We are working to set up a Village Market in Lingfield. It will be held in the Community Centre car park, once a month on a Saturday morning. Please let us know what type of stalls you would like to see there.
Grants have been approved for the following organisations:-
St Catherine's Hospice, Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance, Lingfield Scouts and Community News.
We have used most of our grant budget for this financial year, but if you belong to a local organisation which needs help with a capital project, please contact us for a grant application, which will be considered in the new financial year starting in April 2015.
Lingfield Library - An Update
Following the public meeting in June, Surrey County Council have agreed to restart work on establishing the Trust to manage the Guest House, involving the potential trustees originally identified for it. SCC and the trustees have agreed to this approach and await a date for a meeting with SCC at which we would agree the terms on which lawyers would be asked to set up the Trust. SCC has taken further legal advice on the existing Hayward bequest and remain adamant that money from it cannot be used to pay librarian staff. SCC has suggested that, once the new Guest House Trust is set up, it could seek a change to its charitable terms that would permit payment of library staff. That would require the agreement of the Charity Commission. SCC would be willing to defer action setting up the Community Partnered Library (CPL) for a year from the establishment of the new Trust to give the Trust time to achieve the change in its charitable purpose.
Some additional parking restrictions will be installed in Station Road before the end of this year. Residents have been consulted and the majority are in favour of the steps being taken to deter commuters from parking in Station Road and causing difficulties for buses and emergency vehicles.
Following a public meeting held in September, a steering group has been formed and a web site has been set up:-
Network Rail listened to our community and have published this document to keep us informed on the progress to find an alternative solution to the ramp crossing originally proposed
