Overgrown footpath photo

A lot of work has recently been carried out along many of our local pavements and is due to the hard work of our Parish Council and County Councillor, who have found additional funding despite severe cut backs by SCC for these services. Local residents should now find it much easier to make their way around the village, particularly those in wheelchairs and pushing buggies.


Watch out there about again! (Posted 21/01/2018)

House Intruder Alarms (Posted 11/01/2018)

Noisy house alarm cartoon

If your alarm is not set up correctly and keeps going off intermittently or stays on longer than the legal time span, it will become a nuisance to neighbours. More importantly, the alarm loses its value, in that people simply wont respond if it goes off....Please check and get it adjusted if necessary.
All alarm holders are invited to give Tandridge Council their key holder contact details on the following Audible Intruder Alarm - key-holder record form....(Click here) and select the 'Burglar alarms' tab.


Filter arrow - The Star Traffic Lights (Posted 11/01/2018)

Puzzled traffic light

Complaints have been received that the filter arrow for vehicles turning right from the A22 towards the A264 isn't working correctly. It should operate when there are three or more vehicles waiting to turn right. Any less than that and it wont operate. The authorities assume that vehicles wanting to turn right will do so immediately the way is clear, irrespective of whether the filter arrow is showing. Our Parish Clerk has alerted Surrey Highways because we want it working correctly before we get the deluge of vehicles that will be directed from the M23 through that junction in the coming weeks.

M23 - weekend closures early 2018 (Posted 21/12/2017)

Overnight weekend resurfacing work on the northbound section of the M23 between Junction 10 (Copthorne) and junction 9 (Gatwick) is scheduled for 4 weekends starting on Fri Jan 12th (10pm) and finishing on Mon Feb 5th (4am) 2018.
Highways England are going to divert all northbound traffic along the A264 to the A22 and then north to the M25.
Our local councillors asked why traffic cannot be diverted along the West Park Road, thus avoiding Felbridge. The answer? Traffic cannot be diverted from an A road to a B road!
Here is the link to Surrey CC Road and Transport website for more information...(Click here).

A22/A264 Traffic Lights (Posted 21/12/2017)

Well, the week came and went and we now have a new set of "integrated traffic lights". The company who carried out the work "did a good job in terms of hours the work and schedule. There were of course periods of complete traffic chaos (reports of 50 minutes from East Grinstead to Felbridge etc), thankfully, for much of the time, is was business as usual i.e. our usual traffic grid lock which Surrey Highways simply chooses to ignore!).
