Ewell Happenings!

Ewell Village Residents’ Association public meeting

We invite all our residents to attend our open meeting to be held on Wednesday 18th October at 20.00 in Bourne Hall. We will share more details of the agenda for the meeting as it becomes available.

We hope to have a number of presentations from councillors and external speakers on key issues facing us at the present time. This includes an update on the Epsom & Ewell Local Plan, which is only reviewed every 10 years or so. It is a process that will affect us all, and with government pressing for higher housing numbers will involve tough choices. A consultation is underway and we hope to encourage as many as possible to take part. Other topics may include Epsom & St Helier Hospital Trust’s proposals for 2020- 2030; water quality in the Hogsmill; this year’s Ewell Yule; keeping the streetlights on; and an update on various planning applications including The Star and the Lower Mill. But this is your meeting; so come along and set the agenda!

After a break for refreshments, when there will be an opportunity to purchase limited edition EVRA 90 mugs, there will be a question and answer session with your three Borough Councillors, Michael Arthur, Humphrey Reynolds and Clive Woodbridge, as well as County Councillor, John Beckett. We hope a representative from the Police will also be in attendance. If you have any issues you wish to raise with them, please do come along. We look forward to seeing you.

Ewell Yule returns for festive fun

The ever popular Ewell Yule late night shopping event returns and this year is taking place on Friday December 1st from 5.00 pm – 8.30pm. All the usual attractions will be there, including Father Christmas, and a road closure will be organised, along with free parking in the village.
