Welcome!

The Carnival is over for another year. Congratulations to all those involved. Go to pages 4 and 7 for the roundup and put Saturday 14th June 2020 as we do it all over again. At the time of writing I am hopeful that our summer will have started. The Hampton Court Flower Show, Wimbledon fortnight and the Molesey Regatta would dearly love some blue skies. In this month s issue we look at the women of Wimbledon tennis, get an update on the Eco Park, and learn of the origins of Elmbridge Borough Council. Della Reynolds is again out and about as our roving reporter, and we offer some

July/August 2019 ideas to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Both the MRA and Dominic Raab also update on issues close to our hearts. Remember this a double issue. So see you again in September. Have a great couple of months.

TRUST, COMMUNICATION AND AN UNDERSTANDING OF OUR NEEDS The level of service from Harmes Turner Brown was fantastic and they delivered everything we needed. Letting your home can be daunting, we trusted HTB to find the right tenants for us within our timeframe and they did.

‘‘

They are very personal, you’re not just a sale - they are realistic, listen to your requirements, and go above and beyond to ensure they are met. I’ve recommended HTB to a few friends now and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again after the service we have just received.

COMMUNICATION WAS FANTASTIC We originally met Harnes Turner Brown as they have a prominent location within the High Street, so when we were looking for a property we said hello to the guys! The communication with Harmes Turner Brown was fantastic. They handled the process between the buyer and the seller fantastically. Anish Sabherwal Seller

IT’S JUST AN EASY PROCESS The level of service I’ve received from Harmes Turner Brown, for me personally, has been excellent. It’s really nice to be able to talk to the girls in the office. They are very friendly, doing everything you ask them to do and it’s just an easy process.

The lovely ladies of Moleshurst Women's Club are as much part of Molesey Carnival as Mr Mole himself. They have attended every Carnival, had stalls and been in every parade since it restarted in 1977. Who could forget the 'Here Comes the Girls' float!

Unfortunately, they had all their stall takings go missing at the end of Carnival day this year. Brian Cameron, the Molesey Carnival Chair, sprang into action and launched a crowdfund to raise the missing money. If he was fortunate enough to exceed the sum lost (ÂŁ300)- he decided pick a local charity to benefit from this wonderful goodwill. Needless to say that the good people of this community exceeded this target within two days. Ann Thompson and all of the Moleshurst Women would like to say a big thank you not only to Brian but to the whole community. Thank you Molehurst Women, may you light up the Molesey Carnival for many years to come. Moleshurst Women s Club raise funds to make grants to organisations whose goals are: To advance education and to provide facilities for recreation or other leisure-time occupation in the interests of social welfare with the object of improving the conditions of life for women in the area of benefit without distinction or political religious or other opinions.

The Women of Wimbledon Home-grown champions The Championships, Wimbledon is the most famous tennis event in the British sporting calendar. It was first contested in 1877 and played on outdoor grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) in the Wimbledon suburb of London, United Kingdom.

was a table tennis champion and he encouraged her competitive spirit. She played the famous Billie Jean King several times but never beat her until her win at Wimbledon. Haydon-Jones was also the first left-handed female singles player to win the championship.

The Ladies' Singles tournament began in 1884, and the women's game has developed massively over the last century. We are all familiar with the incredible Williams sisters, but our own Nation has a pretty impressive history in the Women's singles, which is often overlooked by the British media.

Virginia Wade was a maths graduate, famed for her powerful serve. She defeated Billie Jean King at the US Open, earning her first Grand Slam title. She went on to win the Australian Open in 1972, and in 1977, nearly a decade after her first victory, Wade would become Wimbledon's last British singles winner for 36 years. The year she won, defeating Dutch player Betty StĂśve at Wimbledon was the Queen's Silver Jubilee and Queen Elizabeth II herself was present to enjoy her victory.

Dorothy Round Little won her first title in 1934 — the same year as her British male counterpart Fred Perry also won his first. She won her second Wimbledon title at age 29 in 1937. A devout Christian, she often refused to play on Sundays. She published two books, Modern Lawn Tennis and Tennis For Girls. After her retirement in 1939 she worked as a coach, journalist, and president of the Worcester Lawn Tennis Club. Florence Angela Margaret Mortimer Barrett beat another English player Christine Truman Janes to become Wimbledon's women's singles champion in 1961. She was aged 29 and partially deaf.

It remains to be seen whether current British number one Johanna Konta can better her semi-final performance in 2017 to add her name to the list of amazing female British tennis players who have held the Wimbledon trophy aloft.

