Be careful what you wish for!


Cranleigh Chamber of Trade said on behalf of traders, well, perhaps only, some  traders –  that they wanted more footfall, so asked  their borough councillors  please, please, please keep giving consent for more homes and some of them – did!

Over  1,500 in the bag and plenty more to come!

Now, according to the Waverley Web’s Cranleigh followers – the HGV movements thundering through the village are now outdone by UK Power Networks’ vehicles,  cones/barriers and traffic lights clogging up the high street. Now,  some traders, are upset that the works set to continue throughout August are badly affecting their businesses. Some say  they have lost more than 80% of their normal trade, others scythe place is dead.   Motorists are avoiding Cranleigh new town like the plague, saying it is practically useless trying to get from A to B. It can take as long as 30 minutes to travel the length of the high street and it’s quicker to travel to `Horsham. UKPN says work should   be completed early in  September – earlier if possible.


IMG_0073However, yesterday, matters were made even worse when there was a massive power failure and several thousand homes were without electricity.  Oh my! and the real building work to create the New Town hasn’t even started yet! The power cut affected postcodes GU6, GU7, GU8, and RH 12 and RH 3. However, Cranleigh High Street was seemingly  unaffected.

Still you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs, so they say, and an engineer told one passer-by. “Think yourselves lucky we are here on this job, if we hadn’t Cranleigh would have been blacked out by Christmas.” UK Power network are now investigating the high voltage overhead electricity line fault which caused the cuts which affected 1,223 of its customers. 


It never rains but it pours, so they say!


This week earth movers moved onto the Berkeley homes site in Knowle Lane which will be closed to all traffic  later next week.



‘Julia, Julia,’ give us your answers do?



As Farnham residents call for a postponement of Blightwells our Julia carries on regardless!  When actually is the re-development of East Street going to start?


  • Have the road closure and stopping up orders been made? Orders which should be consulted upon? 
  • IS a planning application in the process of being submitted?
  • Where are the plans for the proposed construction of an access bridge?
  • How can Crest Nicholson have commenced and secured a consent – for which they have not yet submitted the plans?

We’re intrigued – OK, we’re not, we’re actually BURSTING – to know what “serious personal and professional allegation”’ has been made against Councillor Foryszewski!

Here she is in action:  Making a statement on why she is absenting herself from the meeting of the joint Planning Committee of  Waverley Borough Council.

So, if anyone out there has any information relating to Waverley’s answer to The Forsyth Saga, we’re all ears. Older readers may recall The Forsyth Saga and the way the nation shut down each Sunday night for the transmission of the most rivetting series on TV during the days before video recorders, DVD players and iplayer … Pubs closed and the streets were deserted … the Church rescheduled Evensong so worshippers could be in front of their TVs for the next installment!

OK, we know we’re getting a bit carried away but it’s helped to enliven a rather dull Mondy  morning here at the Waverley Web’s HQ, now that all the shouting over two Public Inquiries at once has died down!

Behind every copper there’s a ‘Civvie.’


  Screen Shot 2017-07-29 at 12.15.17.png 

The oft-forgotten backbone of the Police Service is the Police Staff, affectionately known as the ‘bloody civvies.’


Many people don’t realise it but the relationship between officer and civvie’s can often be a very intense one. At the coal face they frequently work closely together and almost rely on each other equally.  For example, Police Officers have to rely on and respect the skills and judgement of the Control Room staff. Nobody wants to split the traffic in rush hour for 5-10 miles only to find a civil dispute over a hedge at the end of it, or NOT be given the true status of an active ‘Suspects On’ or ‘Officer Requires Assistance” shout. Teamwork.  They are part of ‘The Team’.

What gets forgotten is that the ‘bloody civvies’ have suffered equally, or more, during ‘The Cuts’.

I don’t have the greatest amount of time for the Corp Comms or HR staff. They tend to inhabit their own world, but the Comms Staff, Intel Assistants, Analysts, CID Clerks  (showing my age now) and the like can rightly regard themselves as ‘important’ even ‘indispensable’.

