The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community based in Farnham are introducing a new campaign called ‘Cheap & Easy Cooking’ in an effort to try and play a part in reducing food poverty. Do visit the link, there are some cheap and cheerful curry dishes that you can make for the family!
‘Cheap & Easy Cooking’ campaign from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community:
There will be a temporary road closure during the night of the 25th of September 2020 between 7pm and 7am. Vehicles will be prohibited from entering and proceeding in that length of A325 Wrecclesham Road that extends from its junction with A325 The Street, to its junction with Ellerton Way. This is for SES Water to carry out reinstatement and/or maintenance works.
Advanced warning signs will be displayed and the temporary closure will only operate when the relevant traffic signs are displayed. Access for emergency services, residents, businesses, pedestrians, cyclists and equestrians will be maintained at all times. The vehicular diversion route will be via: Northbound – The Street, Wrecclesham Hill, Echo Barn Lane, Shortheath Road, Ridgway Road, Firgrove Hill, Old Farnham Lane, Great Austins, Tilford Road, Station Hill, Farnham By-Pass (WB) and Weydon Lane. Southbound – Weydon Lane, Farnham By-Pass (EB), Shepherd & Flock R/A, Farnham By-Pass (WB), Station Hill, Tilford Road, Great Austins, Old Farnham Lane, Firgrove Hill, Ridgway Road, Shortheath Road, Echo Barn Lane, Wrecclesham Hill and The Street.
Below is a map displaying diversion routes:
Wrecclesham Village Voice, in conjunction with local Councillors Paula Dunsmore and Wyatt Ramsdale, advise a public consultation on the provision of a pedestrian crossing on The Street is now open.
Summarised below are the four crossing options as detailed in Surrey County Council’s feasibility study. These are based on last year’s pedestrian crossing survey and more recent analysis of vehicle’s speed and driver’s sight lines. All the options proposed are for the provision of a crossing at some point along a section of road between 60 and 68 The Street. Following a review of replies and confirmation of our resident’s preferred option further feasibility work and approvals will be required before this project can progress. Expanded summary details of the proposals, and a copy of the full feasibility report, are linked below.
- Option 1 – a lights controlled crossing with audible signals at the site. To facilitate this it is proposed the current bus layby is relocated to the parking layby near number 38 The Street with a subsequent loss of resident’s parking spaces.
- Option 2 – a pedestrian refuge island at the site. To facilitate this it is proposed the current bus layby is filled in, the bus will stop in approximately the same place but at the newly built kerb.
- Option 3 — an uncontrolled crossing at the site. To facilitate this it is proposed the current bus layby is relocated to the parking layby near number 38 The Street with a subsequent loss of resident’s parking spaces.
- Option 4— an uncontrolled crossing at the site with the bus layby retained.
The estimated costs range is from up to £90,000 (Option 4 ) to £200,000 (Option 1), excluding utility relocation costs.
If you would like to comment on the proposals and specify your preferred option please email the local Councillors who have worked with WVV on this project for the past 18 months
Please put – Pedestrian Crossing Consultation – in the subject line.
Only email replies received by 23:59 on 9th August 2019 will be considered.

Thank you all for your support and postings which helped us prove action was required. We have an additional request for our community. Recent discussions with a representative from the Road Haulage Association have highlighted the need to record the names of any haulage companies involved in these high risk incidents. If you are ‘first on the scene’ and have the time please record as many details as possible and post online for us to pick up and record. It would be a big help. Thank you again for your ongoing support with this campaign.