Ann Haydon-Jones had already won the French Open and U.S. Open twice before winning Wimbledon in 1969. She first showed her talent as a young girl. Her father To advertise call Paul on 07946 494288

Two minutes with Justin Hampton, Suez Plant Manager at the Eco Park When will the Eco Park be finished? Within the Eco Park, the anaerobic digestion facility has started hot commissioning. This means it s already processing food waste but as part of the commissioning, or testing, of the plant before the site is officially completed and handed over by the construction company for operational use. The commissioning process ensures the equipment is operating correctly and is expected to take a couple of months, so it should be finished later in the summer. The gasification facility has started accepting black bag waste to test the pretreatment equipment. This is the equipment that sorts the waste to remove any recyclables such as metal, or items that would be unsuitable to go into the gasification unit, such as bricks. It then shreds the waste to turn it into refuse-derived fuel that is then fed into the gasification unit. We are expecting the first refuse-derived fuel to go into the gasification unit in July. Again, commissioning is expected to take a couple of months. What were the plumes of smoke coming out of the building and chimney recently? The recent emissions were part of the refractory dry out and steam blowing activity. The refractory dry-out is where the inside of the gasification unit has to be heated slowly to avoid cracking (much like a kiln). This was done using oil burners as we haven t introduced waste yet, so there was a small amount of emissions from the chimney, which were similar to car exhaust fumes. The larger plumes that were seen coming from the building itself were steam. At times, this may have looked more grey than white. However, this is the same as heavy rain clouds looking grey due to the concentration of the steam rather than any fumes or emissions in the steam. The steam was from the steam blowing exercise, where it is To advertise call Paul on 07946 494288

pushed through all the pipes to clean them. If you ever see plumes coming from the building itself, it s just steam venting. All emissions are released through the chimney only and not through the building. Is this what it will look like when the site is operating? No, steam blowing is only part of the commissioning process. Normally the only thing you might see is a small amount of heat haze from the chimney, and occasionally a small amount of steam from the building when we start up or shutdown. How will we know what s in the emissions? The emissions will be monitored constantly, and the data will be reported to our regulator, the Environment Agency. We re also planning to put the emissions data on our website so you ll be able to see it for yourself. What s happening with the sign at the front? We re in discussion with Surrey County Council regarding the sign and plan to appeal the decision from Spelthorne Borough Council. Where can we get more information? We keep the Eco Park website updated regularly and I recommend you subscribe to the quarterly newsletter which will give you news and information about the site. We also published an FAQ document earlier in the year, which answers lots of important questions and can be found under the news section on the site.

About Justin Justin is the Plant Manager at the Eco Park and has worked for SUEZ for seven years. He holds a degree in Chemical Engineering with Environmental Protection and has over 20 years experience in the Fine Chemicals, Biofuel, Oil & Gas and Waste industries. He grew up in Ashford Common and has family and friends who live in Charlton Village and Shepperton.

The Origins of Elmbridge Borough Council The name Elmbridge appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Amelebrige, which is derived from the original name of the River Mole (Amele) or (Emley) and the old English word for a bridge (brige). In the AD 900s Surrey was divided into regional units known as Hundreds, which is the Saxon name for an administrative unit. This referred to an area of land enclosing one hundred households. The conquest of England by the Normans in 1066 brought about many changes in the local administration of the country. William the Conqueror claimed possession of most of the land, and the country was divided into Fiefs. The previous Shire or Counties system then becoming less important. During the Medieval period, local administration remained in the hands of the feudal aristocracy. It was Henry II who greatly expanded the separation of towns from the countryside, setting up selfgoverning boroughs. From the 16th century the individual counties were increasingly used as a unit of administration, and form a foundation for local government in England today. By 1888 it was clear that this fragmented system developed over the previous century, was not efficient and an attempt was made to impose a standardised system of local government. In 1894 the creation of a second-tier was made, and all administrative counties were divided into either rural or urban districts. At the beginning of the twentieth century local government in the Elmbridge area was run by several Urban District Councils: Esher and the Dittons, Molesey, Walton and Weybridge. In 1933 Esher was amalgamated with Molesey, and Cobham and Stoke were joined with Walton and Weybridge UDC. These in turn were the main secular successors to the medieval parishes of the same names. In 1965 a major county local administration reform in London was undertaken. The counties of London and Middlesex were abolished along with parts of Essex, Surrey, and Kent, and formed into a new county of Greater LonTo advertise email paul@villagematters.co.uk

