25 Mar 2019 - Buckland Annual Parish Meeting

Buckland’s 2019 Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Monday 25th March, at 7.30pm in the Reading Room. The Annual Parish Meeting provides an opportunity for your Parish Council to report on its activities during the year and for residents to ask questions, provide feedback and help influence future priorities. Our guest speaker, Rosie Jordan will introduce the work of Surrey Search & Rescue – “a professional but unpaid team of highly trained men and women who are on call to assist Surrey Police 24 hours a day throughout the year to search for, find, treat and rescue high risk, vulnerable missing people.” The evening will include a short refreshment break, providing an opportunity to say hello to anyone you have not met before and to enjoy a “catch up” with local residents you already know. Please keep the evening free – we shall look forward to welcoming you to the meeting.

27 Apr 2019 - Dorking Bowls Club - Open Day

Although Lawn Bowls has been around for centuries, the NHS has only recently cottoned on to its benefits: gentle exercise, fun, company, brainwork, laughter, cunning, rediscovering your get-up-and-go, fresh air, sunshine (hopefully). And those benefits go on: confidence building (improving your game); a sense of purpose (turning up regularly for matches); allaying anxiety levels (being amongst others who help you) and so on.

If you feel like getting in touch with your inner sportsperson in an unscary way or feel that now is the time to hang up the bicycle clips or jogging shoes (you can see how my terminology is woefully out of date), and slide effortlessly into the World of Lawn Bowls, then Dorking Bowling Club would be delighted to see you at its Open Day:

When: Saturday 27th April from 10.30am

Where: Drill Hall Road, Dorking RH4 1GL

What: bring flat shoes; free parking; taster game with coaches

Why: because it’s good fun

See you there

08 Sep 2019 - Buckland Pond Clearance and Village Tidy

Please keep Sunday 8th September 2019 free to turn out and participate in the annual pond clearance and village tidy.

Please meet us by the Pond in time for a short safety briefing at 10am from Simon Elson, a Reigate Area Conservation Volunteer who leads our activities for the Village Pond and Green.

If you are keen to help in the pond, bring waders (if you can), a spade, a bucket (or plastic trug) and a wheelbarrow.

There will be tasks suitable for volunteers who would prefer to help with tasks on dry land, so come along armed with your favourite gardening gloves and hand tools to help.

If you do not feel you can make it to the pond on the 8th but are willing to volunteer to help to undertake other tasks on our “to do list” please let us know.
