Covid Afternoon Tea Party
Worplesdon Parish Council was delighted to host a Covid Thank You Afternoon Tea Party on 1 August 2021 in the Fairlands Community Centre, to thank the numerous volunteers who so selflessly rallied to help out many vulnerable people within the community during the global pandemic. The Council was deeply touched by the amazing work carried out by the volunteers, some of which continues to date. It clearly demonstrated the resilience of the Worplesdon community during unprecedented times.
Beautiful table arrangements and a stunning arrangement of flowers to welcome in the volunteers, in vintage colours to complement the tables decorations, were provided by Mollie May-Flower (a local florist). One lucky person per table was fortunate to ‘win’ the table decoration to take home with them. The stunning ‘welcome’ arrangement was raffled off.
Delicious food was prepared by Not Just Hampers, another local business. Who also contributed two hampers which were raffled off. The raffles – with the help of Cllr Brigitte Ahier – raised £185, which will be handed to the Royal Surrey Charity fund for NHS staff.
Wonderful jazz music was provided by Andrew, Marianne and Roger and Cllr Bob McShee entertained everyone with his Magic Bob act.
Wendy Grimmond and A Nice Cup of Tea provided a charming array of vintage china – which greatly enhanced the event. Bespoke cake tier stands were also created by Chris White.
The Council would like to thank its staff for organising this event, the behind the scenes helpers for their gratefully appreciated assistance on the day and, finally, the FLGCA for their generous financial contribution towards this event and for providing the hall free of charge.

Temporary Closure Order on Public Bridleway No. 444 (Worplesdon) – Chitty’s Common
Surrey County Council made a temporary closure order on Public Bridleway No. 444 (Worplesdon) by reason of danger to the public due to development works taking place adjacent to the footpath.
The Order came into operation on 30 October 2020 and was due to expire on 24 December 2020. It has now been continued in force by the Secretary of State for Transport for a second time until 30 April 2021 or completion of the works, whichever is earlier. Due to the latest lockdown utility works have been delayed.
The Secretary of State for Transport may extend this if necessary. The prohibition described above will only be operative while the County Council, or an authorised person acting on its behalf, displays traffic signs prohibiting the said movements.
