Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Fri, 12/07/2018 - 09:38
Date: Friday, 7 December, 2018

 

Surrey Heath Borough Council (SHBC) recently entered Camberley town centre into the Revo Gold Re:generate Award 2018, which recognises Local Authorities redefining place-making excellence.  SHBC was shortlisted for the award after a stringent judging process which included a visit to SHBC and Camberley town centre by Revo’s judging panel of industry experts. 

 

The award was announced this week and our congratulations go to Hull City Council for their brilliant regeneration project ‘Destination Hull’.  

 

Although we didn’t win this year Revo’s Jury were hugely impressed with the scale and ambition evident for the regeneration of Camberley.  They said;   

 

‘The variety and boldness of the schemes, from the shopping centre refurbishment plans, to the redevelopment of the London Road site to open up the covered shopping street bringing residential uses into the heart of the scheme. Repurposing of existing buildings also featured which was encouraging. It was clear that the team were passionate about their town centre and their initiatives and that clear skills existed in the group which were being employed elsewhere in the county for other authorities. The jury thought that this was quite remarkable.” 

 

Councillor Moira Gibson, Leader, Surrey Heath Borough Council said;  

 

“Many congratulations to the team at Hull City Council.   

 

We are extremely proud that Camberley was shortlisted for this national award and the great feedback our schemes have received from Revo.  The council is firmly committed to Camberley and driving forward positive change and developments that support the town and its economic prosperity.”    

 

Karen Whelan, CEO, Surrey Heath Borough Council said;  

 

“Many congratulations to Hull City Council.  Although Camberley did not win this award this year, we are so pleased that the regeneration schemes were recognised by the Jury for their variety and boldness.  We have a committed team at SHBC working very hard to deliver a vibrant exciting town centre which provides homes, shops, social activities and economic opportunities for the borough.  Watch this space as there is still lots more to come for Camberley.” 

 

Camberley Be Inspired 

  

Surrey Heath Borough Council was recognised by Revo for the regeneration projects in Camberley town centre.   

 

These began with The Atrium, a large mixed-use scheme built on a seven-acre site which completely transformed the Park Street side of Camberley.  The Atrium completed in 2008 and brought homes, a cinema, shops and restaurants to this part of Camberley.  Park Street was also greatly improved with pedestrianisation, and the creation of seating and spill out areas for the restaurants occupying this area.  

 

SHBC’s current projects include the purchase and subsequent £8million refurbishment of The Square shopping centre, ensuring the centre remains an attractive place for shoppers to visit and for retail businesses to thrive.   

 

The conversion of Ashwood House, a former office building purchased by SHBC to enable its redevelopment, is also well underway which will bring 116 new apartments to Camberley and a new retail space.    

 

Substantial projects to improve the town centre car parks, Princess Way and the High Street have also begun.  

 

SHBC is also in the final stages of securing a developer partner for the 5.5 acre site next to the A30 between Park Street and the High Street for a significant mixed use scheme of retail, residential, leisure and public realm.

Date: Monday, 3 December, 2018

Following the success of the scheme over the past two years, Surrey Heath residents can recycle their real Christmas tree for free in 2019 as part of a Council-run scheme – and help maintain the Borough’s parks at the same time.

At the end of this period, the trees will be chipped and the resulting wood chippings will be used to replenish paths in our parks. 

 

Last year, more than 800 trees were recycled via the scheme, which helped restock paths in Frimley Lodge Park. 

 

Surrey Heath Places and Strategy Portfolio Holder Cllr Craig Fennell said: “This popular scheme has several benefits, for residents, our parks and the environment in general, and I encourage people to use it once the festive period comes to an end.”

Surrey Heath pays tribute in Remembrance services

Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Mon, 11/12/2018 - 11:51
Date: Monday, 12 November, 2018

Surrey Heath paid their respects to those involved in the First and Second World War, as well as more recent conflicts, during Remembrance Sunday services across the Borough on 11 November.

 

This year’s services had a special significance, marking 100 years since the end of the First World War.

 

The Mayor of Surrey Heath Cllr Dan Adams joined the morning service at St John the Baptist Church, Windlesham, before attending St Michael's Church, Camberley, together with Chief Executive Karen Whelan, for the 2pm service.

 

A parade including The Mayor, Lt Col Chris Boryer MBE of The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, and Karen Whelan then travelled along the A30 London Road following the service.

 

Many local military and community groups also took part in the parade, after which wreaths were laid at the War Memorial outside the RMA entrance in Camberley.

Deputy Mayor Cllr Robin Perry attended The Square Shopping Centre in Camberley in the morning to mark the two minutes’ silence, and joined the service at St Lawrence’s Church, Chobham in the afternoon.

