Phew, that’s four press releases from Surrey Heath and one from Camberley Theatre in the last few days. I really can’t let them all go by with a comment or two. So here we go.
- Fly-tipping: It’s a real anti-social menace throughout the country. As regulations are tightened to ensure the correct disposal of rubbish, there are people minded to ignore them. With plenty of quiet roads and lanes in Surrey Heath fly-tippers find easy opportunities to avoid their responsibilities. It’s good that Surrey Heath is improving its focus on this nasty practice, although I fear that rewarding tip-offs is a palliative. While I’m loath to suggest more surveillance, low-cost CCTV in the ‘popular’ fly tip locations would likely bring better results.
- Purchase of St George’s Industrial Estate: While the Council say it’s about investing in the borough, I reckon the opportunity to earn a good return on the investment rates highly among reasons for purchase. Reading the press release I think it’s a stretch to say the acquisition assists “in the regeneration of Camberley town centre.”
- Photo call for stars of Aladdin: Mark Slowey – Window Twanky in the pantomime, is a regular in Camberley panto’s. Two reasons for this – he’s v.v. good as the dame, and secondly the audience love him. I’m going to try and get along to meet him on the photo call day.
Enough, enjoy the Bank Holiday.
