When Shepperton and District Business Community started to put together this year’s Big Tree Night, they were particularly keen that the evening would contain something for everyone. Six month’s later, the programme for the evening looks to have done just that.
The evening on the 14th December begins at 4.00pm with Christmas Storytime at the library for children aged up to 5. The hour will include reading of Christmas stories and some singing. Also, from 4.00pm, stalls will be open in the slip roads in the High Street. At the time of writing, 22 stalls had booked, ranging from food stalls to charities and reindeer food to local businesses. There will also be a few small fairground rides for younger children. Stalls will remain open until 8.30pm.
Dear Shepperton Residents.
I am writing you thinking you might help me find information about some relatives (my grandmother's sister and her husband) that used to live in Shepperton.
Their names were: Maren Mathews, born in Norway 1891, died in Shepperton 9 January 1978, and William Henry Mathews, born 1893 and died 28 April 1978.
The council’s winter fleet has been extended to provide greater mobility and coverage. Adding to last year’s efforts, 50 farmers will support the Highways team, alongside Surrey’s 4x4 group and a further ten snow ploughs. These will help the council clear and maintain Surrey's main routes during winter.
Additionally, forty tonnes of grit is being given to district and borough councils to spread in town centres this year – more than double the amount provided last year.
The initiative will aim to tackle the rising number of doorstep traders who prey on vulnerable residents and carry out shoddy work, often at extortionate prices. Traders who ignore the door stickers and requests to leave could be breaking the law.
Enigma Social Group (18-40 age range) is a small, friendly group. We have events and activities on every weekend and also some week nights.
I received this from a Shepperton resident regarding the proposed Eco Park which raises many excellent points.
The proposed Eco Park is relevant to everybody who lives in and around the Shepperton area and I urge you to read it.
This in itself is worrying, and means that the communication is not getting through from Sita and SCC (Good for them I guess), but it is also a concern because if you are not receiving information about such a development, then how can you make informed decisions about how your local council can represent you !
