow councillors of his, and residents concerns over the proposal to build on land at Milford Golf Course. A development that will have implications for Godalming’s overloaded road network and its infrastructure.

Cllr. Denis Leigh (Waverley Borough Council, Milford Ward)
Cllr. Bob Upton (Waverley Borough Council, Milford Ward)
Cllr. Gillian McCalden (Witley Parish Council, Chair)
Cllr. Tony Sollars (Witley Parish Council, Planning Committee Chair)

 

“My intent is to have this application reviewed by Godalming Town Council (GTC) to record a formal opinion before it goes to the Waverley Joint Planning Committee – and it is my hope that you might support that endeavour by writing to the Chairman of the Godalming Town Council Policy and Management Committee (Cllr Stefen Reynolds) to that end.

We, unfortunately, have no dedicated planning committee at GTC and as such, I am an opposition councillor asking the majority party chair for this to be added to the town council agenda – as you can imagine there is no guarantee that will happen and as such your support would be greatly appreciated!”

We have just learned that astoundingly the Tories abolished the Planning committee because quite simply they couldn’t be bothered. Their reason was that because so many of them are twin hatted – ie Waverley Councillors as well – then they would take the decisions and make the case at the meeting that mattered, rather than holding a trivial town council meeting, in front of the voting fodder, and duplicating their efforts.
They then said they would add significant planning items to other agendas, at the request of members. And an application in a neighbouring parish may not interest most of the council, hence Paul Follows lobbying for support with other Conservatives.

Surely, any self-respecting council -at the grassroots of local democracy – would want to hear its residents’ views on a planning application which affect their lives? Even a minor extension, can have a huge impact. So why don’t they review each and every planning application – allowing residents to have their say?

So Godalming Tories win the WW award for most “Can’t Be Arsed” Council this year.

The temperatures rising.

THE HEAT IS ON

The shadow’s high on the darker side
Behind the doors, it’s a wilder ride
You can make a break, you can win or lose
That’s a chance you take when the heat’s on you
When the heat is on

Oh-wo-ho, oh-wo-ho
Caught up in the action I’ve been looking out for you
Oh-wo-ho, oh-wo-ho
(Tell me can you feel it)
(Tell me can you feel it)
(Tell me can you feel it)

The heat is on (yeah) the heat is on, the heat is on
It’s on the street, the heat is on (I can feel the fire)
The heat is on (flames are burning higher)
The heat is on (baby can’t you feel it)
Yeah, it’s on the street
The heat is on (I can feel it in the fire)
The heat is on (flames are burning higher)

The heat was certainly on – cooking on gas, according to our followers  – at the last meeting of Alfold Parish Council, when concerned residents rocked up with the intention of getting to the bottom of the Parish Council’s new role as cash collectors for Waverley’s worried well-to-do?

Unfortunately, Clerk Crystal Tipps-Weddell – had been less than diligent in distributing the requested information, giving only a chosen few,  no time to plough through pages of donations. Fine, if you’re an accountant or someone familiar with analysing spreadsheets at a glance, but not so fine if you’re Joe Public whose only experience of columns of figures is pouring over your monthly bank statement from Lloyds – or, in the case of Waverley’s worried well-to-do, Messrs Coutts & Co! 

Concerned of Alfold hadn’t got to grips with the facts and figures but, no doubt, that was the whole point of the ruse orchestrated by Cash Collectors in-Chief Crystal Tipps and Nic Pigeon. Treat em mean and keep em keen –  telling residents if they want answers – “go back and read all the past minutes.”  Presumably, they want to stay shtumm about the affluent’s effluent?

What was absolutely staggering was the fact that between 20 April and 15 September 2017,  Alfold PC ********d  on POW’s behalf a staggering £246,073.45. In a mere five months! So they were averaging a cleanup rate of £49,214.69 per month! No wonder Crystal Tipps claimed £26.14 in parking fees and £40.04 in postage, she must have been running from bank to post office on a daily basis at the height of her money moving exploits!

Equally interestingly, Alfold PC banked 99 donations in total during that period, which made the average donation £2,485. However, as you might imagine, that was far from the case! Most of the donations were for considerably more, with the most popular sums donated by individuals being £500, £2,500 and £5,000. One or two high rollers (or do we mean developers?!) stumped up £20,050 and £10,000 respectively and there were several dups at circa £7,500 a poop – oops! We meant to say pop!