Rightly, much is made of the ever-shrinking number of front line officers. The cuts to the Police Staff make just as much difference but often pass without comment.

Well, I, and others, am commenting.

Nationally the Police Service has lost almost 20,000 Police Support Staff (NOT including PCSOs and Specials) since 2010, and that looks something like this

However, in attempt to minimise Police Officer losses,  the Met has lost proportionately more, NEARLY HALF since 2010, and that looks very much like this

It’s tempting to make a politically incorrect comment at this point, but surely ANYBODY can see that no organisation can lose almost half of its staff and continue to function as though nothing had happened.  This has to be hurting the Met in every area of its business, on top of the Police Officers they have already lost and will continue to lose.

THIS is why there is a #CrisisInPolicing

Come on Mr Khan, London can’t go on like this.  Neither can the rest of England and Wales.  It’s about  time that the Mayors, PCCs, Commissioner and Chief Constables joined together, and with one voice, point out to Theresa May and Amber Rudd that CutsHaveConsequences. Not just boots on the ground, but behind the scenes.  I know of at least one Police Station where the Police Staff have been cut so hard that a warranted Police Officer has had to be taken off the streets to do the job that the redundant civvie had been doing. How mad is that?

  1. Over the years seen so many of our civilian family been cast aside.
    We lost our canteen staff, cleaners, Section House staff and so many in our admin/support that did so much to make to make the Police such a great family to be a part of.
    They all contributed to the efficiency and effective service that the Police provided to the public.
    We are very much the lesser without them.

  2. Good analysis. Trouble is, The Establishment, which includes all Parties…. and the Masons who encompass (?) all Parties, let alone Common Purpose ( google Common Purpose scam) all combine to divert everyday attention from reality. You, of all people, will know the sinister grip of Masonry. Some Masons are OK….. others are irrevocably gripped….. way beyond the bonhomie and everyday play of local contacts and good works. That dark path has controlled many a Police outcome…. along with Coroners, Courts and numerous cover-ups. I am ex-Army, I defend The Thin Blue Line …….. please recognise that ranking coppers are looking for a Gong, Knighthood, Outrageous Pension and a station in life for the submissive her indoors. Too harsh?

Eastern villages’ county councillor hit by a Touch of Frost.


Now listen here Queen Victoria, Surrey County Councillor for the Eastern Villages.  Don’t you start wearing your husband’s mantle – just because he was ditched by Farnham after being ditched by his Guildford Conservative Constituency mates. Is it pay back time at County Towers? Because – Be Afraid – Be very afraid! of upsetting ‘Your Waverley’ Councillor Pat Frost.  And… upset she most certainly  is … because not only have you ditched the long-awaited Consultation on the pedestrianisation of our town, you called A Touch of Frost and her side-kick Carole Cockburn –  VETERANS!

Off with your head we hear them cry!


‘Wouldn’t be fair’ she exclaimed, ‘to spend the council taxpayers’ money on funding on a consultation, when there are insufficient county funds available to implement the pedestrianisation scheme.’ Oh Dear QV – maybe, just maybe, you should have checked with your head financial honchos back at the ranch – because according to our ever-increasing band of informants – they intend to stump up an amazing… 


Just in case Queen Vic, you don’t get to read that amazing Farnham Newspaper – that, now, thanks to the arrival of the Waverley Web, everyone gets to read we have included it below:   Oh! and by the way our Patsy was not just – ‘not pleased’ or ‘even not cross’ – she is ‘very angry.’ So… be warned – having just lost her county council seat to one of those pesky Farnham Residents’ she is not in a mood to be messed with! Get it!

Oh! and tell your husband to see if he can find someone who will take him on in… and then you won’t have to kick us here in Farnham. Say… Hampshire…Dorset… or even perhaps… Kensington & Chelsea?

Here it is for all to read:20626405_10155559833966613_8714108156926593252_o.jpg





So said Rumpole (AKA Christopher Katkowski QC) when speaking of his client’s and their proposal to build 1800 homes at Dunsfold Aerodrome.


