Update on Brewery road flooding

Brewery Road Wet Spots.

As we all know, the area on Brewery Road around the Pedestrian crossing and entrance to the car park has been a long standing problem. I have been involved in meetings over the last six months to get to the put of the problem.

It seems that the underground rain water drainage in that area does not drain away efficiently due to either a blockage, collapsed pipe or roots. There has been some attempts in the past to flush it through but it seems the problem may lie under private property. So after meeting with all parties involved it was decided the best way forward was to carry out a CCTV mapping of the system to find flow direction and where the blockage is. I am pleased to report that I have now secured funding for a full clearing  CCTV mapping of the system. This should take place over the next 4-6 weeks, then we can work out the next steps

I know this is long overdue but at least thanks to my persistence we are at last making progress. I will keep on the case and let you have updates as I receive them.

Horsell Junior School realise their dream

old pool

New Pool

Everybody know the importance of swimming for children, both from the point of view of safety as well  as exercise. So Horsell Junior School decided to refurbish their pool so instead of the children being able to use it for perhaps 6 weeks of the year it would become an all year round asset for the school.

The target was about £65,000 to refurbish the sides to put an all weather cover on the pool and build a shower block and changing rooms. The school with the help of the PTA organised events and raised over £20,000. Mean while the school office  were applying for lots of grants to fill the gap. They decided to apply to Surrey County Council’s community improvement fund which is where I became involved,  I helped them to form the bid so it would show the benefit to the whole of the community and I am pleased to say they were awarded £40,000 to help them realise their dream and the project should be completed before the this summer.

This will not only give the children at the junior school access to swimming all year round and I am sure the younger childen village school will have access as well, thats without the benefit to the community as a whole as the pool will be available to rent after school hours and on Saturdays for community groups, so a win win for Horsell.
