Save our phone box!

BT are proposing to remove the phone box due to lack of use. No calls were made during the past year. This is not surprising as at present it is out of order and was the the same for at least part of last year!  Use,however, does not seem to be an overriding consideration   -  a box at Bookham was used 357 times and is still due for removal.  Forest Green has intermittent mobile network coverage, non-existent for some networks. This is an important factor.  The nearest phone boxes are at Walliswood, Ewhurst and Ockley although some of these are also under threat.BT are proposing to remove the phone box due to lack of use.

Village Hall Plaque restored.

 

 

Thank you to Hazel Watson and Surrey County Council for providing the funds to have the commemorative plaque at the village hall restored.

The plaque details the building of the original hall in 1920 and the objectives that it wished to romote; recreation, intellectual improvement and haracter formation! It also explains that the seat if remembrance was erected to the memory of Lawrance Briant J.P. in 1925.
Last year the war memorial plaques were both restored and our thanks go to Deadre Cunningham for organising this through Abinger Parish Council. As you can see from the photograph it all looks very clear and legible now.

Roaring Success!

 

 Last year’s Bonfire Night was a ‘roaring’ success. Although it rained heavily immediately prior to the evening this did not deter the good folk of Forest Green. There was a really good crowd and over £600 was raised for local charities. Thanks go to all those who made the evening so successful. After initial concerns that pallets would be in short supply we ended up with about 800! A special thank you to The Scarlett Arms and Etherley Farm for supplying the burgers and sausages for our BBQ. This year’s bonfire will be on Saturday 29th October.

It's Panto time...oh no it isn't.... oh yes it is!

The Ockley Dramatic Society, which nowadays incorporates a contingent from Capel too, are proud to present this season's Pantomime: Percy and the Holy Grail, by Sharon Holm. Loosely based around the characters of King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable, this jolly jape guarantees fun and laughter. Like the past couple of years we are performing the first week in CAPEL and the second week in OCKLEY. Additionally, we have been invited to perform in CRANLEIGH too and we are putting on one performance on the Sunday between the other performances.

Synopsis

King Arthur lies close to death, poisoned by wicked Morgana. Only the Holy Grail can save him now.  But where is it?  Sent on a quest to seek the Grail both far and wide and here and there by Guinevere, will the Knights of the Roundtable find the Grail or will pure of heart Percy, a simple boy from the forest, save the day?"

Tribute to Stephen Green

 

If you've been walking up at Leith Hill lately you'll notice a small tribute to Stephen Green at the Starvell Corner carpark.

Stephen Green was taking part in the 100-mile amateur sportive in aid of Haslemere-based charity Action for A-T when he collapsed on the lower part of the steep Leith Hill ascent.

The 55-year-old husband and father from Reading, who also took part in RideLondon in 2013, was treated by fellow riders and paramedics but sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Sean Kelly, chief executive of Action for A-T - which funds research into rare childhood disease Ataxia-Telangiectasia - said he was "overwhelmed" by the response.

 

Mr Green had been a supporter of the charity since January this year, when he was introduced to Mr Kelly through a mutual friend.

After losing out in the public ballot for RideLondon places, Mr Green offered to be one of the 65 riders taking part for the charity.

He had already raised £900 in sponsorship, way above the minimum amount required, before the day of the ride.

"It was quite clear to me from the beginning that Stephen was a very kind, compassionate and caring person," Mr Kelly said.

"His family very kindly decided that they wanted a tragic situation to have a positive outcome by asking people to make donations in his memory.