The Public Gallery at Waverley Borough Council was full to bursting on the last day of the Public Inquiry into the Dunsfold Park planning application.

The Stinch – speaking on behalf of his clients, PoW & the Parishes, made much of the fact that his clients represented 20,000 residents. As with much of his argument, in his closing submissions both he and his clients  stretched  the truth so far Incy Wincy, from his position – somewhat precariously balanced in the coving of

animated-spider-image-0157the chamber – was astonished that their noses didn’t grow like Pinnocchio’s! Though of course, he did tell one very significant TRUTH AT LAST – that DUNSFOLD PARK IS PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED LAND – ERGO; IT IS A BROWN FIELD SITE!

Rumpole, with supreme dignity and just hint of sarcasm, dispelled the myth put forward that everyone in Waverley was against the scheme when he spoke of ‘the silent majority.’   Those, who, unlike the worried-well-to-do (all 30 odd of them)  packed into Waverley’s stalls had  jobs to go to, and a  crust to earn?  

Lynch The Stinch!

The Stinch, spoke at length – boy, did he go on and on  for TWO whole hours!!! Incy  reckons he  had a bet on with his Junior as to how many times he could mention the word ‘unsustainable’ in his closing arguments. 

 Both Rumpole and Waverley BC’s barrister, Wayne Beglan –  succinctly argued much of  The Stinch’s rhetoric  was refutable.  Rumpole even wondered aloud, “If the Rule 6 Parties have not been here as their case unravelled?”  Now that was a bit below the belt – albeit entirely justified!

The ladies who lunch obviously turned  down invitations to lunch instead cheered   on the  Stinch, from the sidelines.  The stalls awash with florals, and gummy smiles, sage nods and gentle “Hear, hear’s” accompanied much of his  performance and when, at last,  he reached the end of his perorations, there was a resounding round of applause from the local ladies.

Everyone was in dire need of a strong, black, coffee by the time The Stinch wrapped up! – PoW’s clash & clout brigade shimmied over and attempted to cosy up to the Dunsfold Developer – by which, we mean, representatives of Trinity College Cambridge, who turned up for the finalé. It was two-faced smiles all round as, we assume, Messrs Britten & Lees (POW) tried to explain their case to one of the wealthiest institutions in the country, “No, hard feelings, old boys. But could you just go and develop in some other borough; how about where you come from – Cambridge, isn’t it?”

Incy found it kind of odd  that neither Charles William Orange Esq (AKA OJ) nor Nik Pidgeon (AKA Not-in-my-Columbier) were present. Two of the key architects of PoW & the Parishes’ case have not been seen in public since they were outed as Nimby Developers who, having spent years parking their concrete mixers in other peoples’ back yards now want to move in on their own patch and dig up the village greens of Awfold and Hascombe. KERCHIING! Apparently no pigeons flew into the Springbok Inquiry?

Strange that? Should we, instead, start digging up their patios – ooops! Pardon us! We should say terraces as, clearly, Charles William Orange Esq wouldn’t have anything so pedestrian as a patio at his Grade II Listed Georgian des res!

Maybe, the police should be putting out an All Points Bulletin for Messrs Orange and Pidgeon just in case they’ve been lynched by a mob of angry Alfold residents …

Thankfully ‘YW’s Mr Beglan, , made by far the better and, thankfully, shorter speech, which, – unsurprisingly – didn’t go down nearly so well with the noises off. 


The Inspector was forced to remonstrate with the worried-well-to-do  at one point when they began to chortle derisively at one of Mr Beglan’s remarks. Clearly they left their manners in reception. Suffice to say, Mr B’s  closing submissions ran for less than an hour and were all the better for it – definitely a case of less is more!

By the time Rumpole’s  spoke for  the Big D, the stalls had thinned out considerably. Perhaps the worried-well-to-do had taken umbrage at the Inspector’s ticking-off or maybe they just weren’t interested in listening to “the evidence and the facts,” which, Rumpole insisted, “must prevail over fantasy and fiction!”

