Small improvements

This year we have secured a number of local highway improvements in Redhill East.

Most are small and very local – but we hope that together they make a difference to the local environment.

These have included:

  • new grit bins in Redstone Manor, St Anne’s Drive and Clyde Close
  • 20mph repeater signs reinstated on street lights through Earlswood (after they were removed by a street lighting contractor)
  • new litter bin on the junction of Hooley Lane and Brambletye Road
  • dropped kerbs in Cavendish Road and Gardens
  • replacement of long-missing fencing on the path from Alpine Road to London Road
  • new and replacement street trees and bollards in Westway Gardens and Elmwood Road
  • a bench on Redstone Hill where one used to be, opposite Redstone Manor
  • fencing improvements to improve security in Subrosa Drive
  • filling of numerous potholes.

Post-storm clearance

We have also secured agreement for trees to be replanted by Hooley Lane (following the storms) and Frenches Pond (lost in 2013) and helped fund a post-flood clean-up in the Warwick School’s ecology area.

Please let us know if any other trees or post-storm repairs are still needed locally.

Fundraising

We have helped support successful fundraising for

  • the new Scout Hut behind St Joseph’s Church in Ladbroke Road
  • the fit-out of a new warehouse for Furnistore (which has moved to a new location in Holmethorpe Industrial Estate – see  www.furnistore.co.uk)
  • and joint Surrey County Council funding for the YMCA’s future supported housing project in Redhill.

Small grants

We have used our Council grant funding to support a wide range of projects and charities in Redhill. Work we have funded includes: respite for those supporting children in care; young carers; support for blind people; new local charity Stripey Stork, who distribute used baby items (clothes, equipment, furniture and toys); The Harlequin’s Star for a Night youth event; an Alternative Energy Day at Warwick School; Redhill Youth Club’s parenting awareness training for young teenagers; community debt advice; Outline Surrey, the LGBT helpline; Redhill’s winter night shelter, Welcare in East Surrey and the restoration of war graves.
