Christmas Lights in Bookham
You will have noticed that this year there is a new set of Christmas lights in Church Road, Lower Shott and the High Street. This is thanks to a new contractor DCI Lighting who is based on the Bookham Industrial Estate. DCI responded positively to the BRA’s request for a cheaper solution than that of the previous supplier.
These lights are organised and paid for by the BRA with additional funding from Mole Valley District Council and Bookham Retail And Business Association.
This is just one of many activities such as the monthly litter pick and tree planting that the BRA carry out on behalf of everyone in Bookham. Unlike the expensive proposals from the team that want to set up a Village Council the BRA costs those who choose to join the BRA less than a penny per day per household to belong.
National Remembrance Day
On the 11th November residents attended the National Remembrance Day service at St Nicolas Church followed on 13th November by the laying of a wreath at the Friendship Tree in Eastwick Park Avenue by Bookham Scouts.
National Trust volunteers clear drainage channel
At the request of Michael Agius, BRA’s Vice Chair and Infrastructure lead, volunteers from the National Trust have started clearing overgrown vegetation in the drainage channel that runs from Sole Farm Road down to Foxglove Cottage. This was causing a blockage in the drainage channel which in turn was contributing to flooding problems in Little Bookham Street. Another example of local people contributing to the wellbeing of the village.
