Puttenham Parish Council are delighted to inform everyone that, with the support of the PPC and assistance from your County Councillor, Matt Furniss, The Good Intent has now received a Government Grant. 
 
This means that Dani and George will be able to reopen on 4th July as per Government guidelines with the confidence to take the business forward. 
 
The Parish Council now asks you all to please support this hardworking and ambitious young couple by giving them your custom and visiting The Good Intent pub as soon and as often as possible following opening on 4th July!
 
Message from Puttenham Parish Council:  As so many of you know the tennis court has now been cleaned, treated, repainted and new lines painted which all comes at a great cost.  It is absolutely brilliant to see so many of you making good use of it and we welcome all the new members who have signed up and paid, together with returning old members.  However, there are still a few people who are playing who have not signed up and paid a subscription so we would be grateful if you could do so immediately by contacting Will Yule on willyule@gmail.com.  In order to preserve the court’s surface please make sure appropriate footwear is worn at all times.  Finally, the court is for tennis only so please don’t be tempted to take skateboards, bikes, etc. onto the court!
Many thanks for your co-operation in keeping this facility in pristine condition.

COVID-19 Statement

Skateboard GB & Skateboard England have released the following statement regarding the Prime Minister’s announcement of 10 May.

The UK Government has announced that some outdoor sporting and recreation activities will be able to resume in England from Wednesday 13th May 2020.

WHEN USING THE SKATE PARK IT MUST ONLY BE DONE ALONE, WITHIN A HOUSEHOLD GROUP, OR WITH ONE OTHER PERSON FROM OUTSIDE YOUR HOUSEHOLD.

It is important to stress that this remains an extremely difficult situation throughout the UK and we are acutely aware that many lives have been lost to the COVID-19 pandemic. The effects of the virus will continue to be felt for a long time to come and it is imperative that you adhere to the above.

OTHERWISE WE WILL HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO CLOSE THE SKATE PARK AGAIN.

We must ensure that the safety and well being of everyone involved in skateboarding and those we come into contact will, is maintained at all times

Skate parks and skateboarders have observed the lock down very well and must keep it up and continue to act responsibly.

BY ORDER OF HM GOVERNMENT AND PUTTENHAM PARISH COUNCIL

 

April 2020

Due to the current Coronavirus situation we have been advised by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government that no elections or referendums can take place until May 6 2021.  This includes neighbourhood planning referendums.  These provisions will be kept under review and may be amended or revoked in response to changing circumstances.  This is understandably frustrating as the Puttenham Neighbourhood Planning Committee have dedicated significant time and effort to this process and naturally wants their plans to come into force as soon as possible.  We will make all updates available as soon as they are received.

 

YOU CAN NOW CALL THE COUNCIL FOR DIRECT HELP

It is now possible for any resident who feels they need help during this unprecedented time to call the Council’s new community helpline and receive direct support.  Council staff are on-hand to ensure the most vulnerable in the borough will have food and medicine and feel supported.  All residents need to do is call 01483 444400 or register online at http://www.guildford.gov.uk/athome

A message from Surrey County Council

Dear All,

I wanted to share the new Community Support Helpline that SCC has set up
to help with Coronavirus.

Please do share with your Parishes and communities as I may not have
everyone’s email or they may not be on social media.

Community Helpline number: 0300 200 1008 (live from 1pm, 19 March – then
Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm)

We have set up a new community helpline to direct you to services that
can help during the coronavirus pandemic and to help protect those most
vulnerable.

This community phone line is here for two things:

        * To help direct residents who need support, such as picking up
shopping, prescription collections or having someone who can be a
telephone friend, to services who can help.
        * To provide advice on where to register your offer of help to support
your community.

The helpline will not be able to provide any public health advice
(please use existing services such as 111) or answer general enquiries
relating to council services (these should be directed to our standard
contact page
https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/contact-us)

Any questions do please get in touch.

Kind regards

MATT FURNISS
