16/01/2017 - Community Speedwatch volunteers
Local volunteers have been out and about in Smallfield helping to prevent traffic speeding through our Village.
To continue this very visible deterrent on a regular basis we need more volunteers who are available during the day. The more people who can help the less time each person needs to contribute. Getting started is easy, you just need to attend a ONE HOUR training session with Surrey Police at Reigate station and then you will work in a small team at mutually agreed times in the Village.
So if you have some time available (doesn't matter how much or little) get in touch with the Parish Clerk on 01342 841880 or email@example.com and Jeannie will put you in contact with the Speed Watch team

01/09/2016 - Protect Yourself from Rogue Traders
The Parish Council has received several reports about residents being duped by traders offering new driveways or claiming they have spotted a problem with your roof and offering to repair it at a discount price.
To protect yourself from opportunist traders such as this there are a few things you can do to protect yourself
1) Never accept unsolicited work from random house callers
2) Check Tandridge District Council's list of approved businesses
3) Use personal recommendations from friends and family
4) Never pay in advance or by cash
28/06/2016 - Overgrown or overhanging trees and hedges
The Parish Council would like to draw peoples attention to overgrown/overhanging trees and hedges. Pedestrians should be able to pass safely and with ease along pavements but unfortunately this is often not the case. We would ask all residents to please check and ensure that any vegetation on their property is not causing an obstruction and putting pedestrians in danger.
If your hedge is growing rapidly in this wet but warm weather please can you keep it cut back. Now that June is drawing to a close there should not be a problem with nesting birds and it is considered perfectly acceptable to carry out a side cut.
Many thanks for your help.
22/06/2016 - Council Tax Phone Scam
Council Tax phone scam is once again operating inner area.
Elderly residents are being called by someone claiming to work for Tandridge District Council. They are offering residents a reduced council tax band and a refund if they pay a £65 fee. They are then asked for their bank details. Unfortunately we are aware of at least one resident who has paid the fee.
Tandridge District Council will never contact residents to ask for bank or other personal details. They always ask residents tp call 01883 722000 to speak to staff so they can be sure they are talking to council officers.
If you know of anyone who is contacted please ask them to call Consumer Direct 03454 040506, visit www.adviceguide.org.uk or call Surrey Police on 101.
25/05/2016 - Smallfield Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator
Smallfield runs a strong Neighbourhood Watch scheme, to do this successfully it requires as many residents in the village and surrounding area to join in, the idea is to have as many roads represented as possible.
If your road does not yet have a coordinator and you wish to put your name forward please email email@example.com
15/01/2016 - The Surrey Green Network
The Surrey Green Network is a group of local residents encouraging others to reduce what they're throwing away, from wasting less food to recycling and reusing more to composting at home.
The Network volunteers attend local events, fairs, festivals and community days with an information stall, activities, advice and plenty of tools to help other get started in wasting less.
Volunteers are supported by a dedicated Project Coordinator and can choose how much time they spend with the team on days that suit them. They also earn rewards the more time they spend volunteering.
We would really appreciate any help letting local residents know about this opportunity. For a registration form, or just to find out more, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
