Please note that the next Neighbourhood Plan meeting is being held
Thursday 30th January 2020, The Outwood Suite, Cententary Hall
For more information please see the Neighbourhood Plan page
Since the introduction of the new black rubbish bins from Tandridge District Council we have received many queries and concerns e.g size, collections etc.
Please see the TDC website for more information
The Parish Council would like to draw peoples attention to overgrown/overhanging trees and hedges. Pedestrians should be able to pass safely and with ease along pavements but unfortunately this is often not the case. We would ask all residents to please check and ensure that any vegetation on their property is not causing an obstruction and putting pedestrians in danger.
If your hedge is growing rapidly in this wet but warm weather please can you keep it cut back. During January and February is a perfect time for a spring cut before nesting birds take resident and it is considered perfectly acceptable to carry out a side cut.
See RSPB website for Hedge Law
Many thanks for your help.

The Parish Council are proud to announce the much needed and requested community space, somewhere for residents to meet friends for coffee and a chat at Cafe Nearu in the Community Room in Centenary hall.
Local volunteers have been out and about in Smallfield helping to prevent traffic speeding through our Village.
To continue this very visible deterrent on a regular basis we need more volunteers who are available during the day. The more people who can help the less time each person needs to contribute. Getting started is easy, you just need to attend a ONE HOUR training session with Surrey Police at Reigate station and then you will work in a small team at mutually agreed times in the Village.
So if you have some time available (doesn't matter how much or little) get in touch with the Parish Clerk on 01342 841880 or email@example.com and Jeannie will put you in contact with the Speed Watch team
