Many people in Wonersh, Blackheath and Shamley Green
get involved in local events, clubs, societies and community
projects. It is a great way to help improve life in
our villages, meet new people and get the satisfaction
of making a difference. It’s easy not to get involved,
but it is more fun and rewarding if you do.

Wonersh Traffic Group
Speeding traffic in our villages is one of the major concerns of residents. Wonersh has a long-standing Traffic Calming Working Party that works with the police and local councils to investigate ways to reduce speeds and make local roads safer. There is an on-going Speedwatch scheme under which trained residents periodically monitor traffic speeds with a radar gun. If you would like to volunteer to participate please contact Glyn Powell-Evans st firstname.lastname@example.org. Projects that have been completed include erection of new village gateway signs, installation of a vehicle activated speed sign on Wonersh Common Road, textured road markings on entrances to the village, build-out of the kerb at the Grantley Arms, and removal of The Street as a suitable route on commercial satellite navigation systems. If you have any comments or suggestions to make on the activities of the working party, please contact Richard Bawden at email@example.com.
We have excellent playground facilities on the Common
in Wonersh and at Lords Hill in Shamley Green. Most
of the equipment on these playgrounds has been purchased
as the result of fund raising activities in the 2 villages.
The children of many of the playground committee members
are now too old to use the equipment. We are looking
for new committee members, especially parents of children
who regularly use the playgrounds.
If you would like to get involved please telephone Louise
Healy on 898539 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
