Under the Localism Act neighbourhood forums are community groups that are designated to take forward neighbourhood planning in areas without parish councils.

The DNF has been recognised by SHBC as the forum for the Deepcut Area, this is especially important on account of the PRB (Mindenhurst) development, see the Mindenhurst Development(above).

MFG&D Society 10/11/2023 - Society's Half-Yearly Public Meeting

MFG&D Society AGM The Half-Yearly Public Meeting was held on Friday, 10th November at St. Andrews Church Hall. This years meeting had as its main speaker our MP, the Rt. Hon. Michael Gove – Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

The talk was on "Standing up for Surrey Heath", which as Michael Gove explained involved the mantra ABC which stood for advocate, bridge building and communitiy. He went through each giving examples as he went along.

As Michael Gove only had 30 minutes in his busy schedule, there was meant to be a 20 minute talk followed by 10 minutes of questions. In the end he very generously stayed for 45 minutes, answering questions for 30 minutes.

MFG&D Society AGM The picture on the right shows Michael Gove with our Treasurer Carol Drew to the left and our Chair Clare Kennedy to the right.

There was the usual lively Q&A session with the local Councillors Morgan Rise, David Whitcroft and Jackie Davies from Surrey Heath Neigbourhood Watch. Unfortunately the local Police Borough Commander Gemma Taylor could not make it but did send a short presentation which you can view here(MP4).

Before the meeting closed there was the usual raffle.


 
MFG&D Society 09/07/2023 - Frimley Green Carnival 2023

MFG&D Society AGM Held on the 9th July, the 2023 Frimley Green Carnival was a great success. Though it was overcast for much of the carnival, luckily there was no rain so there were no interruptions to the procession and events at the Carnival. There was a large and enthusiastic crowd, a tremendous Carnival Procession which this year was mostly walking groups.

The procession was headed up two people carrying the Frimley Green Carnival Banner, followed by the Sandhurst and District Corps of Drums Marching Band and then a car carrying the Mayor of Surrey Heath, followed by a number by schools, dancing and gymnastic groups, charitable organizations, decorated scooters amongst others.

There were events in the central arena throughout the day with many stalls on the Green including the Society's stall.

For a more detailed account along with photos of the Carnival, see the Frimley Green Carnival 2023.

Basingstoke Canal Updates

The Society will be keeping abreast on what is happening with the Basingstoke Canal. For information on the maintenance and update work being done on the canal, see the Bulletins and News from the Basingstoke Canal Society.

In 2011 we supported a petition to Surrey Heath Borough Council to increase their funding to the Basingstoke Canal inline with the other riparian councils, you can read about it in the article on our website.