Honorary Alderman Alan Whittart attended the morning service at All Saints Church, Lightwater, followed by an Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial.

The Remembrance Sunday services are organised by the Royal British Legion, with Surrey Heath Borough Council and the military working together to support the event.

Following the Camberley service, the Mayor and Mayoress of Surrey Heath travelled to Northern France, to lay a wreath on the grave of a Surrey Heath soldier.

To mark the centenary since the end of WWI, Cllr Dan Adams laid a wreath at the grave of Herbert Benjamin Daborn from Chobham, who is buried at Lapugnoy Military Cemetery near Bethune.

Cllr Adams was joined at the wreath-laying ceremony by the Mayor of Lapugnoy, Alain Delannoy, who presented Cllr Adams with the Medal of Honour of the City of Lapugnoy to commemorate the visit.

Private Daborn, 23, died from wounds sustained in battle on 25 September 1915.

A list of Surrey Heath residents who lost their lives during the First World War was provided by Surrey Heath Museum, and Pte Daborn’s name chosen at random to represent all those who made the ultimate sacrifice. 

Cllr Adams said: “The Remembrance events this year have a special significance, marking 100 years since the end of the First World War.

“I wanted to do something meaningful to mark this, and felt that making the journey to France to pay my respects at the grave of one of Surrey Heath’s fallen sons would be a fitting gesture.

“Pte Daborn’s individual story is a personal one, but representative of the thousands who gave their lives in the Great War. 

“I hope my actions, however small in comparison, will help commemorate this.

"I would also like to express my thanks to the Surrey Heath Museum staff and volunteers, without whose extensive research this trip would not have been possible.”

The Mayor traced some of Pte Daborn’s surviving relatives via Facebook, and met with them in Chobham ahead of his trip. The Daborn family expressed their gratitude that the Mayor was to mark their ancestor’s sacrifice, and that of all Surrey Heath’s fallen soldiers, through this poignant visit.

To mark this year’s Remembrance, two ‘There But Not There’ soldier silhouettes were also installed either side of the entrance to St Michael’s Church, Camberley. 

The silhouettes will be relocated permanently to the clear glass panels inside the church’s front door entrance, adjacent to the St George’s Memorial stones. 

These SHBC-funded silhouettes are in addition to those the Council installed over the summer outside the entrance to the RMAS on the A30.

‘The Battle of the First World War’ exhibition is also currently being held at Surrey Heath Museum and Gallery in The Sqaure, Camberley.

Working with the War Studies Department of RMA Sandhurst, the exhibition features each of the battles of the war, the background, how they unfolded and the impact locally. Objects and archives from the museum’s collection are on display until 22 December.

A beautiful display of poppies was also installed at The Square Shopping Centre in Camberley to mark Remembrance Day this year.

Mayor to mark WWI centenary by laying wreath at Surrey Heath soldier’s grave in France

Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Tue, 11/06/2018 - 11:30
Date: Tuesday, 6 November, 2018

The Mayor of Surrey Heath, Cllr Dan Adams will mark the centenary of the end of World War I by laying a wreath on the grave of a Surrey Heath soldier in Northern France.

Following the Camberley Remembrance service on Sunday 11 November, the Mayor and Mayoress will travel to Lapugnoy Military Cemetery near Bethune to lay a wreath at the grave of Herbert Benjamin Daborn from Chobham. 

Private Daborn, 23, died on 25 September 1915 from wounds sustained in battle.

A list of Surrey Heath residents who lost their lives during the First World War was provided by Surrey Heath Museum, and Pte Daborn’s name chosen at random to represent all those who made the ultimate sacrifice. 

Prior to leaving for France, Cllr Adams managed to locate some of Pte Daborn’s surviving relatives via Facebook, and arranged to meet them. 

Appropriately, they met at Timber Hill Barn, Chobham, where an exhibition entitled ‘Chobham and The Great War’ was being held. It featured profiles of 25 Chobham people who lost their lives during WWI, including Herbert Daborn.  

The family expressed their gratitude that the Mayor was to mark Herbert’s sacrifice, and that of all Surrey Heath’s fallen soldiers, through this poignant visit.

Pte Daborn’s nephew, Alan Daborn, now lives in Warminster in Wiltshire. His father Frederick was Herbert’s youngest brother. 

Alan’s wife Sue said: “We feel honoured that our Herbert Benjamin Daborn was picked by the Mayor to have a wreath laid at his grave in France. 

“We had a fantastic day back in Chobham meeting the Mayor and Mayoress, and visiting the World War One exhibition there. It was so poignant, we will never forget it.