don. An interesting exchange took place in 1970 when the councils administrating two, River Thames islands was changed. Thames Ditton Island was transferred from Greater London Council to Surrey, and Platt s Eyot Island transferred from Surrey to Greater London. The local government act of 1972 enforced the union of Esher Urban District Council with Walton and Weybridge UDC. On the 1st April 1974 the borough of Elmbridge was created, with an area of 96.3 km, and a population estimated that year of over 100,000.The council consists of forty-eight elected councillors, representing sixteen wards. The village of Claygate also has its own parish council, while the remainder of the borough has two rather than three tiers of local government. Responsibility for some designated services is with Surrey County Council, such as transport and social services. The new Elmbridge Council headquarters opened in the Civic Centre in 1991.

The council s arms were created upon the formation of the present district being formed out of symbols taken from the local towns and villages with the Latin motto Dum Defluant Amnes, meaning: until the rivers cease to flow . By local resident John Taylor Or call Paul on 07946 494288

Save the Mole -

Don t let them take the Mole out of Molesey ! The Environment Agency (E.A.) want to cut costs and are proposing the removal of sluice gates along the river Mole and river Ember. These gates dam-up the rivers (from Esher to Hampton Court) turning them into the large, imposing and beautiful rivers that we all enjoy today. The changes would seriously affect the Molesey landscape and would devastate the

There are several possible options within this project and one of them (for some of the river at least) is to keep the river at current levels . So be sure to tell the E.A. that the ONLY options you would support are those that don t change the river levels . We are lucky having these rivers in Molesey and if these proposals go ahead we would lose some of the attraction of living here. They would; harm the local landscape, destroy river views, spoil walks along the river, remove recreation/amenity and possibly affect house prices. They also affect the E.A. s ability to control the river levels. Join the WhatsApp group for more info (send a message to 07789 971827) Also see the E.A. website: http:// bit.ly/rivermole Act Now: the deadline for public Actual screenshot from the EA website of before and after comments is 31st July river in places.

The Moon Landing - 50 years On 20th July 1969

On July 20, 1969, astronauts aboard NASA s Apollo 11 lander became the first human beings to set foot on another world. Years of effort, dangerous experiments, and bold missions led up to the Moon landing, an event watched on live television by millions around the world. Astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin "Buzz" E. Aldrin left the Earth on a Wednesday, landed on the Moon on that Sunday, spent a bit more than two hours walking on its surface, deploying experiments and collecting samples, then splashed down safely in the Pacific Ocean the following Thursday, after 8 days off-planet. Here are some things to help you celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of humankind s greatest achievements.

drama and excitement of the Gemini 8 and Apollo 11 missions, his near-death experiences as a U.S. Navy fighter pilot in Korea and as an experimental test pilot, and the challenges that eventually came with his extraordinary celebrity. Apollo 11 is in UK cinemas from June 28, Armstrong from July 12 Summer of Space Science Museum, London Over the summer, the Science Museum puts on a three-month Summer of Space festival celebrates the history of human space exploration and looks at where future endeavours might take us. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of these extraordinary moments, the Museum's out-of-this-world celebration will reveal the evolution of humanity's relationship with space through bumper family weekend festivals, thought-provoking evening events and much more. www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/see-and-do/summerof-space

The Day We Walked on the Moon ITV, Thursday 11 July, 9pm Narrated by Mark Strong, The Day We Walked on the Moon tells the story of how he got there through spectacular footage and interviews with key figures in the Apollo 11 mission, including astronaut Michael Collins and iconic Flight Director Gene Kranz. Further interviewees include Professor Brian Cox, Dr Brian May and key Apollo astronauts Frank Borman and Charlie Duke.

