A few weeks back we shared with all our residents the pictures of a sad looking Bourne Hall Lake full of bread on the ground. We received suggestions and comments through Facebook, for signs to be put up and duck food to be made more readily available from the local shops.
Our councillors asked the Rangers for signs to be put up. Well look what we spotted today and a lake looking clean and beautiful!
You can also now buy duck food bags to take to the park for £1 at Pets Choice and All Things Nice.
We are releasing today a joint letter signed by officers of many of Epsom & Ewell and neighbouring Residents’ Associations and others with a deep understanding of our local hospitals and communities, in response to Epsom and St. Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust ‘Involvement document’.
For the full text of the letter please Click here.
We believe that Epsom Hospital should continue and be further developed and updated as a centre of excellence in a number of areas including A&E, maternity and orthopaedics.
The Trust is responsible for services being moved from Epsom to St Helier. Plans to sell land and assets from Epsom towards £80m to repair St Helier, were kept secret. The ‘Cross-party’ action group sometimes appears to favour delay and opposition rather than supporting positive proposals. Successive governments must be part of the problem, explaining in part why the hospital buildings we rely on are in such poor condition. In many ways the NHS is now self-determining leaving politicians free of responsibility.
We now feel the need to speak out impartially, addressing residents’ concerns. Without our diligence and energy, odds appear stacked in favour of facilities deteriorating further, of St Helier surviving and Epsom being sacrificed.
Please send your comments or questions via Brian Angus to firstname.lastname@example.org, leave a comment below or on the EVRA Facebook page.
Monday 18th September, 7pm – 9pm. Bourne Hall, Spring Street, Ewell.

At our last committee meeting we discussed the proposed development for the The Star pub. Currently the proposal includes the refurbishment of the restaurant area and a provision for five flats on the site.
We welcomed the news as we know what an impact the empty site has had on the High Street and the residents of Ewell Village are keen to see it back to life.
The consultation process is currently open and the review of the proposal is underway. You can see details of the proposal and make comments here
We would like to welcome all the residents to our new and improved website. Being launched together with our new Facebook page (click here for more information).
