Volunteer work programme
Details of our latest work programme covering June and July

Surrey County Council is beginning a consultation on proposals to improve walking and cycling facilities in the northern part of the Blackwater Valley area.
The consultation is open now until Friday 31 July 2015. We are inviting the public and other organisations to complete a questionnaire online or at our exhibition in July to share their views on the scheme.
 Full details of the consultation and exhibition can be found at:
 The public exhibition displaying the proposals and the information panels currently available online will be held at Building A, Watchmoor Business Park, Riverside Way GU15 3YL on Thursday 2 July and Friday 3 July 2015, 09:30 – 16:30.
Please do have a look and let them know what you think. We feel this is an important step forward to improve our walking and cycling in the area.