BEM For Dennis Brock The Queen s birthday honours list revealed a local name this year. Dennis Brock has been awarded the British Empire Medal for his services to bell ringing. Great news for the 100 year old bell captain of St Mary s who still climbs the bell tower every week, who still helps maintain the bells and who is continuing to pass his knowledge and enthusiasm on to younger generations. He rings locally also at St Marys Walton, St Peters in Molesey and St Nicholas in Shepperton. The process of attaining an award is a long one. Fellow bell ringer Alan Worrell first approached MP for Spelthorne Kwasi Kwarteng to enquire about how to initiate the process in January 2018. By June 2018 the nomination was in the right hands at the cabinet office but required a lot of supporting material to show just how much of a contribution Dennis had made. Daughter Lorna Doyle was involved. Fellow bell ringer and captain of St Nicholas, Shepperton, Eric Pizzey was involved. Sunbury Matters, our sister title, procured copies of its various articles we had run about Dennis and his bell ringing exploits, from when he was a young man up to the current day. Kwasi Kwarteng wrote a supporting letter, Nick Pollard, chairman of the Sunbury & Shepperton History Society did likewise as did St Mary s Church, Sunbury, where Dennis has worshiped since childhood. Dennis is a popular choice indeed. It is not his first award, as he reminds me. He was presented with the Order of St Mellitus medal in 2016 by the Bishop of London. This was also in recognition of his long service to St Mary s and to the world of bell ringing. He is one of only a few hundred recipients of this award. Dennis also reminds me that he has already had a few encounters with Buckingham Palace! He has been both instructor and examiner of bell ringing as one of the skills for the Duke of Edinburgh

award scheme. As such he has attended the award of the gold medal at the palace. Over the years Dennis estimates he has taught several hundred in the skill of bell ringing, taking around 3 months to reach competency. It is not a matter of strength (although the 3 1/4 ton tenor bell at St Paul takes some!), but you need rhythm and a musical ear to ring he says. Visiting Dennis to pass on our hearty congratulations, he confessed with a twinkle in his eye to being delighted. Surprised but delighted at the award. He will be given his award at a ceremony at the Tower of London on November 19th, only days before he celebrates his 101st birthday. Meanwhile he will also be attending a garden party at Buckingham Palace. Well done Dennis! What a legend.

Molesey Matters Roving Reporter Della Reynolds The perplexing parking predicament. The residential streets off the Walton Road were never designed for cars. Too narrow and with limited off-street parking these urban thoroughfares are often difficult to navigate for both pedestrians and vehicles. Parking with two wheels on the pavement can be the only option if sufficient space is to be left for emergency vehicle access, but this means that pedestrians with buggies can be forced onto the road. The popularity of on-line shopping has brought a host of delivery vans all times of day and night to negotiate the congested twists and turns on route to your front door. Serving pedestrian, parking and transport needs is becoming increasingly difficult. The residents of School Road, a narrow cul-desac close to the shops have come together with a plan to ease the problem. They have canvassed the neighbours on applying for a permit parking scheme to allow only the residents of School Road and Challoner s Close to park. There are currently no parking restrictions on this road apart from the double then single yellow lines on entry. Neighbours who live above the shops, those who work in the shops and those who visit the shops are able to park freely. A tight bend has proved difficult to negotiate for refuse collection and other large vehicle access, particularly when cars are parked on the advisory white hatch lines or two cars are parked fully in the road. Residents of Challoner s Close, the cul-desac which spurs off the end on School Road have reported that deliveries have not taken place and the fire service have repeatedly failed to gain full access. In the Grenfell fire tragedy, the fire service was delayed by parked vehicles and we must learn the lessons from that disaster. The new Elmbridge Parking Review, which is available online, plans to make the tight corner in School Road and the corner into Challoner s Close a no stopping at any time zone. This would clearly ease the access problem but at busy times, often overnight when all the residents are home, the no stopping zone would displace up to five vehicles.

Compounding the problem in School Road is the prospect of vehicles from the new development in Hansler Grove using the street when their allocated parking spots are full. The parking within the development will be monitored with parking permits while the parking outside in School Road is currently free to all comers. Without action the parking issue is going to reach frustration levels as new residents compete with existing residents for a reduced number of spaces. The Elmbridge Parking Review is good at preventing parking in congestion hotspots but does not attempt to deal with the problem of displaced vehicles as it re-draws the parking landscape. In order to prevent displaced cars simply cluttering up a neighbouring street it may be pragmatic to end parking fees for the public carpark off the Walton Road. Since the parking charges were introduced this sizeable space has been under-utilized with just a spattering of cars parked at most times of the day. The free parking on a Saturday is complicated by the need to purchase and display a ticket. This is a deterrent for people who want to quickly stop, shop and drop. Free parking for all would help to invigorate the Walton shops and be of particular value to those offering services such as Moving Body fitness classes, hair or nail bars. Residents parking permits should offset the fall in revenue with each permit giving the specific street name rather than falling within a wider zone. All the displaced vehicles from shop workers, shop visitors and flat dwellers would be able to park in the Walton Road carpark for free at any time. Ensuring that one side of the road allowed pavement parking and the other side did not would ensure that at least one side was free for pedestrians at all times. Putting up restrictions without solutions is really not the answer and as many people will have no doubt missed the deadline for submitting to the consultation there should be a local meeting called to discuss this issue further.