He asked the Inspector;  “To report to the Secretary of State based on the evidence you have heard. I say this because the Rule 6 Parties’ closing submissions, characteristically and literally, completely ignore the many concessions made in Cross Examination by their witnesses on a host of fundamental matters. It is as if the weeks between the Rule 6 Parties’ opening and closing submissions never happened. But they did! It is as if the Rule 6 Parties have not been here as their case unravelled. But, rest assured, our closing submissions will be based on what actually happened at this Inquiry rather than blithely ignoring it!

For the evidence and facts must prevail over fantasy and fiction!”

Later Rumpole said, “We note that the Rule 6 Parties have, today, written to the Secretary of State, requesting his intervention, in the Local Plan process. Doubtless, the Council will be writing to the SoS to resist this, as will we. This is not the place to debate the lack of merit of their request, as it does not fall to you [the Inspector] to deal with it. I will simply say that the Rule 6 Parties’ letter is characteristically misleading and myopic!

Tellingly, he went on to say,

“There is a deep hypocrisy about the Rule 6 Parties’ case on sustainability. A village on this site [Dunsfold Park] with the mix of uses and facilities proposed, coupled with bus services which are to be secured in perpetuity, would be considerably more sustainable than any of the villages in the parishes represented at this inquiry. In effect, the objectors are objecting to residents in the new village living markedly more sustainably than they do. I had originally written a good deal more about the rank hypocrisy of the Rule 6 Parties and then decided that politeness should prevail over emotion. However, having now listened to the Rule 6 Parties’ closing repeatedly describe proposals as ones involving ‘the dumping’ of people’ and ‘sink estates’, I consider it only right to add a few words. To describe the proposals in this way is shocking! But the very fact that the Rule 6 Parties speak in such terms shows what the planning system has to grapple with and face down here in Waverley.


Screen Shot 2017-08-04 at 09.53.44.png

In common with Mr Beglan, Rumpole’s closing arguments were short and succinct and completely at odds with The Stinch’s 60MPH delivery But, as Rumpole stressed. His client’s case was a simple, straightforward one! 

It was not a complex case and there was a “clear and easy route to the conclusion that permission should be granted.” In short and in summary, Rumpole stated, “There is a real sense of momentum in favour of our proposals. Their time has come.”

But has it? Only time will tell and it will be a nail-biting few months for all concerned whilst they await the Secretary of State’s decision.

Meanwhile, in case you’re thinking it’s nearly all over, it isn’t!! The Stinch is already threatening further legal challenges and much resistance on the part of PoW and the Parishes should the Secretary of State dare to rule against his clients! No change there then!

In the meantime hold onto your hard hats – and watch those HGV’s and earth movers roll across our countryside!

The Waverley Web predicts even more public money going down the pan!

So it’s…

Business as usual!

Yet another brilliant article from the Farnham Herald.

A little bit of Summer Silliness.



Picking up on our school holiday’s theme of well-loved children’s stories, one correspondent tells us  that David Elvin QC,  the barrister acting for the Thakeham Thugs, over there in Cranleigh, bears a striking resemblance to Mr Toad of Toad Hall, whilst Christopher Katkowski QC, the barrister acting for the Dunsfold Developer, over in Godalming, could be likened to the Badger.

Coincidently, Messrs Elvin & Katkowski share Chambers, both being QCs at Landmark Chambers.

WW has discovered that David Elvin –  is described on the Chamber’s website by clients, variously, as ‘a giant’, ‘a heavy weight’ and ‘a man who gets results’ has taken a strikingly bombastic approach to the Thakeham Thug’s case.

Whereas, across the borough, in Godalming, Mr Katkowski, is described on the same website as ‘very practical, calm and accessible. Just phenomenal.’

Far be it from The Waverley Web to offer advice to such illustrious Silks but perhaps it’s time Badger took Toad in hand before he not only annihilates poor old Awfold (everyone has now taken to spelling the name incorrectly) but made  so many enemies amongst the handful of residents who have turned out to hear him that  he has to be evacuated in a Kevlar Vest and helmet?

