How to knit your own poppy

In the March 2017 issue of Roundabout Lightwater, the All Saints’ Church Parish & Village Magazine, Derek Browning wrote about a cascade of knitted poppies – article shown below.

Derek, being Chaplain to the Windlesham branch of the Royal British Legion, thinks that knitted poppies would be a special way to mark the commemoration the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I on 11th November 2018.

What a bright, and simple idea. How to make  a knitted poppy you might be asking. Well, I met Wendy Alves in the Coffee Shop in Lightwater Library one recent Saturday, and she had one with her. I asked for her instructions for knitting poppies, shown below [Click on images to expand]

Police News: Arrest in connection with burglaries in Lightwater

Good work by Surrey Heath Neighbourhood Police team, as this message says,

Message from David Howie (Surrey Police, Community Engagement Volunteer, Surrey Heath)

Today (04/08/2017) a male has been arrested in connection with a recent burglary series which has recently been seen in the Lightwater area of Surrey Heath.

The male is currently under investigation and we will look to pass you more information as and when we can.

Reading the Police Crime Bulletin for August – the previous article – it was concerning about the number of burglaries in Lightwater, a relatively crime free village. It’s pleasing that the likely offender has been apprehended, about whom we’re to learn more.

Michael Gove seeks to discover Tesco’s intentions for its Lightwater vacant land site

I wrote HERE on July 4th 2013 that the planning inspectorate had approved Tesco’s plans for a Tesco Express in Lightwater. Some building materials were delivered to the site in June 2015. Since then, nothing. [photo taken in June 2015, no change since]

Lightwater is a vibrant village centre, all we’re missing is an eatery and a bank. Oh, sorry, we did have a bank and an Indian restaurant, or was it Chinese. That’s so long ago now, I forget.

I said I’d planned to write to Tesco about their intentions. However, a comment from Speedicus Triplicatum, on THIS article, suggested I speak with our estimable postmaster, Surinder Gandhum.

That I did today. Surinder tells me that he spoke recently with Michael Gove about the situation with Tesco Express, and that he has a copy of the letter that Michael has written to Tesco.

Good on Surinder for his tenacity, and Michael for taking on the issue. Guess we’ll continue to have to wait on Tesco.