News From The Molesey Residents Association

Local Shops We are fortunate in Molesey to still have a good range of small, independent local shops, but it is important for local people to continue to use them to ensure their long-term future. Elmbridge Council increased its car park charges earlier this year, but what many people did not realise was that increases were also earmarked in advance for 2020 and 2021, and this was a matter of real concern for our local shops and businesses in the current economic climate. In view of these concerns the Council, now led by MRA Chairman Stuart Selleck, has decided to cancel these future increases, and we hope this will encourage people to continue support Molesey s distinctive local shopping areas. In another initiative our new Councillor, Lesley Yauner, organised Molesey Midsummer Madness , a special event on 15 June in which participating shops in Walton Road offered discounts or gifts to encourage local shopping. Molesey Care Molesey Care is a local voluntary organisation which aims to provide transport for those (often elderly) people who cannot otherwise get to doctor s and dentist s appointments, etc. Molesey Care is desperately short of drivers, who use their own cars for transport – for which fuel costs are refunded. Drivers have no permanent commitment and are only called on as needs arise. If you can help out this very worthwhile organisation, please call Anne Byass on 8941-1010. MRA Daffodil Appeal We were delighted with the response to our Spring Daffodil Appeal. As a result of generous donations from Molesey residents, topped up by a contribution from the MRA, we were able to send £100 to the Alzheimers Society and £420 to Marie Curie. The charities were very grateful for these donations, so thanks to all who contributed. Molesey Carnival The annual Carnival took place on 8 June on a dry but rather windy day, with more motorised floats than usual in the long procession, led by Mr Mole. The MRA ran our usual electric trikes entertainment stall for small children, and as usual this was very popular with our younger residents. The Molesey Carnival is a great community event and MRA was glad to be able to support it by donating £80 toward the costs of the rig-out for the Carnival Princess and her helpers, together with prizes of £80 for the best school float and £50 for the runners-up. An enjoyable day was had by all – long may it continue. Lower Mole flood Alleviation Scheme The current flood alleviation scheme was constructed in the 1980 s to reduce the risk of a recurrence of the 1968 flood, when the River Mole overflowed, causing devasting damage in Molesey. The Environment Agency now says that a number of the gates and weirs built at that time are nearing the end of their estimated life, and that expensive maintenance or changes are needed. They have held consultations about possible options and modifications, some of which could lead to lower river water levels, which would impact on the current riverside landscape and environment. Full details, and how to make your views known, can be found online at: https://consult.environment-agency.gov.uk/ksles/lower-mole-floodalleviation-scheme/

Recipe of The Month

Gazpacho (chilled Summer vegetable soup)

We ve been serving this in the café for the last 2 weeks, and even on a cold rainy June day the customers still love it – on those days we serve it with a slice of piping hot welsh rarebit. This is the basic recipe, which is brilliant for using up tomatoes that have gone way past their best by date – or if you grow your own, even better. Make ahead and keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. Great way of getting your 5 a day in one hit!

1 kg tomatoes (can also use tinned plum tomatoes or a combination of fresh and tinned) ½ onion, ¼ cucumber (partially peeled) ½ green pepper (cored and seeded) 1 large garlic clove, peeled 50 g extra-virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar ¾ teaspoon fine sea salt & Freshly ground black pepper Half a glass chilled water For the essential garnish: ¼ Cucumber & ½ a red or green pepper finely diced Chives or basil leaves Put ALL ingredients in a blender, and blend until you have a creamy smooth base. The really important thing to do is CHILL this soup for at least 2 hours before you serve it. The flavours need to develop. Serve straight from the fridge and top with a generous handful of chunky garnish To advertise call Paul on 07946 494288

Garden View

This month - Black - eyed Susan By Rachael Leverton

You might not know its name, but you are probably familiar with the Rudbeckia. A late summer perennial daisy. It's sometimes called Coneflower or Black-eyed Susan.

ers have warm orange petals with yellow tips. Rudbeckia Irish eyes is a more unusual variety with a yellowish rather than brown cone, as well as yellow florets. It repeat flowers from July through to October. If your soil is on the dry side, try Rudbeckia fulgida Deamii . It produces shining, golden flowers with jet-black cones from early September to late October and into November. It has slightly smaller flowers, but they are lovely, and abundant. Rudbeckias naturally grow in dry savannahs, grassland prairies and in the glades of rocky upland forests across North America but they have become a much-loved bushy stalwart of the herbaceous border and will delight from late summer right through the autumn.