Screen Shot 2017-08-02 at 22.39.53.pngOf course, we’re thinking of a more gentle approach than Apocalypse Now, more of a bedtime story for our reader’s children.

Remember the scene in Chapter 6 of The Wind in the Willows when there’s a heavy knock on the door, which heralds the arrival of Badger in The Mole and the Water Rat’s parlour.

‘The Badger strode heavily into the room, and stood looking at the two animals with an expression full of seriousness’ and announced ‘with great solemnity’ that, “The hour has come!”

“What hour?” asked the Rat uneasily.

“Whose hour, you should rather say,” replied the Badger. “Why, toad’s hour! The hour of Toad! I said I would take him in hand as soon as the winter was well over, and I’m going to take him in hand today!”

 WW  thinks maybe it’s time for Mr Katkowski QC (AKA Badger) to hustle on over to The Arts Centre, and take Mr Elvin QC (AKA Toad of Toad Hall) in hand, before he crashes the motor car – or in this case the countryside! Picking up the story, after a hearty lunch in 140, the discussion will go something like this:

“Sit down there, Toad,” said the Badger kindly, pointing to a chair. “My friends,” he went on, “I am pleased to inform you that Toad has at last seen the error of his ways. He is truly sorry for his misguided conduct in the past, and he has undertaken to give up [defending the Thakeham Thugs] entirely and forever. I have his solemn promise to that effect. He has even promised to stop telling the Inspector that if the Dunsfold Park planning appeal is refused by the Secretary of State – Waverley’s Local Plan is DEAD, definitely D..E..A..D.”

“That is very good news,” said the Mole gravely. “But, if the Local Plan is DEAD, and has a huge black hole in it – perhaps all the green fields around Alfold will be all the more ripe for development… won’t they.”

“Very good news indeed,” observed the Rat dubiously, “if only – if only -“ He was looking very hard at Toad as he said this, and could not help thinking he perceived something vaguely resembling a twinkle in that animal’s still sorrowful eye.

“There’s only one thing more to be done,” continued the gratified Badger. “Toad, I want you solemnly to repeat, before your friends here, what you’ve fully admitted to me … just now. First, you are sorry for what you’ve done, and you see the folly of it all?”

There was a long, long pause. Toad looked desperately this way and that, while the other animals waited in grave silence. At last he spoke.

“No!” he said a little sullenly, but stoutly, “I’m not sorry. And it wasn’t folly at all! It was simply glorious!”

“What?” cried the Badger, greatly scandalized. “You back-sliding animal, didn’t you tell me just now, in there -“

“Oh, yes, yes, in there,” said Toad impatiently. “I’d have said anything in there. You’re so eloquent, dear Badger, and so moving, and so convincing, and put all your points so frightfully well – you can do what you like with me in there, and you know it. But I’ve been searching my mind since, and going over things in it, and I find that I’m not a bit sorry or repentant really, so it’s no earthly good saying I am; now, is it?”

“Then you don’t promise,” said the Badger, “never to touch [a Thakeham Thug’s Inquiry] again?”

“Certainly not!” replied Toad emphatically. “On the contrary, I faithfully promise that the very first [Thakeham Thug’s Inquiry to come my way again] poop-poop! off I go [with] it!”

WW pledges no more silliness, and we will report more of the Springbok Inquiry into Waverley Planners’ refusal to allow Care Ashore’s scheme to build 475 houses and more than double the size of  Alfold – once we have managed to scrape up more information.

The Big D’s final stretch.


The Dunsfold Park Inquiry reconvened yesterday to discuss the Planning Conditions and Section 106 Agreement and concluded with a site visit for the Inspector and various interested parties, including Beverley Weddell, Clerk to three of the 11 Parishes and an enthusiastic supporter of PoW. Also along for a ride on Dunsfold’s Big Dipper was  A’ Miss Dodeck’ as the Inspector called her,  along with Sarah Sullivan, of the new, highly suspect, Dunsfold Heritage Group.  No doubt Ms Sullivan  hoped  to spot and slap a heritage sticker on anything that was built pre 2016!