“Thank you to Cllr Adams and his wife Sarah from the whole Daborn family.” 

Herbert Benjamin Daborn was born on 25 May, 1892 in Chobham, to Benjamin and Emily Daborn. He had three sisters and two brothers, and the family lived at 4 Council Cottages, Burrow Hill, Chobham.

Aged 22, he enlisted in September 1914 at Guildford into 8th Battalion, The Queen’s (Royal West Surrey Regiment). A private, his service number was G/4072. 

Following stints in Shoreham, Worthing and Blackdown (Aldershot), at the end of August 1915 his regiment were mobilised and landed at Boulogne to join actions on the Western Front.  

Less than a month later, on 25 September 1915, Pte Daborn died of wounds sustained in battle. He was just 23. 

Buried at Lapugnoy Military Cemetery, the inscription on his headstone reads: ‘Gone but never to be forgotten’. 

Cllr Adams said: “The Remembrance events this year have a special significance, marking 100 years since the end of the First World War.

“I wanted to do something meaningful to mark this, and felt that making the journey to France to pay my respects at the grave of one of Surrey Heath’s fallen sons would be a fitting gesture.

“Pte Daborn’s individual story is a personal one, but representative of the thousands who gave their lives in the Great War. 

“I hope my actions, however small in comparison, will help commemorate this.

“I would also like to express my thanks to the Surrey Heath Museum staff and volunteers, without whose extensive research this trip would not have been possible.”

Surrey Heath to pay tribute in Remembrance services

Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Mon, 11/05/2018 - 14:37
Date: Monday, 5 November, 2018

Surrey Heath will pay their respects to those involved in the First and Second World War, as well as more recent conflicts, during Remembrance Sunday services across the Borough on 11 November.

This year’s services have a special significance, marking 100 years since the end of the First World War.

The Mayor of Surrey Heath Cllr Dan Adams will join the morning service at St John the Baptist Church, Windlesham, before attending St Michael's Church, Camberley, together with Chief Executive Karen Whelan, for the 2pm service. 

A parade including The Mayor, Lt Col Chris Boryer MBE of The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, Surrey Heath MP Michael Gove, and Karen Whelan will then travel along the A30 London Road following the service.

Many local military and community groups will also take part in the parade, after which wreaths will be laid at the War Memorial outside the RMA entrance in Camberley.

Deputy Mayor Cllr Robin Perry will attend The Square Shopping Centre in Camberley in the morning to mark the two minutes’ silence, and join the service at St Lawrence’s Church, Chobham in the afternoon.

Honorary Alderman Alan Whittart will attend the morning service at All Saints Church, Lightwater, followed by an Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial.

The Remembrance Sunday services are organised by the Royal British Legion, with Surrey Heath Borough Council and the military working together to support the event.

Following the Camberley service, the Mayor and Mayoress of Surrey Heath will travel to Northern France, to lay a wreath on the grave of a Surrey Heath soldier.

To mark the centenary since the end of WWI, Cllr Dan Adams will lay a wreath at the grave of Herbert Benjamin Daborn from Chobham, who is buried at Lapugnoy Military Cemetery near Bethune.

Private Daborn, 23, died from wounds sustained in battle on 25 September 1915.

A list of Surrey Heath residents who lost their lives during the First World War was provided by Surrey Heath Museum, and Pte Daborn’s name chosen at random to represent all those who made the ultimate sacrifice. 

The Mayor met with some of Pte Daborn’s surviving relatives in Chobham ahead of his trip. The family expressed their gratitude that the Mayor was to mark their ancestor’s sacrifice, and that of all Surrey Heath’s fallen soldiers, through this poignant visit.

To mark this year’s Remembrance, two ‘There But Not There’ soldier silhouettes have also been installed either side of the entrance to St Michael’s Church, Camberley. 

Following Remembrance Day, the silhouettes will be relocated permanently to the clear glass panels inside the church’s front door entrance, adjacent to the St George’s Memorial stones. 

These SHBC-funded silhouettes are in addition to those the Council installed over the summer outside the entrance to the RMAS on the A30.

A beautiful display of poppies has also been installed at The Square Shopping Centre in Camberley to mark Remembrance Day this year.

Karen Whelan, CEO, Surrey Heath Borough Council said: “It’s fantastic to see such a prestigious brand as Jack Wills arrive at The Square and we’ve been delighted with the local community’s reaction to the highly anticipated opening of the store. The current redevelopment programme, driven by SHBC has proved to be fundamental in attracting Jack Wills and we hope to bring many more popular retailers and brands to Camberley.