It flowers from early August to late September and I find it a valuable addition to the late summer garden. It does particularly well in full sun in rich, well-drained soil. You can sow them as annuals indoors in spring to set out after frost or plant as perennials in spring or autumn. Divide every 3 to 4 years and deadhead to avoid self-seeding, though personally I see self-seeding as a bonus trait in a plant! Mildew can be an issue on the foliage but can be avoided if you don't overcrowd the plants. Watch the young foliage because slugs and snails find it tasty. Once the plants are established this isn't a problem. Rudbeckia Golden compass produces masses of classic bright yellow and black Rudbeckia flowers on a bushy plant. It grows up to 70cm in height and can be grown from seed as a half-hardy annual or a short-lived hardy perennial. Rudbeckia fulgida is the classic Black-eyed Susan , with sunflower-yellow flowers and a very black central cone. It does better in damper ground than many of the varieties so choose this one if your garden is less welldrained. I love Rudbeckia Prairie glow . It is a stunning plant and good for adding height as it grows to 1.5m. Its huge 6cm diameter flow-

Happy gardening.

5 Tips for Choosing a Professional Carpet Cleaner Cheap is rarely best - However attractive saving a few quid might seem, the least expensive option might actually do more harm than good. Companies that offer heavily discounted rates may use substandard cleaning products that could permanently damage your carpets. Price is important but it should not be number one on your list of questions to ask. Know the Process Cleaning services are all different so ask questions. How does each company that go about their business? Some companies might use stronger detergents, while others might use more environmentally friendly options. How long will the drying time be? Knowing the exact process each company employs will help you to decide who to hire. Do your research - Talk to friends and family. Check review sites and ask for recommendations

on social media. The best services are found through word of mouth, so do the research and leverage your network for trustworthy recommendations. Ask About Additional Services – You don t want hidden surprises so make sure you know whether there will be extra services? And how much the company will charge for them? Will they move furniture if they need to? How will they manage difficult-to reach areas? Are they insured and registered with Are environmentally friendly products more expensive? Keep it Local if Possible - A local carpet cleaning company will have a vested interest in keeping you happy. Local companies provide services for other local residents too, so it is in their best interest to offer a high-quality service at affordable costs to ensure customer retention.

Dominic Raab Our Local MP

Locally this month, I met with our fantastic local businesses and received an update on policing in Walton. Up at Westminster, I announced my candidacy for the Leadership of the Conservative Party and my plan to build a fairer society for all. On 24 May, I attended a roundtable lunch discussion in Esher with some of our fantastic local businesses. I spoke with a wide variety of companies, ranging from Haines Watts accountants in Esher to Hurst Park Automobiles, who specialise in the restoration and sale of classic British cars. The event, organised by Natwest bank, was a great opportunity to engage with local business men and women and listen to their ambitions, challenges and biggest achievements. I made some opening remarks, followed by introductions by the businesses and we then held a general discussion where I took questions on making housing more affordable, making sure we get the right Brexit deal, and student debt. Next, I received a useful update with Elmbridge Borough Commander, Inspector Dallas McDermott, on our local policing. Inspector McDermott briefed me on the welcome news that Elmbridge is set to get three extra police officers on our streets, as well as a dedicated youth intervention officer. He also updated me on the stabbing in Hinchley Wood in January and progress towards successful prosecution of the assailant. Dallas then briefed me on local crime figures for the last financial year. The figures show burglary was down 15% on the previous year, and antisocial behaviour was down 7%, which is a real testament to our great local police men and women. Finally, we discussed the action that has been taken against illegal encampments, which we experienced last summer across the Borough.

be the next Leader of the Conservative Party. Speaking at my campaign launch, I set out my vision for a fairer UK, and my desire to give people a fair shot in life by breaking down barriers and creating opportunities so everyone can make the most of their talents. I would deliver a fairer deal for workers by raising the threshold for National Insurance contributions and taking a penny off the basic rate of Income Tax. I would build a fairer society, by boosting degree apprenticeships to widen opportunities for young people and building more homes that young people can afford. And I would seek a fairer deal from the EU, but if the EU refuses all reasonable compromise, ensure we can leave without any further delay by the end of October