Surprisingly, it was all relatively painless, not least because it was Charlotte Web’s distinct  impression that PoW & the Parishes were bailing out water with a hole in their bucket. The Section 106 contributions (for the uninitiated that’s the dosh the Big D has to hand over for infrastructure IF  it finally gets to build anything

seemed generous to our eagle Screen Shot 2017-07-04 at 09.06.51.pngeye when compared to any other development in the area – so the moaners  had little to quibble over, however, it didn’t stop them trying!

Rumpole was irritated beyond belief that, despite promising to get a document  to everyone by Friday evening, PoW & the Parishes’  paper was a… ‘no show’ …  and was still absent at a.m Monday!  Eventually, the missive dropped into his inbox that night at 10pm  but without the courtesy of providing  the Inspector with a copy!   Result:  An adjournment to allow the Inspector to get up to speed!

Mr Lees of PoW seemed to think that was something to smirk about … God alone knows why. WWeb  suspected it was possibly due to PoW & the Parishes’ Mr Rice, ‘moving the deckchairs around on the Titanic’ in an attempt to justify his fat fee!

Having spun a web over a copy of the s106  we will now digest the detail, but a  brief glance revealed  that no other developer even comes close to dishing the dosh like Dunsold! We can’t decide whether the BigD should be congratulated or certified  for insanity, cos no other developer is digging anywhere near that deep!  Big D  makes other developer’s s106 contributions look miserly – or do we mean,  genius? 

After a week-end to refresh themselves, the same old, same old –  emphasis on the old! – locals were out in force in the stalls; all 11 of them! One dozed off before the coffee break and only three returned after. Post lunch they were down to two! Incy Wincy, who had taken over the watch from Charlotte Web, noted that they were going down faster than 10 Green Bottles! You just don’t find the stamina these days!

 Charles William Orange Esq (soon to be developer of the Parish of Hascombe) 


The Future’s bright – the future’s ORANGE.

was noticeable by his absence … strange that. He’s not been sighted in public since the Waverley Web outed him as a NIMBY Developer who’s had an epiphany and decided to build on green fields and green belt in his own back yard. Kerching![audiosrc=”″%5D%5B/audio%5D


Local resident and keen supporter of PoW – aren’t they all! – John Jeffries waddled up to the Inspector during the coffee break and bent his ear – so we’re told – about a further submission he’d made regarding the unsuitability of the roads and a conversation he’d had with one of the bus companies about it being impossible for them to run a punctual service because the roads were too narrow! Had a member of Team DP dared to accost the Inspector, PoW and the Parishes would, no doubt, have accused them of trying to nobble him and screamed ‘Foul!’ and ‘Mistrial!’

Kevin De’Anus, having finally escaped the clutches of the Thakeham Thugs Springbok Inquiry,  rocked up after lunch, but needn’t have bothered because it was all over bar the shouting! Just as well,  poor old, Dick De’Anus looked as if he’d had enough Inquiries to last him a lifetime.


Just once, Rumpole almost lost his cool, but, he reined it in and, with a world weary air, told the Inspector that, despite Pow & the Parishes’ oft repeated claim that Dunsfold Park was responsible for every adverse traffic issue and every HGV trip on the A281, that it was simply not the case. But,  he said, this ‘very silly claim’  was really beginning to get under his team’s skin! Even Mr Lies looked shame-faced  at being rumbled by Rumpole for such a blatantly stupid claim. That was a first for Mr Lies, looking ashamed, we mean not telling big fat pork-pies!

As  an aside, the Inspector asked someone to do a word search on the s106 document because Alfold was frequently misspelled as ‘Awfold’.  DON’T FRET Sir nobody gets it right!

Surrey & Sussex Police and Surrey County Council Highways rocked up in defensive mode, in case anyone wanted to mess with their very generous s106 benefits!  Entirely understandable as the Big D is now referred to as the Waverley/Guildford  CASH COW because it is being milked by everyone who wants to build  in the East.

