Spelthorne Together Friday 19th September.
This year’s Spelthorne Assembly will be held at Kempton Park Racecourse, Sunbury on Friday 19 September 2014. The Assembly is an opportunity for representatives from the public, private, voluntary and community sectors to network, to share information and ideas and to take forward the work to improve life in Spelthorne. The vision and plans for Spelthorne, as agreed by Spelthorne Together, are set out in the Community Plan (2005 – 2015) and part of the day will be devoted to the main themes, celebrating achievements and discussing future priorities.
The Assembly is a free event and is open to anyone who lives or works in Spelthorne. Casual visitors who just wish to see the stands and network do not need to book.

Spelthorne Crime Summit.
Thursday September 4th.
Invitation to Spelthorne Crime Summit
As Surrey’s Police and Crime Commissioner, it is vital that I hear from the people I serve to ensure I succeed in my role. Over the last twelve months, I have held a series of Crime Summits across the county to give the public the opportunity to have a greater say in policing. These events were very successful – in total, nearly 1000 people attended to share their views on crime and policing in their local area.
I am pleased to invite you to the second Spelthorne Crime Summit. This event will bring together local partners, including Spelthorne Borough Council, Surrey Police, Surrey County
Council and my Office. This is a chance for you to hear what we’ve been doing over the last twelve months to address the local issues that you have told us about, learn more about community safety work in your local area and discuss how we can work together to make Surrey an even safer place to live and work. The Summit will be two hours long and refreshments will be provided.
The Spelthorne Crime Summit will take place on Thursday 4 September 2014 in the Council Chamber at Spelthorne Borough Council, Staines-upon-Thames. The event starts at 7pm, with refreshments available from 6:30pm.
Space is limited at these events and attendance is by registration only, so please do let us know early if you would like to take part. You can register to attend the event in a number of ways. The easiest way is to register online at http://spelthornecrimesummit.eventbrite.co.uk. You can also contact my office on the above details. Please feel free to pass this invitation on to anyone else that you think may be interested in attending the event – it is open to all.
I look forward to seeing you there.

BAA Heathrow Public Consultation :-
Thursday 11th September Stanwell Moor Village Hall 2.00pm - 9.00pm.
Date of next Residents Meeting. :-
Tuesday 2nd September.
Mins of the last meeting may be found on the Meetings page under previous meetings.
See below for news of the 441 bus service.
Members of Stanwell Moor Residents Association attended a Council meeting at Spelthorne who had called the bus company to explain their decision to end the 441 route through the Village. This is a short report of the meeting :-
The Cllrs who spoke in our support were Cllrs Bushnell, Grant, Saliagopoulos and Cllr Taylor all saying how disgraceful it was that the 441 was removed from the Village, without any consultation, (and replaced with the 557 which is no good), the dangers in crossing the dual carriageway, especially for children and the elderly, no bus shelter or crossing, not going past Docs, or getting children to/from school. The representative from Abellio was Alistair Willis, Paul Millin and Laurie James from Surrey County Council and County Councillor Mike Goodman. SCC have funded the 591 to run for a short time in the afternoons here Mon-Fri. We will have to wait for any results from this meeting which was SBC’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee, their Chairman is Cllr Broom, as SCC were going away to discuss all the points made. Maybe at the end of the day we will get a better bus service who knows at this stage, if we do not then it is not for the lack of trying. Cllr Bushnell even asked for a shuttle bus to assist, but not a lot of response came for that from SCC. SCC subsidise buses to the tune of £3.35 million.

Heathrow resurfacing and resulting noise disturbance.
Following our communications with you last year, I’m writing to confirm that the resurfacing of the northern runway will be going ahead this year. You’ll be aware that last year we resurfaced Heathrow’s southern runway as part of essential maintenance work that needs to be undertaken every 10 years. As I explained then, in 2014 we would be resurfacing the northern runway. This work is due to start soon and will mean that the night-time runway alternation pattern will be disrupted during this time.
Work will start on the northern runway on 23 March and will be completed by 31 October 2014. During this time, the northern runway will be closed from 10.30pm until 6am five nights a week (Sunday night to Friday morning). During this time all flights will use the southern runway. For the remaining two nights a week from Friday evening to Sunday morning, runway alternation will operate as normal. The daytime alternation schedule is unaffected.
Key areas affected to the west are Stanwell Moor, Old Windsor and Wraysbury. I appreciate this will be unwelcome news for residents in the north of the borough and I am sorry for the disturbance this will cause. Unfortunately the works are unavoidable.
We have kept members of the Heathrow Airport Consultative Committee informed about the runway works since last year and are placing newspaper advertisements next week in the local press to tell residents it’s happening (attached for your information). The information is also available on our website at heathrow.com/noise.

Points of Interest.
On the Points of Interest page we have included two societies, that, although they are in another borough it was thought that they may be of interest to residents.
Use it or lose it !
We are very fortunate to have our own Post Office in the Village, however in order to ensure that it is not one of the many Offices that have been closed it is important that we support it.
Did you know for example that you may withdraw cash as you would from other Bank machines, the only bank that is not in the system is HSBC. You may also pay in money to you account at the Post Office.
If you have any issues that concern you with regards to the Village please do contact us and we will see if it can be discussed at the next Residents meeting.
Spelthorne Walking for Health.
There was a walk organised by SWfH today, Thursday 12th April, through the Village. A group of about twenty with a leader met up in the morning for a pleasant walk on a very agreeable day. Should you wish to know more about the walks or indeed participate then go to www.spelthorne.gov.uk/walkingforhealth or if you prefer or telephone 01784-446433.
