The Frimley Green Carnival Committee organises 3 events in the Frimley Green Area.


Any proceeds from the three events are distributed to local charities.

For information or questions like having a stall at the Carnival, email:

FGCarnivalCommittee@mfgdsociety.org.uk




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 below).




Farnborough Airport Concerns

If you have any complaints or concerns about aircraft noise, the frequency and timing of flights, please contact the Society as we have a representative on the Farnborough Airport Consultative Committee (FACC) and on the Quiet Flying Programme working group of FACC. We are in a position to be able to make representations on your behalf and as a Society we carry more weight than an individual does.

To contact us email:

Society News

MFG&D Society 21/06/2022 - New Bench on the Green

New Bench on the Green Update from Graham O'Connell:

Some time ago I liaised with SHBC about filling a gap in the defences around the Green and we agreed that as it was next to the bus stop a bench would be a good idea rather than more wooden posts. I'm pleased to say that today the bench has been installed. As it is bolted down it will be easy to move when the road widening takes place.


 
MFG&D Society 02/06/2022 - 2022 Platinum Jubilee Fun Day

Update - 22/05/2022

Late May Update (pdf) released, includes an updated schedule, maps and explanations for the Surrey Heath works.

Current activity in the local area:

  • Open cut installation on Balmoral Drive:

    • This work is estimated to take around nine months as we move along the road.
    • The majority of the work will require a single lane closure, with short closures and diversions as we cross junctions.
    • Footpaths will remain open at all times.
    • The main installation work is currently taking place approximately 100 yards down from the roundabout (B3411) off Frimley Green Road.
    • Once we have completed this, will move towards Sandringham Way in the westbound carriageway.
In June, they will start:
  • Open cut installation on SC Johnsonís land.
See the Letter (pdf) to local residents for more information.
—————————————————

The Esso Southampton to London Pipeline Project (ESLPP) have released a local area specific timeline for installation which you can view on their website, along with a new interactive map that shows information about construction in each local area. The timetable gives an indication, by month, of when they expect to be working in each area. However, they are still progressing some construction details so the timeline may be subject to some change. †

Residents will be informed about works in their area before ESLPP start and local area information will be updated regularly on ESLPP's website before and during construction.

For more information about the Esso Southampton to London Pipeline Project see the Article on this site.


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.
