Royal visit to the Saxon Church on 6 November 2019

The Surrey Hills Society is to be presented with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service and the Friends of Albury Saxon Church will be hosting the ceremony in the Saxon Church on Wednesday 6 November at 12:00 noon!

Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant Michael More-Molyneaux will introduce Gordon Jackson (Chairman of the Surrey Hills Society) to HRH Prince Edward who will then have a guided tour of the various Surrey Hills projects and finally present the award on behalf of Her Majesty.

Residents of Albury Parish are welcome to come along to Albury Park to greet the Royal Party.   Members of the public can park up by the shooting lodge or at the far end of the track at the mansion end and then gather on the left hand side inside the churchyard.  

As you can imagine an occasion like this will have strict protocol, therefore entry into the church itself is restricted and is by invitation only.

The presentation programme is planned to take around 30 minutes so that any bystanders will not have too long to wait between arrival and departure.

SCHOOL ADMISSIONS

 

 

Surrey County Council is consulting on:

 

  • proposed changes to admission arrangements for some community and voluntary controlled schools for September 2020

  • the admission arrangements for all remaining community and voluntary controlled schools for September 2020

  • Surrey's relevant area - this is the area within which schools must consult on their admission arrangements

 

Full details of the consultation and the changes being proposed are available at Surrey Says (www.surreysays.co.uk).   

  

The changes being proposed are as follows:

 

  1. Furzefield Primary School – reduction in published admission number for Reception from 60 to 58

  2. Wallace Fields Junior School – change to the points used to measure each child’s nearest school and home to school distance so these will be calculated according to the nearest gate for either Wallace Fields Infant or Wallace Fields Junior school rather than just those for Wallace Fields Junior School

  3. Criterion 2 for children with an exceptional social/medical need – provision for children previously in state care outside England to be given priority within this criterion   

 

The consultation will run until Monday 19 November 2018. Anyone wishing to submit their views should complete an online response form. Alternatively paper response forms are available by telephoning the Surrey Schools and Childcare Service on 0300 200 1004. Please note that only response forms which are fully completed with the respondent’s name and address will be accepted.

 

After the closing date, responses will be collated and presented to Surrey County Council's decision making Cabinet on 29 January 2019. Its decision will then need to be ratified by the full County Council on 5 February 2019. Once determined the final admission arrangements will be placed on Surrey's website at www.surreycc.gov.uk/admissions

Albury Monday Cafe

 

A lovely social aspect to Albury can be found in the Village Hall every Monday. Come in and meet other people who live and work in Albury Parish. If you work from home come and network with other homeworkers, if you are just at home, come and socialise over a drink and a cake.

The cafe is open from 10am to mid-day.  We would love to see you!
