A New Council, a New Beginning!

On 6th May 2021, a group of eight new Parish Councillors were elected, joining Geoff Doven (the remaining Parish Councillor) bringing the team back up to full strength. Since their election, the team have been working hard, along with the Locum Parish Clerk, to get up to speed and to plan out the months ahead.

The new councillors have very different backgrounds - some are new to the role, and some have previous experience, but together they represent a very broad spectrum of the community. Picking up the reins on Parish Council business in short order will be a challenge for the team, but every one of them is keen to get going and represent you to the best of their abilities.

In the short term, the aim is to fully understand the scope of the role and the current situation. One thing is clear, that each of the councillors is determined to represent you in a way that provides the services you need, keeps you informed on progress and is available for you if you need help or support.

We intend to keep you informed in several ways:

  • We will continue, at least for the time being, to produce and distribute “The Villager” on a quarterly basis (we’ll seek feedback on whether you would like it to continue and whether it is good value for money). We will also increase the use of social media, making best use of the available tools including continuing the use of Nextdoor.
  • Monthly meetings in person can now resume, subject to Covid restrictions, but we are still resolving their location as we plan to move these to a Thursday evening to reduce clashes with other council meetings. Watch out for further announcements.
  • It will also be possible for you to call in to the Parish Meetings, using Zoom or an equivalent service. We remain keen to meet you face to face but recognise that it’s not always easy due to mobility or other commitments.

Thank you for your support

Your Parish Councillors

We recognise that a lot of work needs to be done to bring this website up to date – please bear with us while we carry out the necessary changes. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact the Parish Clerk – andy.beams@normandyparishcouncil.gov.uk

 

Normandy SignNormandy Village is situated to the north and in the lea of the Hogs Back which is part of the Surrey Hills.

We are fortunate to have excellent road and rail links to London and other major towns and cities.

The village has its own station (Wanborough) with direct links to Guildford (6 minutes away) and Aldershot (10 minutes away). By changing trains at these stations London (Waterloo) is only a further 40 minutes away. Road links are just as good with easy access to the A31 and A3.

Normandy has a rural character with plenty of wildlife, in open fields and woodland even though it is only 4 miles from Guildford. If you like walking, running, cycling or horse riding in the countryside there are many footpaths and bridleways to explore.

There are many clubs and society's within the village covering a wide range of sports and leisure activity's, football, cricket, tennis, bowls, archery, rounders, just to mention a few.

The children are well catered for with an excellent primary school (Wyke) within the village also for their leisure we have play areas with swings, slides and other equipment.

We are a friendly and happy community and as you can see we have much to offer residents and visitors alike.

Welcome to Normandy Village.

 

 

Note: May I recommend a fantastic Social Community Website called "NextDoor" which is a great source of communication within Normandy.

Nextdoor is the best way to stay informed about what’s going on in your neighbourhood - whether it’s finding a last-minute babysitter, a lost cat, planning a local event, needing a good, local plumber or sharing safety tips.

There are so many ways our neighbours can help us, we just need an easier way to connect with them.

You can join for free and just need your postcode and email address.

Report-It

Not every accident or incident is serious enough to call the Police …but it may have an overall impact on the safety of our village.

There are many incidents that happen every day around Normandy that go unreported. If they were, they may add up to a possible long term issue that needs to be addressed.

The NPC have set up this online incident log to record evidence that could be used to submit a request to the relevant authority to get something done. Because without any evidence nothing will be!

These incidents may be related to:

Traffic (road accidents, near misses, poor or aggressive driving, persistent bad parking that could be dangerous to pedestrians etc)

Crime (burglary, theft, warnings, unwanted doorstep visitors etc)

Anti-social behaviour (aggressive behaviour, casual litter, fly-tipping etc)

Other (property violations, broken playground equipment, damaged fencing, damaged trees etc)

Note that this is NOT an alternative process for reporting serious incidents to the Police, Guildford Borough Council etc - please contact them as you would normally do.

Electrical safety in privately rented homes

  We will improve the safety of residents living in privately rented accommodation in our borough by introducing fines for landlords who do not meet electrical safety standards.