POW themselves contributed a measly £3,000! Talk about all mouth and no trousers – or, bearing Stacey Strumpette in mind, all fur coat and no knickers!

The ‘Dirty Dozen’ Parish Councils that stumped up for the Public Inquiry into Dunsfold Park, decreased to Ocean’s Seven (or, in this case, Little Britton’s Seven!) during this period, contributing £39,100 between them, as follows:

Alfold                  £10,000

Busbridge PC      £5,000
Chiddingfold PC £5,000
Dunsfold PC        £5,000
Hambledon PC   £6,000
Loxwood PC        £3,100
Shalford PC         £5,000
Wonersh PC       £10,000

The moral of this tale: If Capt’n Bob Lies and Little Britton persist in their delusion that a Planning Judge doesn’t understand planning law and decide to pop along to the Court of Appeal TO-DAY and plead poverty – again! – we strongly recommend that the Dunsfold Developer, the Secretary of State and Waverley Borough Council point the Judge to their quite remarkable money-raising powers. If this bunch of Bozos can raise on average £49,214.69 per month, there’s no reason on earth why they shouldn’t pick up the tab for the fights they pick, instead of leaving it to US, the Waverley Tax Payer to run along behind them poop-a-scooping their dirty little dump it all on the taxpayer habits!

Talking of Stacey Strumpette, rumour has it the Dunsfold resident may have attended the Parish Council meeting? 

Apparently,  Stacey was pouring over a copy of Alfold Parish Council’s Cash Book, trying to identify which initials were who – we’re told Crystal Tipps had, by a sleight of hand, failed to make a note of the names of donors, referring to them instead – much to Stacey’s chagrin – only by their initials, if at all! Our Stacey enquired, hopefully, into one particular donation of £12,100.00 that had caught her eye and looked terribly deflated when she was told this was just a lazy and inept (our words, not Crystal Tipps’ we hasten to add!) bulk donation posting, so could have been from any Tom, Dick or Harriette – not to mention one of any number of desperate developers keen to stop Dunsfold Park in its tracks.

For those of you who are wondering how Alfold Parish Council spent the dosh, wonder no more, just to give you a little flavour:

£85,592.49 on Barton Willmore Planning Consultants
£6,000.00 on ‘professional fees’ for Victoria Hutton of 39 Essex Chambers
£10,102.89 on Motion Consultants Transport Consultancy Services
£10,828.65 on David Huskisson Associates Landscape Expert Witnesses
£64,070.00 legal representation by 39 Essex Chambers

Rumour has it Dunsfold’s Stacey is now considering a change of profession – or, failing that, a change of stomping ground! Goodbye Dunsfold, Hello Inns of Court. Anything Victoria can do, Stacey reckons she can do too – with a little practice … or is it practise!!!

Oh, and in answer to the member of the public who attended and was told by Little Britton “I am nothing whatsoever to do with POW!”

He was announced in his interview on BBC Surrey – as, yes, you guessed – the Deputy Chairman of POW. 

 

 

They’re off nice and early in Cranleigh? Campaigning for the 2019 local elections.

Featured

It’s girl power – where are Cranleigh’s blokes?

Or… perhaps not. As these Tory ladies are calling canvassing  by a new name it’s now called ‘surveying residents.’  And there were silly old us, thinking that surveying was the practice carried out by developers before they start covering the countryside in concrete?

Wannabe Waverley borough and Cranleigh parish councillors are stomping around the streets as they rev up in readiness for next May’s borough and parish elections. 

No point waiting for the starters’ gun is there? Get out their girls, start mixing with the voting fodder. By the  sounds of it all is going well according to the very ambitious – Ewhurst’s Angie of I’m a Cranleigh parish councillor, then a borough councillor – and I’m on my way up the greasy Tory pole to Westminster – because I bag loads of  dosh for them all over the Guildford and the East – Tory patch so I can become Annie’s replacement? But first – I have my eye on keeping the Tories in power at Waverley?

Don’t they have enough CRANLEIGH people over there to speak up for the New Town? Let us hope here in Farnham we can manage to stump up a few true locals?

We’ve heard over here there is a groundswell of Independent, Residents’ Associations and Liberal Democrat candidates out there seeking to snatch some of those seats in a bid to change the face of Waverley’s Tory dominance. Go girls go.
