For safety reasons the bus shelter in Jacobs Well Road (near Queenhythe Road) has had to be temporarily closed as one of the rear legs of the bus shelter is subsiding into the adjacent drainage chamber.

Planters – Fairlands Ave
On 17th August 2023 Worplesdon Parish Council tidied the planters in Fairlands Ave, which had become an eye-sore.
The Clerk and Finance Officer, assisted by Cllr Brigitte Ahier, weeded the planters, added compost and tree bark, and finally treated the railway sleepers with forest green wood preservative.
The total cost of materials came to just over £100.
In future, Worplesdon Parish Council intends to maintain the planters, although the trees will remain the responsibility of Surrey County Council.
Cynthia Slaymaker – Commemorative Plaque
On 15 August 2023 a memorial plaque to Cynthia Slaymaker was unveiled by her nephew, Huw.
Cynthia had dedicated her life to helping others. Her positive attitude to life, even when she became unwell, was inspirational to all who knew her.
Happy to roll up her sleeves and help out wherever possible, Cynthia helped out at numerous events across the Parish when her husband, Derek, was a parish councillor.
Thoughtful and kind, Cynthia was always ready to bake for every occasion. Her zest for life, community spirit and generosity will be sadly missed.
Residents are welcome to sit and enjoy the Slaymaker’s memorial bench, which is located at the bottom of Harry’s Meadow. What3Word location ///planet.press.across
Walking Football – Jacobs Well Recreation Ground
A new Walking Football group has recently ‘kicked off’ in Jacobs Well. Details of the group can be found on the Jacobs Well Knowledge and Banter Facebook page.
Alerted to the poor condition of the Recreation Ground by the organiser of the walking football group, Parish Council staff and councillors spread three tonnes of surface dressing onto the playing surface. The total cost of which came to £287.50 & VAT.
We hope the walking football group goes from strength to strength!