 Does anyone else out there find it slightly odd that the Tory Tossers among POW and the parishes are being represented by The Stinch, a former Labour MP! 

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt!


This time it’s not a road Bramley’s By-Pass Byham needs it’s a brain By-Pass!

Because if a civic society stands up for the people it represents this is the abuse it receives  inside the rotten borough of ‘Your Waverley.’ Watch this: 


That’s what you get for screen-shot-2016-05-03-at-14-22-39

But the Cranleigh woman elected to convey  the very real concerns of the people who elected her, hits back. Just in case our readers wonder what the  ‘so-called threat’ was!  – IT WASN’T A THREAT IT WAS A PROMISE made  by  an organisation that has a mandate from the people of Cranleigh to speak up on their  behalf. The same village that  took a VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE in Waverley Borough Council.  Wonder Why?

This is Councillor Liz Townsend’s rejoinder – denying By-Pass Byham’s slur.  N.B readers please note: Councillor Townsend cannot vote, because she is not a member of the Joint Planning Committee – surprise, surprise!  BBB’s  disgraceful slur should be reported to the Monitoring Officer, Mr Roger Taylor 01483 523108. But don’t hold your breath folks because BBB can say what he likes, do what he likes, and insult his colleagues with impunity! However, the same does not apply to Farnham Residents’ Jerry Hyman! Because there are different rules in play at ‘YW’ dependent on which political party you represent.

JOB NO 1: For the new boy on the block Tom Horwood – clean up Waverley’s act and bring back public confidence in the authority you lead!


Below the mouldy toast is the so called ‘threatening letter’ that prompted BBB to say, ‘I’m not happy.’  You know what – neither are we! Screen Shot 2017-08-01 at 10.46.59.png

Letter dated 24-Jul-17 to Ms E Sims, WBC

‘Wen-am-I-leaving?’ … Has Gone!


The Waverley Web  wishes Paul Wenham a fond farewell and we bet the next CEO won’t provide  us with half so much fun.  What does anyone do with a name like Tom Horwood, the name of the new CEO?


Screen Shot 2017-07-29 at 09.52.48.png

‘Farewell my friend “Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodnight till it be morrow.”
― William Shakespeare,

SHE SAID:  Leader Julia Potts: – ‘I would like to think Paul for his work and commitment to Waverley over the past 16 years. Despite the significant achievements of the council over this period  we still face some very big challenges and we both agree  that a fresh perspective is needed to take the council forward.’

HE SAID: CEO Paul Wenham:“With the proposed budget and transformation plans highlighted in the Strategic Review we feel that it is now time to “pass on the baton” something I have mutually agreed with the Leader.”

WWeb Said:   ‘Don’t mention the Fraud.’ Don’t mention not mentioning the fraud – before the last borough election.’ Don’t mention East Street/Blightwells or asset grabbing: – Farnham’s Memorial Hall and recreation grounds, dumping the Gostrey Centre and other valuable assets into developer’s hands. Don’t mention a series of  Daft Local Plans, the Votes of No Confidence on his watch from Farnham and Cranleigh! The demise of ‘Age Concern,’ and other charities, or the mounting lack of trust between councillors and staff. But … more  important a diminution of democracy! – Allowing councillors and officers  to MEET AND MAKE DECISIONS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS SHUTTING OUT THE VERY PEOPLE – WHO PAY YOUR WAGES/PENSION!

Has Wen-Am-I-Leaving… Gone. Or just gone missing? It’s official – he’s GONE!

Aunty Elsie has been seen running around Waverley Towers bonnet in hand collecting the dosh for ‘Wen-Am-I-Leaving’s’ –  present. Perhaps, a cruise that his friends and colleagues have bought him to Busan where a new Korea awaits him. 

The Executive Director and Head of Paid Services Paul Wenham has finally, yes finally, achieved his heart’s desire – to spend more time…. with his final salary pension pot and his golden goodbye?
