23 Sep 2017 - Park Lake guided visit

In 2014, Hanson completed sand extraction and processing in Buckland, after 90 years of mining activity.  Park Pit is now back in the management of the Buckland Estate, which trades as Dungates Farms Ltd (DFL).

In 2015, DFL publicly expressed a clear intent to open the area to the public for a small entry fee, with a circular walk, café and toilets, and outdoor activities using the lake.   Since then, DFL has offered three guided walks and three talks in Buckland Reading Room, presenting draft plans and listening to feedback from local residents.

DFL will submit a full planning application to Surrey CC & Mole Valley DC, around the end of August 2017) – on which the future of Park Pit will be decided.  If you would like to join a guided visit to the site, to find out more and ask any questions you may have, you would be most welcome.

The walk around the lake is just over 1 mile, so please have suitable footwear.   There are currently no toilet facilities on site, and no dogs please (sorry!).   You can walk, cycle or drive to the starting point, which will be through the black gates opposite the bottom of Lawrence Lane, on the A25 just west of The Pheasant.

Numbers will be limited to 50 people (2 groups), so please pre-book places by email.  Walk to commence 10:30am prompt and finish by 12:30pm.

22 Oct 2017 - Beautifying Buckland

The village of Buckland has been left £500 to buy bulbs to plant around the Village by John and Celia Fortune of Brockham Horticultural Society.  This will buy quite a lot of bulbs which will be supplied by Buckland Nurseries.

The planting date is Sunday October 22nd from 10a.m. onwards.  Can I ask/beg for volunteers on the day- just to plant a few each will help.

It will be mainly alongside the A25, by the pond, by the bus stop and outside the Church on the triangle, so it will not be safe for little people or dogs unless carefully supervised.

Refreshments will be provided in the Reading Room.

Please bring your own planting tools and gloves. Safety bibs will be provided.

If you can help please ring me – Tilly Mitchell on 01737 843297 or just turn up on the Great Day

26 Mar 2018 - Buckland Annual Parish Meeting

Every English Parish Council is required, by law, to hold an Annual Parish Meeting, on a date that falls between 1st March and 1st June and starting no earlier than 6pm.

An Annual Parish Meeting provides an opportunity for your Parish Council to report on its activities during the year and for residents to ask questions and provide feedback.  A break for light refreshments during the evening provides an opportunity for villagers to socialise and can be relied upon to prompt topical discussion.

Buckland’s 2018 Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Monday 26th March, at 7.30pm in the Reading Room – make a note to keep the evening free and we shall look forward to welcoming you to the meeting.
