Meals on Wheels and Tuesday Luncheon Club

Meals are freshly cooked at Lingfield Day Centre, then delivered in the Lingfield, Dormansland and Crowhurst area on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays by a team of volunteers.

 

In addition, there is a Luncheon Club for retired people held at the Lingfield Day Centre every Tuesday, followed by Derby and Joan Club, which is open to anyone over sixty years of age.

 

If you, or someone you know, would like to receive Meals on Wheels at home, please let us know so that your needs can be assessed and the appropriate help offered. Alternatively, you can apply via your own GP, or Tandridge Social Services Department: telephone 01883 347230.

 

We would also like to hear from you if you would like to volunteer to cook or deliver meals. Helpers work on a rota and take a once turn every five weeks.

Police
Our local Police Officer in Lingfield is PC Paul Baker who is based at the Lingfield and Dormansland Community Centre

Who do you call – Crimestoppers?
If you want to be a good citizen but don’t want anyone to know who you are - not even the Police - then stay anonymous and contact Crimestoppers.

You can ring Crimestoppers on tel: 0800 555 111 or use their online secure form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org  to leave information that the police would find useful but meanwhile keeping who you are unknown.

Crimestoppers is a national independent charity that operates an anonymous service passing information from the public through to the police.  Crimestoppers do not trace or record the calls and have no idea who called them or any means of identifying the caller. Crimestoppers then pass on the intelligence to the police for them to take the appropriate action. 

Alternatively, if you are happy to give your name then the best option is to call Surrey Police directly on tel: 0845 125 2222 they can then call you back,  ask further questions and  get a statement if necessary.  Remember Crimestoppers is there if you want to fight crime without revealing your identity.

Lingfield Library

Lingfield Library, The Guest House, Vicarage Road, Lingfield RH7 6HA  
Tel: 01342 832058

The Guest House is a 15th century oak timbered building, which was bequeathed to Surrey County Council in 1954 for public use and became home to the Lingfield Library Centre a year later. So named because it was originally used for visitors to the nearby (monastic) College of Lingfield, the Guest House was restored in 1898 and retains many of the original features.  Particularly noteworthy is the Hall, which forms the centre of the building and opens to the roof.

The Guest House contains a collection of artistic and antiquarian objects including four tapestries, thought to be Flemish in origin, which hang in the Hall. It also houses the Hayward Memorial Local History Centre.

At the back of the building is a conservatory opening onto gardens, which are also open to the public.

Opening hours:

Tuesday 2-5pm
Wednesday 2-5pm
Thursday 10am-1pm & 2-5pm
Friday 2-5pm
